Baltimore crew Creek Boyz made a name for themselves over the past year with their special ability to transform trap into something that feels closer to what a boy band or gospel group would create. Some 808s dancing while the layered vocals of four guys singing their hearts out soothes your ears? Yes, please. The best example of their skillset is obviously their breakout 2017 hit "With My Team," but there were times this year ("Trap Digits," "Loco," and "Boss Right Now") when the Creek Boyz showed that there are more dimensions to be added to an already-working formula.
Today The FADER is premiering a new, holiday-themed track from the group that builds on those gifts. "The Recipe" is largely about getting it in with that special someone during holiday season while you're off the spiked egg nog, but hearing Creek Boyz's rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" on the song's hook is especially enjoyable. It's hard to make a unified "rum bum bum bum" sound anything short of stellar. Listen to the track below.
