Jewish rappers Matisyahu and Shyne band together to celebrate the “Miracle” of Hanukkah. The former Bad Boy adds a verse to the reggae star’s single about the Festival of Lights, which appears on his Miracle EP.
“I recorded this aiming to make a celebratory, feel-good song that still gets across the depth of Judaism rather than the typical watered down Jewish humor about matzah balls and Chanukah Harry,” said Matisyahu. “I’m trying to make the Jewish kids out there proud.”
The two, who struck up a friendship over their Jewish faith, have recorded other collaborations together. “I’d say he was someone that I’d be there for anything he needs, and he has expressed the same for me,” Shyne told The Jewish Chronicle.
