Matisyahu - Has Anyone Heard His Music?

Mon Mar 20, 2006 10:52 am

My friend introduced me to his new cd, Youth, and I can't stop listening to it, especially the last track, King without a Crown. Just wondering if anyone else has heard/seen him.

Not only have I heard his stuff, I've seen him in concert, met with him afterwards, and I have an autographed CD. I'm a big fan.

King Without a Crown is a good song, and Matisyahu is fairly unique because he is Jewish. I can't really name that many other Jews who sing reggae.
Holy sh*ts and burritos.

He has some good songs. I went to his concert in Minneapolis and was really disappointed and bored. He turned all his songs into 20 minutes of "oooohhh maaa maa maaa maa yoo yo yo yo." Apparently I wasn't the only one, the NY Times also agreed!

It is interesting but I see the novelty of a Conservative (is he Orthodox or Hasidic?) Jewish reggae rapper wearing off in the near future. He does own the music niche he is in though. How soon until we see "Mitch Cumstein and the Oy Vey Posse" comign to a town near you? That's when you know the 15 minutes are up.

That said, I find his music to be good but I couldn't listen to it day in and day out.

Not only have I heard of him, I narraly missed a chance to see him on Saturday night. As for King Without A Crown, it's #7, #13, #27 and #28 on the Modern Rock, Hot Digital Songs, Pop 100 and Hot 100 Billboard charts. The Youth album is #1 on the digital download chart.

Also, try the song "Shirat Hasticker" or "The Sticker Song" by Hadag Nachash or "Dogfish". That's where the motto in my signature came from.
