[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway) 93, Christmas Eve, let me paint the scene There’s no describing the joy Christmas Day can bring See these are just a few of my favorite things I’m talking brand toys that shoot laser beams A new bike and some nikes just to go on my feet Plus a phantom powered mic so I can flow on the beat I’ve been a good all year, did all of my chores I even took swept the whole house and mopped all of the floors All the stockings is hung by the chimney with care In hopes that jolly old Saint Nick is fittin' to be there I want a new boombox and an N64 And couple extra games just for when I get I bored Back in the day, we was poor but now look at these kids Coming down the stairs asking "where the cookies and shit" Six weeks before Christmas, sneak Peak at your gift So now you gotta act surprised when you're secretly pissed To keep up, as a parent, you gone need to be rich These kids spoiled nowadays, ain’t no need to pretend But you don’t wanna get singled out and labeled a grinch While Christmas Albums play on every turntable that spins So let's, take a moment just to pray for those Who don't have much, for them Christmas day is cold So when you get that new sweater go donate some clothes And play your favorite Christmas songs on the radio It's goes... [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] And yeah I got a couple things on my Christmas list A Lego set, and some games for Nintendo Switch But it ain't all about the gifts, it’s the feeling you get When you spending time with family and chilling with friends Now we all grown up and it's all for the kids But when you it's that time of year then it’s hard to resist At the Christmas markets in Berlin, drinking mulled wine Movie night, yeah you know we watching 'Home Alone' right? Can’t forget 'Christmas Story', and 'Christmas Vacation', Watching home movies in the attic like Chevy Chase did Hold up, I got some more stuff in the basement Neighbors compete, to see who got the best decorations Turkey's in the oven like we at the Belcher's house But if you see somebody struggling try to help 'em out Let's not forget about those who have gone without Spread the love that’s what Christmas time is all about

[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] It was the night before Christmas, just me and my spouse Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse We got our sweatpants on, we ain't leavin' the house And you gon' have to pay me homie, I'm not leavin' this couch Baby it's cold outside, we just sittin' by the fire While the little duns is playing in the snow outside Don't wanna go outside, we just binging 'Love is Blind' And old 'Star Trek' reruns that we've watched a dozen times I'm just trying to cozy up, not interested in staying up til 4AM drunk poppin' bottles in the club I might have an old-fashioned or an egg nog with some rum I might even try to get a VR headset just for fun But if you think I'm 'bout to leave the house you must be cray I'm staying home for Christmas, I don't care what they say So feel free to drop by, if you wanna pay a visit Heard some knockin' at the door, paus the Netflix, yo who is it? But when I got to the porch, there was nobody there Just some presents from the elves that they left by the stairs And yo I wish you were here, but it's my Christmas Staycation I'm not going anywhere so fire up the Playstation [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] 'Cause this year, all I want for Christmas Is to stay at home, no offense, don't get it twisted I wish that, we didn't live so far away But we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday 'Cause this year, all I want for Christmas Is to stay at home and just eat up all the Triscuits I wish that, we didn't have to go back to work Cancel all of my appointments until January 1st [Verse 2: Dillon] It's 'bout to be a silent night, that's right I'm catching up on my zzz's, I ain't catching a flight Despite all the season's greetings and the holiday cheer I'm home in my robe reading, trying to call it a year Pourin' a shot and beer, I steer clear fo the eggnog I ain't roasting chestnuts, just this hog leg dawg I got enough memories, ain't trying to make more Unless your coming to upgrade my Playstation 4 There's no family feast, I'm trying to eat some Chinese And stare at the TV screen until my eyes bleed In the past I bent over backwards to be a presence And didn't even leave with any presents I guess this year I'll sit here on the couch with my pajamas on And open all the boxes that I got myself on Amazon Christmas used to be the ish, but now I'm not a young buck And I gotta say is 'bah humbug' Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] 'Cause this year, all I want for Christmas Is to stay at home and just mind my own business Don't get it misconstrued, I don't mean to be a Scrooge I just wanna raid the fridge and eat up all the food 'Cause this year, only thing on my wishlist Is to stay at home, yeah that's all I want for Christmas I wish that, we didn't have to go back to work Cancel all of my appointments until January 1st [Verse 3: Amerigo Gazaway] I'm just chillin' at he crib, no really it's a vibe I wish we could stay at home like this for Christmas all the time 'Cause then I wouldn't have to drive, or get on a plane And you know traveling around this time of year is insane Crowded airports and stores, but no luggage to pack Almost done, just got a couple more presents to wrap But then I'm hittin' the sack, 9PM on Christmas Eve Left some cookies and some milk, out there sittin' by the tree Just in case he decides, to come and pay a visit Heard some rustling in the living room, wake up and say 'who is it?' Then I opened up the door, and guess who I saw? He said they call me St. Nick but just address me as 'Claus' And please forget what you saw, 'cause I was never here Grabbed the milk and cookies, and up the chimney he disappeared And I wish we were there, but it's my Christmas Staycation Watching all the classics, even the ones in claymation [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] 'Cause this year, all I want for Christmas Is to stay at home, no offense, don't get it twisted I wish that, we didn't live so far away But we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday 'Cause this year, all I want for Christmas Is to stay at home and just eat up all the Triscuits I wish that, we didn't have to go back to work Cancel all of my appointments until January 1st

