Kanye West's 'Yeezus' Gets a Must-Hear Holiday Makeover — VIDEO
It seems like Ye himself is getting into the holiday spirit. Well, it isn't exactly Kanye West who made his Yeezus album holiday themed, but I'm sure he'd be thrilled to hear that his sixth album is now Santa's dream come true. The comedy group Local Business Comedy has released an entirely new remixed album with songs that take all of Yeezus to the North Pole for a lesson in Ho Ho Ho. But just because the album is Christmas themed, that doesn't mean it's family friendly. The new album is called Kreezus, and is comprised of familiar beats with entirely new lyrics.
For example, Kanye's "New Slaves" is now "New Sleighs," "I'm In It," is now "I'm In It (The Chimney), and "Bound 2", is now "Wrapped 2," with "Ho Ho, Santa," instead of the terrifyingly catchy "Uh huh, baby," (even typing that felt wrong). The entire thing is extremely clever and makes me wish I would have thought of it, but that would mean I'd need to become way too familiar with Kanye's Yeezus.
But what would happen if I converted other songs off other Kanye albums into holiday themed songs? I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's not that I don't think Kanye West is a lyrical genius, it's just I think I might be more of a lyrical genius. Mr. Yeezy, for your consideration:

OK, maybe I wasn't as genius as Kanye. You can hear the real remixes below from Local Business Comedy's Soundcloud.
