Hip-hop, rap and R&B star Drake is sure proud of his Jewish roots. And he’s a pretty good Jew too, at least according to him.

When a TMZ cameraman asked Drake “Who do you think’s a better Jew, you or [TMZ creator] Harvey Levin?,” the pop star responded, “I don’t know. I’m one of the best Jews to ever do it, ever.” Whatever that means.

Drake — nee Aubrey Drake Graham— was raised Jewish by his Canadian-Jewish mom, was Bar Mitzvahed and even went to Jewish Day School in Canada. Not your average rap star, huh?
