*The song has barely been out a week and already, Rolling Stone has named Kanye West’s single “Christmas in Harlem” one of the greatest rock and roll songs ever for the holiday.
Although the rapper hails from Chicago and not New York, Kanye apparently got a credibility pass because he hooked up with Cam’ron, Vado, Teyana Taylor and Jim Jones for the project.
“That’s what made it even better,” said Taylor, who sings the chorus on the song. “He put Harlem artists on it.”
They put the uptown stamp on the song by plugging the shopping on 125th St. and the popular Harlem burger joint, Jimbo’s.
