Welsh Hip-Hoppers CODEWALKERS Reveal Father Xmas’ Real Job – ‘SANTA IS A PIMP’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

16 December 2022

Who: Hip-hop act from Cardiff, Wales fronted by Nigerian powerhouse Seun Babatola
and backed up by four funky Welshmen are a vibrant fusion of cultures, ideas and musical styles. They combine rock, rap and reggae and deal with serious issues lyrically – gender, violence and societal expectations – but their music will always make you move.

New single: SANTA IS A PIMP

“Coupling their unique, upbeat fusion of genres with vocalist Seun Babatola’s trademark probing lyrics, ‘Santa is a Pimp’ is a fun alternative take on Christmas and where our presents come from. The track takes the perspective of a disgruntled elf who, fed up with poor working conditions, conspires with a disillusioned kid to blow up Santa’s workshop.”

TUTV: Finally we know what Santa‘s job really is, thanks to Codewalkers who just dropped the funniest and catchiest original Xmas song of 2022. Think Fun Lovin’ Criminals on dope (which they were on all the time). This trippy ditty will make you giddy. Shake your booty and sing all along around the Xmas tree.

Santa is a pimp and he getting higher.
smoking up in his empire.
Rudolph in a bimma, Beanie man zimma
Santa is a pimp like iceberg slimma
We better shift when he get here,
Everybody drift when he get here.
Supplier, conspire.
Santa is a pimp but his shop’s on fire

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…


Who: Cardiff-based brothers Ben Dabson (producer) and Dafydd Dabson (guitarist)
have been making noise together since before they could talk. They formed the band ‘Codewalkers‘ in 2016 when they recruited vocalist Seun Babatola to provide a message to their music. The trio were joined in 2018 by bassist Chay Lockyer and drummer Aled Lloyd

Pick: ROADMAN – newest single “based on the feelings of inadequacy we all have as we start off in our journey into independence, some later than others” – officially out 31st August

Score: After a big brass intro you’ll get a waterfall of rap ‘n’ roll. Expect a non-stop ardent flow of rhymes, lots of bass resonance and a gluey chorus that sticks immediately. You are who you are is the message. Damn right. Press play and make some moves, folks…
