Christmas is tomorrow (Dec. 25), and if you’re still not in the holiday spirit, Ja Rule is out to change that. The 39-year-old rapper recently hit London’s BBC Radio 1 and narrated the Dr. Seuss classic, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
In the almost seven-minute audio recording, the native New Yorker vividly takes listeners on the journey of how the mean, green monster attempts to ruin the holiday for all residents of Whoville by stealing their presents.
Ja’s take on the several decades old story isn’t the first time a rap legend gave a holiday classic his best shot. Three years ago, DMX hilariously rapped “Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer” for New York City’s Power 105.1 in a minute-long clip that unsurprisingly went viral.
