‘The Night thePhantom* Stole Christmas,’ a special holiday album from…thePhantom*
“When’s the last time a hip-hop holiday album came out?” asks local rapper thePhantom* of visitors to his Bandcamp page. Decent point, although I wouldn’t necessarily say hip-hop and Christmas music have a peanut-butter-and-jelly thing going on.
Nevertheless, thePhantom* has answered his own question, released a six-song, Christmas-themed EP that you can purchase for $5 dollars. It’s a dancy, bizarro mix of hip-hop and house; the first track is titled “The Fall of Mr. Elf.”
