2009 Rewind: X for Xmas



XMAS The Dat Heat crew dropped a free holiday mixtape two weeks before Christmas. It’s essential downloading if only to get Bware and X2C's "Gift Rapping 2" — a perfect addition to any Christmas mix. It's wholesome (no cursing), nostalgic (dudes remember the Christmases when they got their first microphone) and crazy catchy. It might be the best seasonal rap since “Christmas in Hollis.” For pop fans, Nashville’s the Nobility (fronted by Searcy’s Sean Williams) released a hook-y EP, “I’ve Got a Present for You.” Little Rock’s Isaac Alexander co-wrote the title track.
