Journalist Bae | Christmas Music “4 The Culture”

On behalf on Straight Official Magazine, we want to wish you all a very happy holiday season. I’ve seen more than a few complaints that this time of year just doesn’t feel the same. Well, congrats! You’ve unlocked the next level of life, it’s your turn to make it feel like something. Now I can’t organize your gathering, but what I can do is give you a soundtrack of Christmas music for the culture. Choose wisely.

1. Home for the Holidays (Vol. 1 & 2) – Love Renaissance

These black people really sat in the studio and made their own versions of ‘Feliz Navidad’ and ’12 Days of Christmas’. Go find this EP right now – I can’t make this up! Featuring DRAM, Summer Walker, 6lack, and more…

2. Christmas on Death Row – Death Row Records

I love Christmas so this was the perfect rabbit hole for me to fall down. If Love Renaissance (LVRN) wasn’t enough, we have a compilation from Death Row Records and it’s the vibe you never knew you needed.

3. Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama – Chance The Rapper + Jeremih

I just want to say that EVERYBODY’S SO CREATIVE! They just don’t make regular Christmas songs anymore. If you really want to turn up for the holidays – take this trip to Chi-town. You ever heard Jingle Bells like this?

4. A Wonderful Christmas With Ashanti – Ashanti

This is y’all girl, right? Enough Said. At least she’s singing classic Christmas music…

5. Miss Patti’s Christmas – Patti LaBelle

Let’s wrap this up! I hope this thread brought you as much joy as it brought me. To top it off, we have a collection from Patti LaBelle. I had to give you something you can definitely play for the aunties. We’re going all across the spectrum here.

Okay, wait – honorable mention… Have you all heard “All I Want For Christmas” by Dej Loaf & Kodak Black? That’s enough. I’m not about to play anymore.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! #GetSOM via @MochaTheMack
