Matisyahu

i dont know how many of you guys have heard of Matisyahu but after seeing him LIVE during spring break...its worth telling about. Matis is a Jewish Reggae/Rap artist with a very positive vibe. Im not jewish but the music has a inspirational tone to it for anyone. Ive been hooked on him for the past 4-5 weeks now so i highly suggest you try him out.

Live at Stubbs - imo and most peoples opinion the best album so far from him.

Youth - his newly released studio album...very good but i prefer him live.

you might have heard a single from him on the radio called King Without A Crown.


Anyways...check him out.

Re: Matisyahu

I have actually seen him on TV before, dude I gotta admit, I dig it.... I also walked by his CD the other night while checking something out at BestBuy... it looked alright, might have to pick it up... Anyone know where I can listen to a couple more demo songs?

Re: Matisyahu

As a resident jew, I like to say that I do enjoy busting out the rhymes via matisyahu. He is quite good. The strange thing though is that hearing the melodies he uses and the way he sings reminds me of going to religious services.

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.

his website has short clips of songs off the new album as well as full music video for king without a crown and youth. other than that the Torrent for his albums is easily available...if you do download it and like it make sure to at least buy one of the albums....hes still new and struggling. its a hard genre to make popular.

infact when i saw him it was at Nokia Live in Grand Prairie, TX. it seats like a thousand or so and when asked for the lights to come on to see the crowd...he was a tad overwhelmed...haha. most of his concerts are only a few hundred people.

Re: Matisyahu

LOVE Matisyahu. I'm the furthest from Jewish (or any religion for that matter) that one could be, but this guy can rhyme.

Gonna see him at Coachella. Can't wait.
