Billboard -- What's better than reciting the rhymed verses of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"? Listening to Big Boi tell and mid-way rap the children's story right in time for the holidays. There are three key moments in Big Boi's Christmas message -- him jokingly whispering to Chamber Group publicist Sherlen Archibald that he "can't read," pointing out that cartoons also hate and scartching the word-for-word storytelling mid-way and rapping the verses for a brief moment. It's only right. The holiday joy for rap fans doesn't end with Big Boi. Earlier this month (Dec. 3), DMX spit his own rendition of the Christmas carol, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" -- which I wish was available on iTunes -- at Power 105.1's NYC studio. His signature "What?!" yelps and barks before and after naming all of Santa's reindeers can warm up anyone's heart. Whose spin on a Christmas classic was better: DMX's "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" or Big Boi's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"?
