Matisyahu to Preview New Material, Appear in New Movie

A look at Matisyahu’s acting debut

Matisyahu will preview material from his forthcoming album Spark Seeker during a special event at New York’s BB King Blues Club on Thursday, June 14. Organized by DJ Norie and Power 105.1, the event will also feature performances by Shaggy and Laza Morgan.

Written over the last two years while in Israel and Los Angeles, Spark Seeker finds Matisyahu moving away from his dub reggae roots into a more pop, dancehall direction. The album also features appearances by rapper SHYNE, who turned Hasidic last year, as well as several Israeli artists.

In related news, Matis will be star alongside Kyra Sedgewick in the Lionsgate film The Possession this August. Matis plays a Hasidic exorcist freeing a possession in a Dibbuk box. This marks the reggae jam star’s first official acting gig.

He kicked a woman photographer in the face during a concert. Not really babbling, just a statement.

Is that what happened? Because I was standing next to the woman who after she pushed her way through the crowd banging into everyone with her huge bag of equipment, stood right in front of the stage and continually used her flash
Eventually matis jumped off the stage and removed her flash from her camera
So yeah, stop babbling
