Performing under his Hebrew name—which means “Gift of God”—Matisyahu has released a string of successful albums in the past decade. Six albums, including last year's Spark Seeker, have topped Billboard magazine’s reggae chart. The MC spices up classic reggae with elements of rock and hip-hop, layering his genre-blending base with motivating, relevant lyrics that reflect his upbringing in a Reconstructionist Jewish household.
