Mp3 of the week, X-mas edition: Los Wunder Twins del Rap


DOWNLOAD: Los Wunder Twins del Rap, "Feast of Steven" (mp3)

Of the few holiday carols that haven't already been appropriated by R&B hitmakers, "Good King Wenceslaus" looms as the most implausible basis for a hip-hop anthem. Which makes it the perfect foil for Lowell's finest novelty-rap duo — and success is all the sweeter when LWTDR's D-Tension plays off his government name to throw off his own "Feast of Steven" (sic, for the benefit of all our copy-editing thugs). There's just one problem: D's broke, so, as he informs his comrades, "we're gonna have to do some shoplifting." What follows is comic gold, as jolly old Saint D-Tension slips in and out of stores, pants bulging with stolen goods, all the while spitting crisp 16-bar verses stocked with references to Yankee swaps, Christmas blunts, and eBay scams: "Pissing, puking hip-hop drunks/at the feast of Steven/lots of presents out tha trunk/merchandise of Stee-ee-vennnn!"
