Drake Embraces His Jewishness

Young Money star Drake's "HYFR" music video has a bar mitzvah theme, and the half-Jewish rapper says that he wants to celebrate his faith. Drizzy admits that he didn't have a proper bar mitzvah as a kid and wanted to throw himself a better one now that he can afford it.
"I'm really celebrating my religion," Drake said. "I'm proud, a proud young Jewish boy. So, when I had a bar mitzvah back in the day, my mom really didn't really have that much money. We kinda just did it in the basement of an Italian restaurant, which I guess is kinda like a faux pas. I told myself that if I ever got rich, I'd throw myself a re-bar mitzvah. That's the concept for the video. Myself, obviously, the CEO, the boss, Weezy and the Birdman."
