Danny! - Deckin’ Halls (And Jinglin’ Bells)

Posted 2 years ago
Hype Music Presents Holidays, Vol. 1

Every year, a few enterprising emcees throw their hats into the “holiday music“ ring, attempting to craft that joint that’ll become the next White Christmas (or at least the next Wonderful Christmastime). To keep it one-hundred, Danny! wasn’t the first emcee I expected to hear ringing in the Yuletide, but I’ll be damned if the South Carolina mainstay’s Deckin’ Halls (And Jinglin’ Bells) isn’t one of the catchiest seasonal cuts I’ve heard in a hot minute. Over his own chilly synth arpeggios and (of course) jingling sleigh bells, he lets listeners know just how high his spirits are this Christmas season: “I’m in a mood that’s as good as food, prepared in underwear by Penelope Cruz.” But his cynical, rough-edged humor is in full effect. On the hook, he can’t helping pointing out that he’s “got more fans than Stalley.” This joint is slated for inclusion on MTV’s newly-released Hype Music Presents Holidays, Vol. 1 compilation. Additionally, watch for Danny! to participate in our newly-relaunched freestyle series at the top of 2014.
