Hip-Hop Christmas by Kenn Nesbitt

The North Pole has a DJ.
His name is M.C. Kringle.
He loves to spin a record or
to sing a Christmas jingle.

He’ll b-boyb-boy to breakdance; an athletic style of street dance on the dance floor
to disco, rap, and rock.
He’ll beatboxbeatbox to make drum sounds with the mouth and voice on the microphone,
then stop and pop and lockpop and lock popping and locking are styles of street dancing.

He likes to do the Robot.
He loves to rap a rhyme.
The elves and reindeer always watch
and stomp their feet in time.

They’ll wiggle to the rhythm.
You’ll sometimes see them clapping.
You see, his helpers make the gifts
but Santa does the rapping.
