Since New York City is home to millions of Jews, and it makes a simple rhyme, it was only a matter of time before someone parodied Jay-Z and Alicia Keys‘ Big Apple-loving anthem “Empire State Of Mind” with something like “Jew York.”
This parody comes from the mind of a Brooklyn-based Jewish comedian who goes by the rapper name “Goldy Lox” — real name Stacy. We really love this video because of the multi-colored Juicy Couture velour jumpsuits and it’s unapologetically off-key chorus. Plus, Stacy is a good friend of ours and, although the Mercedes’ license plate is from New Jersey, I can attest that she is in fact from New York.
