Sufjan Stevens Releases Free Christmas Rap Mixtape

Sufjan Stevens keeps his love for Christmas going with the gift of a rap-themed mix tape. The indie star is following the release of Silver & Gold (his second Christmas album) with a free download of some RAP re-interpretations titled Chopped and Scrooged. Das Racist, Busdriver, Kitty Pryde, the Pro Letarians and more all round out the list of guests offering their talents to Stevens holiday songs. Busdriver’s “Ding-A-Ling-a-Ring-A-Ling” remix could certainly liven up a few holiday parties. Definitely give that one a listen if nothing else.
