Shyne and Matisyahu Have Recorded Music Together, Are Best Friends

Jewish hip-hop's finest.

Here is an update on the status of the relationship between the two greatest Hasidic rappers in the world: After Matisyahu signed off on the legitimacy of Shyne's conversion earlier this year, the two have now, according to the Jewish Chronicle, recorded music together and will appear on upcoming releases from one another. They're also, like, best friends. Says Shyne (who, sorry, ladies, is currently celibate): "I'd say he was someone that I'd be there for anything he needs, and he has expressed the same for me." And the only question left is, is it not now practically Drake's religious duty to join these two in Jerusalem and form a Jewish hip-hop supergroup? [JC.com]
