Rick Ross may not be Jewish, but he’s seems to know something about opulent bar miztvahs.
The blockbuster Miami rapper released a free new mixtape last night called “Black Bar Mitzvah,” an 18-track album featuring contributions from Drake, Pharrell and others. Ross is pictured on the cover inside a gold Star of David.
“Black bar mitzvah. Black Hebrews. All my Jewish partners. All my business endeavors. Open your minds!” he chants, nonsensically, over the album’s intro track. “We get more money. We owners now.”
Ross boasts that he’s in the fiscal company of Vegas magnates Steven Wynn (whose first name he gets wrong) and the Maloof family.
“My boat was twelve million,” he says.
The album invokes an exceptionally extravagant bar mitzvah, with a twist. In an interlude track, Hot 97 radio host Peter Rosenberg (son of MJJ) plays a rabbi welcoming guests.
