Hasidic HipHop Reggae




"Chop Em Down"
"Father In The Forest"
Video with history and live footage
There are so many Reggae artists who praise jah and preach about their love of about the ganja. Matthew Miller AKA Matisyahu has a different message:

"Me no want no sinsemilla.
That would only bring me down
Burn away my brain no way my brain is to compound
Torah food for my brain let it rain till I drown
Thunder!
Let the blessings come down"

Matisyahu was raised by Dead-heads and later became a dread locked Phish tour kid, however he wanted something different out of life. He truly found himself when he moved to Israel and he spent his time, praying, exploring, and dancing in Jerusalem. In every nook he encountered, his dormant Jewish identity stirred into consciousness. When he returned he studied up on reggae and hip-hop. He attended a weekly open-mic where he rapped, sang, beat-boxed, and did almost anything he could to stay creatively charged. It was then that he started to develop the unique reggae-hip hop sound for which he would one day become known. I was turned on to Matisyahu when I was forwarded THIS VIDEO with some really nice beatboxing, singing, and an interview from the Jimmy Kimmel Show.

Haha.
The video was just sent to me, too. I loved it and was all excited to blog it to high hell.
Sure enough, you'd hit it first.
I really want the song he performed in mp3. That shit is solid.

I feel like his novelty masks his talent. Like it'd be funny and shit if he rapped about jewish shit. But he doesn't, so he's not funny.
He's serious about his art, but people aren't allowed to be serious about him, because shit.. he's a hasidic jew.
Ah well. Good shit.
