L’Chayim, Motherf***er

Thanks to Jewcy for a heads up on this video, “analyzing” the following Jewish lyrics in Jay-Z’s latest song Roc Boys:

Rich niggas, black bar-mitzvahs, Mazel Tov its a celebration bitches,

L’Chayim i wish for you a hundred years of success but it’s my time

Cheers, toast to crime number one d-boy dahm he could rhyme.

I don’t get it. I know I’m white, but still. It’s not like I can’t understand what he’s saying. But what the hell does it mean?

Sorry, what the hell does it mean, bitches?
