Kanye West Feat. CyHi Da Prynce & Teyana Taylor “Christmas in Harlem”
Here’s another G.O.O.D. Friday jam – probably the last of the year – from the Kanye West camp.
I usually despise holiday music—even when it comes from decent artists it always seems so dreadfully corny—but “Christmas in Harlem” is actually a pretty solid track.
The mid-tempo beat’s got that kind of infectious keyboard riff we’ve heard on “Heard Em Say,” or even “Blame Game.” Teyana Taylor does a good job singing the hooks. And Kanye spits some pretty funny rhymes – including a nasty reference to hot chocolate and a Sleigh Bells shout-out.
Apparently this is an early leak, as Kanye took to his twitter today to post that he got the entire Dipset crew on the track – “Eeeeevrybody on it!!!! Cam, Vado, Jimmy, Pusha, Big Sean, Cyhi, Teyana Taylor & Musiq.” Look out for that version dropping this Friday. As for now, we’ll take what we can get.
