There are stranger occurrences, but none quite like the treat of Rick Ross‘ upcoming The Black Bar Mitzvah mixtape cover. Hey, he’s made reference to being the “only fat n—- in a sauna with Jews,” and maybe he was inspired by Drake‘s bar mitzvah themed “HYFR” video, which in turn led to Ross’ head protruding from the Star of David. But since it’s a “black” bar mitzvah celebration, in Rozay’s mind this equates to flashiness. The fox fur draped across his shoulder, the blinged out shades, the gold pinky ring, these are all signs of success for a crop of rappers like Ross who grew up with nearly nothing. Leave it to Ricky to put a hood tale spin on God’s “chosen people” like only a boss could.
In addition to his fetish with all things Jewish, Ross is still promoting Maybach Music Group’s Self Made Vol. 2 with the video to “Bury Me A G.” A funeral procession is to be expected when the message of the song is Ross’ desire to eternally rest next to his dawgs. “If I die tonight I pray I get buried in clean drawers,” Ross raps. Unfortunately, the pouring out of Ciroc, the long hearses, a crew of homies attending the graveyard is far too similar to the actual funerals of misguided youth gone too soon. T.I. makes a cameo rapping about being buried next to his daughter and best friend. The video, directed by DRE Films and Jon J, is what’s to be expected, but it begs the question: Hasn’t hip-hop learned anything from celebrating, nearly glorifying death?
