Christmas songs can be found almost anywhere in December as they play on the radio, in commercials and on people's home stereos. Not only do you hear traditional tracks, but rappers also spin their own holiday renditions. This year, rapper Fetty Wap decided to join the club when he released his own Christmas-themed song called "Merry Christmas," featuring Monty.
Fetty Wap teased he would be releasing a new song on Twitter. The "Trap Queen" rapper shortly after posted the song for all to hear and to help his fans get into the holiday spirit. You can listen to the track below. [Warning: the song features NSFW lyrics.]

In addition to releasing the new song, Fetty Wap also announced he'd be heading out on a U.S. headlining tour in February 2016 with Post Malone and Monty. The 24 year old is one of the quickest rising stars in hip-hop. His debut album "Fetty Wap" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and has gone on to sell over 204,000 copies.
Throughout the years, many rappers have gotten into the Christmas spirit by releasing their own songs that can be put on Christmas playlists. In addition to Fetty Wap's new Christmas song, here are five other holiday raps to listen to in the days before Christmas:
1. Run-D.M.C. -- "Christmas in Hollis"
"Christmas in Hollis" is arguably one of the most popular Christmas raps of all time. The hip-hop legends created a very catchy holiday song about their neighborhood and homes in Queens, New York.
2. TLC -- "Sleigh Ride"
While the group recommends that you "don't go chasing waterfalls," there's nothing wrong with a sleigh ride to celebrate Christmas. The R&B group gets festive and puts their own twist on the classic "Sleigh Ride."
3. DMX -- "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer"
This isn't the longest Christmas rap out there, but who doesn't want to hear the "Party Up" rapper bark out one of the most popular Christmas songs in a rap?
4. Ying Yang Twins -- "Deck da Club"
To the North Pole, to "Deck the Halls". The "Get Low" rappers spread the sounds of the season with their own take on the holiday classic in "Deck da Club."
5. Kanye West -- "Christmas in Harlem"
What's Christmas without a little Kanye? "Christmas in Harlem" also features Cam'Ron, Jim Jones, Vado, Pusha T, Musiq Soulchild, CyHi Da Prynce, Teyana Taylor and Big Sean.
