A Very DMX Christmas with rapper's 'Rudolph' cover

Posted: Updated:
YONKERS -

A rapper from Yonkers is spreading holiday cheer, releasing his own version of a classic Christmas carol.

"Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, WHAT'S THAT! Rudolph with your nose so bright, won't you guide my sleigh tonight! C'MON!" That is just one of the lyrics in DMX’s version of "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer."

It's the final mix of a freestyle he did in 2012, creating his own beat on a nearby table.

The cover is part of Spotify's “Singles Christmas Playlist” also featuring Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus, and Demi Lovato.
