DMX Has Finally Gifted Fans With A Studio Version of 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer'

The hip-hop vet is officially a Christmas legend.

Published November 29, 2017

Back in 2012, DMX 's gruff rendition of the Christmas staple "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" unexpectedly became an Internet sensation. Now, five years later the hip-hop vet has finally gifted fans with a studio version of the viral hit.

Teaming up with Spotify Singles, X has made an official remix to the classic holiday track titling the song "Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer." Under the production of Divine Bars, the It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot lyricist puts his Christmas spirit on full display. 

The single comes fresh on the heels of news that X will be returning to reality TV with a new docu-series tentatively titled In the Dog House. Following a successful stint in rehab, DMX is set to give viewers an intimate look at his life as he preps his forthcoming album and attempts to repair his relationship with his 15 children.

Take a look at the original magic of his rendition of the Christmas staple, below. 


Throughout the new release, X, of course, doesn't hold back as he roars reindeer names over sleigh bells and recreates some of the original ad-libs.

Take a listen to "Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer" below.
