Death Row Christmas Album Appreciation Thread
« on: December 14, 2020, 10:36:20 PM »
I bump this shit every year bout this rhyme.... very under-rated and below the radar album.  I remember the video gettin played a couple times Christmas 96' but never even saw the album anywhere till like Summer 97' saw it on the used cd rack for like $7.00 resale.  Then, every now and then I'd see it being sold around Christmas time in the late 90's.

This album had some great moments.  The opener with the whole DPG/LBC fam was the single and video.  The Dogg Pound joint "Wish I Had" is a heartfelt joint that is up to their prime standard of the mid-90's... Nate and Butch Cassidy have a banger on there, song that can bring you to tears, on the level of "I Don't Wanna Hurt No More" type of track--and a little backstory they recorded it right after Pac died.  Even gay boy Danny got a gem on the album

I havenít listened to the album yet but will break it out in the next couple of days.

I have been listening to the Cookin Soul x MF DOOM Christmas album on repeat though through YouTube which is brilliant and I advise everyone check out.

Yeah that's the joint they recorded when Pac died.  They were already in the studio and found out he died.  The story popped up in a magazine article somewhere.

Pretty dope for a novelty album.  I bump certain tracks off it around the holidays.  The Nate track is definitely a keeper.
