Shyne Goes Off On Rick Ross Over "Black Bar Mitzvah" Mixtape
(AllHipHop News) Orthodox Jewish rapper Shyne is speaking out against a new mixtape that was recently released by Rick Ross, titled The Black Bar Mitzvah.
Rick Ross will release the mixtape today (October 8), which features guest appearances by artists like T.I., the Maybach Music Group roster and even Drake, who is Jewish himself.
"Black bartmitzva? These coppers fantasize about the things that i do daily like these coppers rap about the life I live really!" Shyne tweeted.
Shyne, born Jamal Barrow, changed his name to Moshe Levy, shortly after he converted to orthodox Judaism in late 2009.
The rapper, whose birth name was Jamal Barrow before he was released from jail for serving an 8-year prison sentence for a 1999 shooting involving Sean "Diddy" Combs and his then-girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez.
According to Shyne, his choice of religion drew criticism from the Hip-Hop industry, something he noted in his tweets criticizing Rick Ross's new Black Bar Mitzvah mixtape.
"First they criticize me for being a Jew, now they're favorite fake rapper is having a black bar mitzva? GTFOH" Shyne snapped.
Shyne labeled Rick Ross his "bastard child" and then linked to a YouTube interview featuring the Miami rapper talking about Shyne's influence on his career.
