"The Beat's" 12 days of X-Mas: Outkast "Player's Ball"

We're starting a new tradition here @ The Beat: The 12 Days of X-Mas. Part Christmas Countdown, part best of Christmas jams, all leading up to the redeemer's big day.

Hard to believe, but 'Kast's first single, "Player's Ball" was originally a Christmas song, released on the holiday album "A LaFace Family Christmas." The song has plenty of holiday references, but it's also a hustler's lament: it's Chrstmas time, snowing, and the d-boys are still serving the fiends. A cold world, indeed.

Happy Holidays y'all!
