A Classic Holiday Video: Christmas in Hollis by RUN DMC

Run DMC Christmas in Hollis

One of the all-time best rap/Christmas collaborations is easily the RUN-DMC tune, Christmas in Hollis. The Christmas rap track has stood the test of time and continues to be a traditional song played at parties and in many households each season. Parents may not have fully embraced it, but the track definitely has it's place in the history of rap and the Holidays.

The video is also something special, complete with a mischievous elf who's determined that there's quite a few naughty ones out there. We also see the Adidas-wearing Run DMC (including the late Jam Master Jay) take a trip to a snow-filled park and see a bag of money dropped by Santa. They learn the true meaning of Christmas is to give the money back, and when you do Santa rewards your efforts. The elf learns the lesson of "never try to steal a rapper's gold rope chain necklace when his mom's watching". They just don't make rap videos like this any more. Check it out below, and consider making this one of your Xmas ringtones on your Sprint, T-Mobile or whichever phone you're rockin for the holidays...

The Christmas in Hollis song can be found on A Very Special Christmas album or Run-D.M.C. - Greatest Hits.
