Here’s a message and video link from Y-Love, the self-described Hiphop activist:
I wanted to give you a heads up on a breakthrough Jewish music video which hit YouTube last night. DJ Handler and Shemspeed.com arranged a musical mashup in front of 1,200 fans at Irving Plaza last night never before seen – the Idan Raichel Project with special guests, Matisyahu and Y-Love.
What is Shemspeed? Mordy Shinefield, the Forward’s music columnist, explains. Here’s the Web site’s account of the big night:
Idan Raichel and dj handler are all set to perform at Irving Plaza when Shemspeed’s good friends Matisyahu and Y-Love let us know they are coming through. We suggest that all of them do a song together. Everyone is psyched and the second they hit the stage it is like a bomb of excitement went off with the sold out thousand+ crowd! Here is what went down!
