Matisyahu's Hanukkah "Miracle"
Jewish rapper Matisyahu is known for his eclectic blend of tradition and modern hip-hop. His beats are infectious and his music usually has a greater message embedded in it than just another hip-hop rhyme. In this video for the song "Miracle" Matisyahu has created what he hopes is the new Hannukah anthem.
Matisyahu says, "There are so many Christmas songs out there. I wanted to give the Jewish kids something to be proud of. We've got Adam Sandler's song, which is hilarious, but I wanted to try to get across some of the depth and spirituality inherent in the holiday in a fun, celebratory song. My boy Kojak was in town so at the last minute we went into the studio in the spirit of miracles and underdogs and this is what we came up with. Happy Hannukah!"
