Hanukkah Rap Battle

It's Dreidel Time, Bitch!

12/3/2011 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We got to thinkin' ... there are no real Hanukkah songs during the holidays, so a rapper who tried to crash the Jewish holiday with a good beat could score big.

Too Short (left) and Jim Jones (right) squared off Friday on TMZ Live, with their original tunes written just for us.

Listen to both, and you be the judge.

What is wrong with Jim Jones? He looks and acts like a drunk junkie. Half the time can't hold his eyes open, ya can hardly understand a thing he says, and he looks like he needs a good bath. He's just plain Nasty. That slow dope must be gettin to him. No wonder Lady Skank-nasty leads him around on a leash and rules his life. TRAINWRECK

Um, yes there are. What about the Little Dreidel song, Maoz Tzur, or The Hanukkah Song by Adam Sandler??? I'm not Jewish but apparently I know a little more than whoever wrote the first sentence of this story.

Dear TMZ- the greatest holiday song ever is.... THE HANUKKAH SONG by Adam Sandler. I mean seriously is everyone in your studio between the ages of 15-20. I mean really, really, really?!? oh and the h e double hockey sticks gives a flying f to the u to the ck about that drunk looking, coke sniffing, dbag Jim Jones? From the Vh1 show it looks like his woman could beat him down and he'd cry like a little biaotch....

Besides the obvious Dradle song, you have Adam Sandler's Hanukkah song as mentioned above, as well as the Hanukkah Harry theme (look it up on YouTube):

On Moische! On Herschel! On Schlomo!
It's Hanukkah Harry 8 nights a year!
On Moische! On Herschel! On Schlomo!
Means that Hanukkah Harry is here!
Delivering Toys to Jewish girls and Jewish boys
We dance the horah around the menorah
'Cuz Hanukkah Harry is Here!"
