DMX’s ‘Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer’ Should Be The ONLY Version Anyone Ever Sings (VIDEO)

DMX sings “Rudolph,” and it’s every bit as amazing as you’d imagine it to be.

DMX is not exactly known for his “cuddly” side — just ask Drake or Rick Ross. But we were all kids once, I suppose. Dude didn’t exactly leave the womb a gangster (well, on second thought, he was probably pretty hard in the prenatal center). Either way, tough or not, most of us grew up listening to Christmas carols, DMX included. And that brings us to the time DMX sang “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” — HIS way.

Watch DMX sing “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” after the jump.

Stopping by New York’s Power 105.1, the “What’s My Name” rapper didn’t even need a lyric sheet as he rattled off a Christmas carol by heart. Drumming by hand, DMX reeled off the most fantastic rendition of “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” maybe EVER. Who knew that DMX was such a holiday softie?! We thought for sure a gruff guy like him would be further down the Grinch/Scrooge end of the spectrum. We are seriously close to renaming the holiday “DMXmas.” Well, OK, maybe we won’t go that far, but it would be a cool nickname. It fits so well!
