Honest Question September 10, 2013, 00:24:51

Would anyone pay to see or have heard of Matisyahu if he didn’t play up being Jewish and wear Hacidic garb? If he was the same phish dready of the 90s rapping over a variety of Bob Marley instrumentals would he simply just be a guy on 2ci rubbing lotion on his nipples at Camp Bisco?

It seems to me that he is coming less ish in jewish (no beard or hat or yamaka). When I saw him perform he was preaching or lecturing in between songs. That was a big turn off for me. I’m not in Yeshiva buddy! He should just stick to his music! Do it subliminily(don’t knw if i spelled it correct). Rob M. is a superstar though!! Happy Jew Year!!

I saw the last tour and couldn’t believe how “main stream” he is trying to be. Wearing an 80s jean jacket circa 1984 wham tour. One positive is that the dirty heads opened and were 10x better than him. Great band if you like good vibes.

Yea this dude is a truly hateable sucker. You kids heard Justin Timberlake’s new shit? Way better boy band stuff than this stupid new school phish kid wannabe. When the trend was dreads he was on it. Now bad ’80s crap fasion is “hot” as they would put it in Hollywood and hes got the costume straight again. Phish tour was cooler before EVERYONE had to have dreads anyway. He shud go peddle this trash on jambase they suck ‘roo for points in “the industry”
