Aside from Run DMC's 1987 recording of Christmas in Hollis, there haven't been many hip-hop holiday songs -- until yesterday when DMX dropped his own rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." The "Party Up" rapper stopped by the radio station 106.7 Lite FM in New York City, which is playing non-stop Christmas music during the holiday season. He put on quite the show for the DJs.

DMX used his hands to drum on a desk in the studio, creating back-up percussion while he sang, and chimed in with a bunch of "come on's" reminiscent of his early rap songs.

What do you think of his rendition? How about the fact that he remembered all of the reindeer names? Let us know your thoughts here in the comments.
