If you have 10 minutes to spare, check out Drake’s short film/video “Worst Behavior.”
It’s packed with shots of Memphis, f-bombs, and cameos from Drake’s dad Dennis Graham, Juicy J, Project Pat, and a very entertaining white guy dressed up like Drizzy’s OVO owl.
Jewish highlight: “I imported mine/Bar mitzvah money like my last name Mordecai/F***you bitch I’m Mordecai/My mom probably hear that and be mortified.”

Drake’s new album “Nothing Was the Same” was released yesterday, as was the video for the single “Hold On We’re Going Home.”
While this short musical film does not feature the Jewish Canadian rapper undergoing a religious rite of passage, it does take place in the very Jewy locale of Miami, where a gun-toting Drake rescues his kidnapped girlfriend. Not exactly shul, but we’ll take it.
