One of the more shocking Jewish song ripoffs

Every once in a while I hear a song and a light bulb goes on in my head that compares it to a Jewish song I had heard. It’s always interesting to note where the songs come from, the most shocking having been Mordechai Ben Davids Yidden that was taken from a 70s German disco song.

I was listening to A Tribe Called Quest the other day and the Infamous Date Rape song came on and I was floored. It brought me back to tenth grade in yeshiva when Black Hattitude was all the rage. Black Hattitude was a yeshivish rap band that has since disbanded and who’s members aren’t very proud of their one and only album.

On that album was a song called Shidduch Date and it is a yeshivish version of the Infamous Date Rape song by A Tribe Called Quest. The song sounds exactly like the non-Jewish version, but is all the more shocking because of where it came from.  You can listen to the song here.
