Matisyahu

Drake Can't Compare to My Jewiness

2/17/2011 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Orthodox hip hop star Matisyahu admits fellow Jew-rapper Drake has him beat in the M.C. department ... but when it comes to all things Kosher -- Matisyahu is the H.J.I.C.

The graying 31-year-old was out lunchin' at Real Food Daily in L.A. Tuesday -- where he enjoyed a fully-kosher, fully-vegan BACON sandwich.

Chew on that.

What a shocker. That someone cares about how jewish anyone is or what they eat.

Pretty frightening.

He's greying because he's got a zinc deficiency, most likely. Happens to a lot of vegans. Eat some meat, Matis.

"Jew-rapper"?
H.J.I.C.?? What's up with THAT, TMZ?

Aren't you guys the ones who suggested Pharrell was giving a Nazi salute (even though he threw his LEFT arm)? Yet you are the ones mocking Jewishness.
Matis' comments are intelligent. He gave Drake his props. Leave him alone, leave Drake alone and dammit, leave Pharrell alone.
