Hasidic Hip-Hop/Reggae: Matisyahu

I was watching some late night show a few days ago and there was a band performing.  I saw a guy in dreadlocks and a yamulka.  I said wow, an interesting combo.  I sat there and watched as Matisyahu performed.  I was pretty much blown away by their musical talent.  This guy is just amazing.  I just remembered now how great the group was and finally found out who they are.  Matisyahu is actually a band but at the same time the name of the main singer.  He’s a Jewish rapper.  Their most popular hit and the one that was performed on the show is entitled, “King Without a Crown.”  I found it on iTunes if you’d like to hear it.  It is very good.
