Mack 10 Plays Santa, Teams With Ice Cube And Snoop

December 18 [7:55 EDT] -- In the spirit of the holiday season, rapper Mack 10 is doing his part to give back to the community that raised him.

The rapper will stage his second annual toy giveaway on December 20 in his hometown of Inglewood, California where he will personally hand out toys to local kids under the age of 12. In more music related pursuits, Mack 10 is following the success of his hit single "Backyard Boogie" with the second single form his "Based on a True Story" album, a track called "Only In California." A Paul Hunter-directed video for the song is already popping up on MTV with Ice Cube and Snoop Doggy Dogg turning in cameos.

Our colleagues in the MTV Radio Network report that the three rappers will also appear together on an upcoming episode of "Soul Train." The show, which has already been taped, features Mack 10 and company performing "Backyard Boogie" and "Only In California" and should hit the airwaves in January.
