I love the idea of a hasidic Jew rapping away, but at the end of the day he just sounds a bit like Pato Banton, no?
boring record. got a promo hanging round here if anyone wants to swap something for it. his mega zionist schtik is slightly offputting too.
the single...'Youth', or something?
It's abolsutely bloody awful. If you're going to have a gimmick, don't forget the tunes kids!
but have heard nothing but bad things.
Jamiroquai comparisons etc
total gimmick tho. sounds like sublime to me...
wank...he played scala and its like reggae music (which i decided i loathed this night) but for people too scared to go to a proper reggae gig. People either find it amusing that he's jewish or go because they are jewish and like, thats what they should do.
Someone waited all that time for 10p.
I didn't have high hopes for it when I typed it.
a "novelty" act for being Jewish.
Almost offensive, in fact.
i wouldnt have thought that if i didn't see the audience. just because he was jewish it doesn't mean that there should be only jewish people there. Also, because such a big deal has been made of it in his promotional things etc does suggest it.
so very much has been made of the hassidic jewish reggae angle (because it's a brilliant idea to get people to write about you) whilst musically it's fairly average white-boy reggae.
