Drake Cashes In On Bar Mitzah Performance That Kanye Turned Down


Mikey Fresh / May 9, 2011

One man’s rejected-performance fee is another man’s… payday?

It is for Toronto’s best known rap star Drake. This past weekend, the half-Jewish rapper earned a cool $250,000 for a bar mitzah performance in honor of former NBC executive Jeff Zucker’s son coming of age.

Originally, the young’n wanted Kanye for the special set but Ye earned a reported $1 million to rock at the private function. Dad found a more affordable, suitable substitute.

How could any kid be mad at that?
