Jewish American reggae vocalist, beatboxer, and alternative rock musician, Matisyahu is pretty awesome.

While his “One Day” and “King Without A Crown” tracks have achieved critically acclaimed success, he’s currently enjoying his latest Undercurrent album, released in May.

So with the stage name being Matisyahu, ‘ya gotta wonder: what does one call him for short?

“People call me Matis unless I’m with my kids, then they call me Matis and the Yahus M is cool too, though that sounds nice,” Matisyahu told me on Scoop B Radio.

His stage name may be one thing, but his birth name is Matthew Paul Miller. “There are actually a lot of rappers with the initials, M.M.,’” he said.

“I’m Matthew Miller, Eminem is Marshall Mathers, there’s a lot of us! Next time you hear a white rapper, check out his initials because there’s a lot of M.M.”
