‘Santa Claus Goes Straight to the Ghetto’
Not to be confused with the James Brown song of the same name, this song features the colorful yuletide rapping of Snoop Dogg, backed by Daz Dillinger, Nate Dogg, Tray Deee, Bad Azz and some other dudes. The track, which leads off the 1996 holiday compilation “Christmas on Death Row,” wobbles back and forth between honest childhood memories of Christmas in the hood and goofy tales about Santa delivering bags of certain green leafy substances. —Jeff Royer
