Rapper Strizzo hopes you'll 'Jingle It' this Christmas




Season's greetings from Strizzo. The local rapper is part of the Jook City movement that also includes R&B singer Javon Black, rapper Tom G and producer Lil Kee.

So when Strizzo, a.k.a. Jamal Lyles, sat down to pen a holiday song, it was less about little drummer boys and dreidels made of clay and more about, well...

Dashing through the trees, and it's 400 degrees. In the 'hood we play, smokin' all the way.

The single, Jingle It, is a foot-stompin' remake of Jingle Bells featuring DJ Trans. Hear the whole heart-warming song in media player at right. The single will be available on iTunes and other digital music retailers Dec. 1, leaving you plenty of time to spread the holiday cheer, Jook City-style.
