With Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday all now firmly behind us, the all-clear has officially been given for people to start singing Christmas songs and assembling their holiday playlists. While Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” and The Temptations’ “Silent Night” are certainly going to get some rotation, Milwaukee rapper Gerald Walker is hoping you’ll include a few off his tracks in your holiday rotation as well, and he’s assembled some of his best Christmas cuts in The Gerald Walker Christmas Collection: Vol. I.
Essentially a “greatest hits” of some of Walker’s best releases over the years – including some from last year’s It’s Christmastime Again, Gerald Walker – with a few remakes thrown in as well, The Gerald Walker Christmas Collection: Volume I features production from the likes of RMB Justize, SLOT-A, Chemist, and Kuddie Fresh. There’s something for every kind of listener on Christmas Collection: Volume I, whether it’s the reimagined interaction of the angel Mary and Gabriel on “Go Gabriel (The Annunciation)”; the very smooth “Christmas Everyday,” featuring a nice saxophone from Thurston Mcgill; or the slow jam-ish “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” which is definitely ideal road trip music if you’re traveling to visit family members elsewhere for the holiday.
You can stream Gerald Walker’s The Gerald Walker Christmas Collection: Volume I below; and if you enjoy it, by all means, support the Believer That Never Dies himself by copping it off iTunes.
