Will the best Jewish rapper please put on their yarmulke?

Rap newcomer Mac Miller playfully tweeted to his fellow Jewish rapper Drake about being the best Jewish rapper. Mac Miller, who is the self-proclaimed “coolest Jewish rapper,” always talks about being Jewish.

Rapper Drake who is half-Jewish had a bar mitzvah, just like his Jewish homie Mac Miller and even performs at bar mitzvah’s from time to time.
