Matisyahu: Ultra-Orthodox Jew, Reggae Artist.

The story goes:

"I was 16, I looked like a hippie, I wasn't into Judaism. I was into music, reggae, Bob Marley, girls. My parents wanted me to travel. They signed me up for this three-month program and paid for it, and that's how I got to the Alexander Muss High School in Hod Hasharon."

So Matt Miller became Matisyahu Miller, the world's first and most successful ultra-Orthodox Jew reggae singer.

His lyrics?

"Me no want no sinsemilla.
That would only bring me down
Burn away my brain no way my brain is to compound
Elevated my soul you're a flying my sound
Like the sun of a sun ray burning up through a cloud
Torah food for my brain let it rain till I drown
Let the blessings come down."
