Hip-Hop Hanukkah: The 25 Best Jewish References In Rap

10. Mos Def "The Rape Over" (2004)

Lyric: "Some tall Israeli is running this rap shit."
Album: The New Danger
Producer: Kanye West
Label: Rawkus/Geffen



Lyor Cohen has always been running this rap shit, even back in 1986 when he was just Russell Simmons' assistant. (Fun fact, stolen from Dan Charnas's book The Big Payback: DMC of Run-DMC called Lyor a "girallama," because he thought Lyor looked like a mashed-up giraffe and llama. And DMC was never heard from again.)
