Video: Run DMC – Christmas In Hollis (New All-Star Hip Hop Medley)

An international cast of hip hop artists joined forces to reinvent Run DMC’s holiday classic from 1987, “Christmas In Hollis.” The medley includes contributions by Deltron 3030, Shad, Camp Lo, Pete Rock, Kardinal Offishall, Eternia, SonReal, and Canadian hip hop legend Maestro Fresh-Wes. The green screen video is a bit awkward, but it’s a fun watch to see Shad getting his Slick Rick on, Kid Koala cold chillin’ as Santa, and Pete Rock’s holiday wishes would make a great Christmas e-card.

An international cast of hip hop artists joined forces to reinvent Run DMC’s holiday classic from 1987, “Christmas In Hollis.” The all-star medley is part of an hour-long Christmas Eve music special by Canadian TV show George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.

The cover includes contributions by Deltron 3030, Shad, Camp Lo, Pete Rock, Kardinal Offishall, Eternia, SonReal, and Canadian hip hop legend Maestro Fresh-Wes.

The green screen video is a bit awkward, some may even say cringeworthy, but it’s a fun watch to see Shad getting his Slick Rick on, Kid Koala cold chillin’ as Santa, and Pete Rock’s holiday wishes would make a great Christmas e-card. Happy holidays!
