DMX Delivers History’s Best Rendition of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

Pin It

By Bryan Hood | It may only be the third day of December, but this right here, ladies and gentleman, is the single greatest thing you will experience on the Internet this month. On a recent visit to New York’s Power 105.1, DMX was persuaded to perform a song near and dear to his heart. It wasn’t “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem,” “Get at Me Dog,” “Slippin,’ ” or any of his other undeniable classics — instead X delivered a spirited take on the children’s Christmas classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” There’s pretty much nothing about this video that isn’t perfect, from the rapper already knowing each and every word of the song (“I know the lyrics!”), to his hand-drummed backing, to finishing it all of with a loud and gutteral, “What!” Whatever it is you’re doing right this instant, including reading this post, stop it, and watch the video below:

Update: Yes, this is apparently from the same video session as when DMX first discovered Google. If you haven’t already seen it, you can do that here. We highly recommend it. (via Grantland)
