All the mp3 blogs I read keep buzzing about this "new" form of rap out of the UK called "Grime." They act like it's some kind of legimitate new incarnation or next generation of hiphop, but all the mp3s I've heard just sound like british guys rapping with nutty dj work in the background. Is this just crunk for the brits or what's the deal?

Please tell me his name isn't Joseph Israel?

If so, you've answered a question that we've had here locally. This kid whose father owns a huge Mexican restaurant here in Fayetteville formed a reggae band. He and the band are all Zionists (sort of Jewish), and they're kind of a joke around town because they're a bunch of white kids from Arkansas who talk in patois and wear dreads. Anyway, Joseph (mainly due to having money from his father) has released an album out of Jamaica with Ziggy Marley's band and backup singers laying the tracks and him kind of yelling out stuff like "Jah!" and "Rasta!" in the background. We're all curious whether he's known nationally now due to this record or not.

No, it's Matis, or Matisyahu. He's been on Jimmy Kimmel. You can find out about him on www.hasidicreggae.com