[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] Three kings, better know as the three wise men We came from the east the land where the sun rises On camelback, laced in expensive furs Bearing gifts, of gold frankincense and myrrh For those who don’t know, we celebrated Christmas first One things for certain, it ain’t been the same since his birth People arguing over which events occurred Wars fought was over a scripture in a biblical verse Religious factions say never go against his word' But what they really mean is never go against the church The three Magi, it's Gaspar, the Guru of Time North Star the sky that we use as a guide [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] Three kings, throw your hands up and make noise When we show up to the party they part the way for us We came from the East, it's too late to change course And we're here to bring tidings of comfort and joy Three kings, everybody stand up and make noise When we show up to the party they part the way for us I know it's late, sorry you had to wait for us We here' to bring tidings of comfort and joy [Verse 2: Napoleon Da Legend] Prophetic visions, Balthasar brought with wisdom The gift of myrrh, Messiah came and shifts occurred There can be a stigma with the use of different words Christmas to you and it's meaning might be different from hers The three kings follow the Star of Bethlehem for the truth Some see the three kings as Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Cube When you believe in something, go seek and you will find it The solstice of Christmas, the blessings are in alignment iridescent lights in the sky, through arid deserts On a holy faithful journey to understanding the essence Of life itself on Earth with a sacred birth The faith of a higher power would shape the world [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] Three kings, throw your hands up and make noise When we show up to the party they part the way for us We came from the East, it's too late to change course And we're here to bring tidings of comfort and joy Three kings, everybody stand up and make noise When we show up to the party they part the way for us I know it's late, sorry you had to wait for us We here' to bring tidings of comfort and joy [Verse 3: Awon] Bringing the gifts of gold Travel to see the son born that the scripture holds As benevolent, cut from cloths that's so delicate The gold symbolizes the king of all elements The scrolls that most of you call the New Testament Has been translated by victors who show prejudice The spirit of the king still radiates in hearts The Covenant's Ark shine bright when times dark Bringing comfort and light, peace and love to the globe And when stability erodes, worlds will implode Born is the vessel of God, he is the hope That we all kneel to on the days we can't cope [Hook: Amerigo Gazaway] Three kings, throw your hands up and make noise When we show up to the party they part the way for us We came from the East, it's too late to change course And we're here to bring tidings of comfort and joy Three kings, everybody stand up and make noise When we show up to the party they part the way for us I know it's late, sorry you had to wait for us We here' to bring tidings of comfort and joy
10.
[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] Yo don’t mean to wake you up, but is the ghost of Christmas past My bad I didn’t mean to spook you homie just relax But I want to talk, 'cause I can see that you been mad At the world, and starting to affect they way you act 'Cause lately your perspective is that everything is rotten But what I’m about to show you is glimpse of days forgotten Let’s take it back to when you were just a little boy When the the room is filled with laughter in your heart was filled with joy And underneath the Christmas tree was all your favorite toys But then you grew up and you had dreams destroyed I know that life is hard, but you always have a choice There’s a lot of people out there who don’t even have a voice So this Christmas? Let’s be thankful for what we have Laugh, and make memories that are gonna last Here’s your stop, hit me If you need to catch a cab Signing off, here’s my card, it's the Ghost of Christmas past [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] Yo I don’t mean to interrupt, but it’s the ghost of Christmas present I didn’t mean to scare you but I’m here to teach a lesson See some people think that Christmas time is all about the presents But I’ma show you a just couple things you been forgetting And I know that for some folks, Christmas is a blessing But for others this time of year, Christmas is