Christmas in Harlem Vol. 1: Flirting 101

Tuesday, 25 December

HO HO HO, MERRY YEEZMAS!!! Chris and Travis have decided to start a new tradition: Each year they will break down small chunks of one of the greatest holiday songs ever recorded, Christmas in Harlem. To kick things off, we discuss Teyana's inviting intro, the song's crazy array of samples, and Kanye serving up some hot chocolate.

If you'd like to support the show, please rate us on iTunes, or help us out on Patreon.

You can buy The Yeezus Book—a scholarly, visual-heavy coffee table book that breaks down Yeezus in its entirety, from the album's narrative to the production to the tour.

Check out our merchandise line.

Follow us on Twitter if you also like to constantly talk about how awesome Kanye is (we'll undoubtedly respond to you).

And please, as always, stay loopy.
