Imprisoned Rapper who keeps Shabbat–Priceless

Jamaal Barrow, or Shyne, as he’s known professionally, is three years into a ten year sentence but that hasn’t stopped him from signing a multi-million dollar record contract with Def Jam Records, or keeping Shabbat.

The rapper, a former protege of Sean “not a Jew” Combs, is apparently now observing Shabbat from behind bars, in what he says is a nod to his great-grandmother, an Ethiopian Jew.

Welcome to the Jewish Bandwagon, hop on.

His album “Zaidye Godfather Buried Alive” is due in stores Tuesday.
