Drake

Drake is half Black and half Jewish, and he tipped a yarmulke to his heritage in the video for "H.Y.F.R.," which featured him getting "re-bar-mitzvah-ed" as a commitment to Judaism. "I went to a predominately Jewish school growing up," Drake said in a 2010 interview with Peter Rosenberg. "I definitely had a bar mitzvah...I was in synagogue; I had my yarmulke on."
