1. Phill Most Chill - "Santa Claus Is a Soulman" Mix (AUDIO).


    Funky yuletide breaks n' beats en masse in this new holiday mix from Illadelph's finest, Phill Most Chill (he of Golden Era indie rap nuggets like this , and the acclaimed Neva Stop Diggin' mixtape series). You will, of course, hear the likes of bad Santa classics like Albert King's "Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin'" and Clarence Carter's "Back Door Santa." You'll also hear stuff like an unidentified sitar version of "Little Drummer Boy" and other shit you wish you knew. Oh, and doubles of "Christmas Rappin'" (because what are the holidays without spiked egg nogg and doubles of "Christmas Rappin'"?) Listen below, or download, HERE .

      Soulman definitely comes correct with the Xmas hits on this. I've been involved in doing a series of festive hip hop, funk and more mixes called Season's Beatings - you can listen to them all here:

      This column from the Soulman in 1995 in Rap Sheet featured what was easily the best non-EgoTrip Rap List of all time, and maybe the best rap list period.

      Volume 14 - The Top 20 Hip-Hop Albums Of All Time,
      From A Beat-Fanatic's Perspective

      That list introduced me to a few incredible albums that I had overlooked from the prior years, and the list remains as definitive a list of great albums as I can imagine. I mean... this list covers just about all of the beat lover bases short of work from Dilla and Madlib that hadn't come out yet.

      Or maybe that's just how I feel.
