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.

@Howie Mandel guy,

Enough already. It is obvious you are one person posting under several names. You made your point (even though I disagree with you), now move on and quit spamming.

Love you and your music, Matisyahu, but please do something about the hair for crying out loud. You're only 31 and you look 51.

By the way, who is Drake and what does he sing?

Matisyahu may be one of the greatest and most creative musical artists of all time. It is too bad there is so much hate on this board and in this world. His music speaks to everyone, not just Jews.
