Jewish Rapper
Jewish Rapper on Jimmy Kimbal live - Matisyahu is a Hasidic Jew from White Plains NY who is also a reggae artist/rapper, and very good.

This reminds me of when I was in Israel, the advice someone gave me when seeking an English speaker while traveling was to look for the nearest Hassidum, chances were they were from NYC. It also reminds me that while the image of the Hassidum might be very religious and slightly odd, the reality is that they are very religious to be sure, but they are also very much of the world.

I am tempted to pick up his album. Not too many Jewish rappers out there...