depressing People stressing, and I ain’t just talking bout Tiny Tim I’m talkin' 'bout the homeless shelter by where you live What happened, to just trying to help and give Seems like we forgot the meaning of Christmas and what it is If not do it for yourself, at least do it for the kids 'Cause the sound of their laughter is like music to the ears It’s a new year, So let try not regret it And all that negativity? Yo you just need to dead it I’m here, to send you this message I hope get it Signing off, truly yours, It’s the ghost of Christmas present [Verse 3: Amerigo Gazaway] I don’t mean to interrupt but it’s the ghost of Christmas future I’m sorry if I scared ya, yo I didn’t mean to spook ya But picture this, everybody gathered at your funeral Cousins, nieces, nephews and and all the people you know But as you look around? Nobody sheds a tear Because when you were alive, you were never really there We tried to call, we tried to show you that cared But you were always too busy, tried to stay out of your hair Yet we can’t forget, all the good times that we shared The the laughter, and all that good food that mom prepared Things could've been different if you’d been a little kinder Having Christmas parties but nobody was invited I know it’s in there somewhere if you look inside and find it But life is strange, I wish there was some way we could rewind it This is just a reminder, be kind, pay your producer Until we meet again it's the ghost of Christmas future
11.
[Verse 1: Amerigo Gazaway] Looking back in hindsight, it’s been a hell of a year We had a lot of highs and lows. but I’m just thankful we’re here To live to fight another day, each one is blessing So keep your head up and try not to crack under the pressure 'Cause they gon' try to tear you down every chance that they get And focus on the negative but yo we cannot forget It's time to take stock, of all the goals we’ve accomplished Let’s not dwell in the past, I suggest that we count our losses Move onwards and upwards and strive to do better I’m sorry I forgot to call, that's why I'm writing this letter My new years resolution? Be kinder to others Because we’re all going through it, we're just trying to recover And rest In peace, to all of those who didn’t make it Their presence was a gift and there’s no way we can replace them Gotta face it, death comes for all, we must embrace it But this New Year's let’s forget all our troubles and just get wasted [Verse 2: Amerigo Gazaway] It’s been another tough year but we still persevere A lot of trials and tribulations but I’m thankful we’re here To live to see another day, each second is precious I put it all on the the table, these are just some confessions I know I haven’t been exercising as much as I should Staying up late at night, drinking, up to no good Thinkin' if only I could, try to break these bad habits And mark myself safe from weapons of mass distraction Spend more time with family, and less time scrolling Less time watching dumpster fires and online trolling Go outside more, stretch, and get a breath of fresh air 'Cause when I look into the mirror all I see is gray hairs See we ain’t getting younger, I’m just keeping it real But never too late learn, or pick up a new skill Let’s make a toast, for everybody who still with us Now approaching ‘midnight!', better find out who you kissing

about

Following the success of his 2018 instrumental beat tape, "A Christmas Album," this time Gazaway flips the concept on its head by stepping up to the mic and collaborating with a stellar lineup of emcees including Dillon, Napoleon Da Legend and Awon.

"Another Christmas Album" is a festive tour throughout the holiday season, blending traditional Christmas music with contemporary beats, humor, lyricism, and a touch of nostalgia. Tracks like "Christmas Staycation (feat. Dillon)" playfully explore the humor and the allure of skipping out on family events in exchange for a cozy holiday at home, while "Wreck The Halls (feat. Napoleon Da Legend)" turns up the energy with a boom bap anthem for festive shopping sprees and fresh winter gear. The album as a whole weaves through various holiday experiences, blending storytelling, humor, and hip-hop to create a memorable and joyful holiday soundtrack.

"The holiday season encompasses so many different emotions - it can be a time of joy, laughter, peace, togetherness, solitude, self-reflection and so much more. With 'Another Christmas Album', I wanted to encapsulate some of those feelings on wax while paying tribute to some of my favorite Christmas memories, classic records, books, films, soundtracks and stories and more." - Amerigo Gazaway
