Daily Inspiration: Christmas Video Roundup

December 15, 2010

Hearing Kanye's early gift to Harlem and everywhere today set off an avalanche of gingerbread feelings around here. First reminded us of the "Like Christmas", the Gaza Empire mini-movie where Sheba and Vybz Kartel head upstairs at a live holiday party to rekindle memories of years past, then get transported into a snow-globe where their tropics blood allows them to remain in Kingston clubwear even though the air around them is froze. Vybz has actually done a Christmas song before. See the mental avalanche dump of Christmas videos that we dug out from YouTube since this all started. Vintage Bad Boy and Death Row plus Juelz, Boyz II Men, Bruce the Boss, stop-motion reindeer getting busy and more (not "Christmas in Hollis" cause we know you've seen it), after the jump.
