Jewish Rap

I have seen information on Jewish artist Matisyahu on 2 different blogs that I read and I had to finally check it out. I first saw this on Yonah Wolf’s Confessions of an Orothodox Dad and I became curious. I didn’t actually do anything until I saw it on Ethos. So I cruised over to Matisyahu’s homepage and I have to say that I liked what I heard. I watched the new Youth video and it was positive and of good musical quality.
And here is the cd

Now you must remember I am a conservative that likes good wholesome rap and that is in small quantity. I also will be on the lookout for this and other artists being put out by JDub Records. I love this description of the type of artists they are looking to sign:

JDub is always looking for new artists and new music. Whether you are religious or secular, Jewish or non, if you consider your music to be Jewish or Jewishly influenced, we want to hear it!

I am sure that I have confused some of the readers who are out there and don’t know me personally. I will explain my Jewish fascination in a later post. But, I do believe the Church on whole might want to get behind music like this. It isn’t Christian but it is based on our core values(that is where we got them;). This music overall promotes a positive message and movement.

My last word…It isn’t TobyMac but it is pretty good.

PS. For more good rap/hiphop check out , it is a favorite in the NerdFamily!
