Matisyahu’s Jewish floetry prevails

Matisyahu’s Jewish floetry prevails

At first glance, it would seem as though Matisyahu is a huge practical joke put out to see if people will really pay attention to a notion as bogus as a Jewish rapper. But surprisingly, orthodox Jewish rapper Matisyahu, real name Matthew Miller, seems to have found a shtick that, well, sticks.

Matisyahu’s heavily reggae-influenced beats serve as an unlikely but fitting backdrop to his raps about his faith. In fact, Live At Stubb’s could be a religious album, with the majority of the lyrics covering different aspects of his spiritual journey to Judaism.
