DMX Barks At God, Rihanna Gets Nasty On Santa Claus, Charles Barkley Raps “N***s In Paris”?

Maintaining Monday. It’s a day where we’re all trying to maintain our sanity after plenty of Thanksgiving vacation relaxing, so why not start things off with DMX getting into a conversation with God? Speaking of iconic figures, did Rihanna get really freaky with the one and only Santa Claus? If that’s hard to believe, then watching Charles Barkley rapping to “N*ggas In Paris” is just craziness. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. The Holy X<

Is DMX getting himself out of trouble and back to his religious roots? It might look that way after having a brief conversation with the Man Upstairs in a new song. It looks like X has a lot to get off of his chest and with some help courtesy of Dame Grease, that’s going down. XXL Mag is on it:

DMX has been in trouble with the law a lot recently, but he’s finally back in the studio. A video taken on Thanksgiving eve in producer Dame Grease’s studio shows the Yonkers MC working on a new song, titled “Never Give Up.” According to X’s publicist, it will be a gospel song, similar to “Lord Give Me A Sign,” a single released off his 2006 album, Year Of The Dog…Again. No word yet on where this song will appear, but, based on comments made by Swizz Beats recently, it seems as though X is working on a new album. (XXL Mag)

Is DMX still going to be able to win over the younger audiences? He hasn’t done much to stay relevant in the hip-hop community other than getting arrested and having his run-ins with the law. Is it too little too late for X? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. RiRi Grinding On Santa Claus

Is Rihanna is the biggest freak in the music industry? You might think so if you followed her on Instagram. While we wait for new music from Rih-Rih, it looks like she’s having too much fun with her spare time. RumorFix has her latest antic:

Rihanna is definitely going on Santa’s naughty list this Christmas.
The singer took to her Instagram on Saturday to debut a shot of her straddling Santa Claus’ poor dear face.

The raunchy singer captioned the flick, ’We tried to convince Santa that being a naughty girl isn’t so bad after all!!….making the list or nah?’
Luckily, RiRi wasn’t getting frisky with a real Santa–it was just a life sized doll! (RumorFix)

Is Rihanna getting too old for these games? Is it still cute and sexy or are people started to get bored with this stuff? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Good Luck, Chuck

Is Charles Barkley good luck? He might not have won an NBA championship, but he appeared to have some good luck over the weekend when he enjoyed shots and sang songs like “N*ggas In Paris” before for Auburn versus Alabama game. Black Sports Online is on it:

If you had a vision of what Charles Barkley would look like rapping “N**** in Paris” it would probably look like this (language is NSFW). Barkley was in Auburn for the Iron Bowl and maybe him buying shots for everyone Friday Night was good luck? War Eagle. (Black Sports Online)

It’s good to see even though Charles Barkely might be old school, he has an idea of what’s relevant in the hip-hop world. The biggest question is if this is going to be a trend? Bring Barkley to your team’s rally parties in hopes of winning? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
