Afroman - A Colt 45 Christmas (2008)

Afroman divides people, as most who don't appreciate his humor are unimpressed by his talent. I wouldn't call Afroman a talented MC, but he's certainly one of the funniest rappers to grace the mic. I would consider The Good Times to be a decent album, as he kills some tracks, and Palmdale and American Dream, among other songs, are actually thought provoking and dark. While there is some social commentary on A Colt 45 Christmas, such as Police Blow My Wad (parody of Feliz Navidad), it's a hilarious, but mostly unorganized album, which actually doesn't even include any rapping. Every song is a parody of a classic christmas song, including my favorites Let Her Blow, and Frosty. Frosty is important, as it has the best lyrics of the album, and perhaps the funniest lyrics of any hip-hop song (Frosty the snowman, had a dick of snow / He could only fuck a bitch if her pussy was real cold... Now its time for Frosty's dick to disappear (say what) / He'll say goodbye but don't you cry, he'll fuck you again next year.)

The beats are usually a bass version of the song, with a hip-hop drum beat, and Afroman singing over the.. Eh fuck that, you can't really analyze this album. It's just a great way to add a little humor to your Christmas.

Merry Christmas, or whatever the fuck you celebrate.

Chronic Tree, O Chronic Tree,
Wit' yo leaves so sticky green.
Chronic Tree, O Chronic Tree,
So hard to sell, I want you all for me.
