Back in 2010, Aubrey “Drake” Graham had this to say to Heeb writer Amos Barshad:
“I went to a Jewish school, where nobody understood what it was like to be black and Jewish,” he says. “When kids are young it’s hard for them to understand the make-up of religion and race.”
With the release of his new music video “HYFR” last weekend, in which the rapper celebrates a bottle-poppin’ re-Bar Mitzvah, I thought I’d go on Twitter and see how well understood he is today as a prominent black Jew.
Drake is not black enough for me.. But eminem is :P
