Hey, YH fans: Matisyahu Needs a New Song Title!

This week's Studio Secrets: Watch a sneak peek acoustic performance by Matisyahu singing his latest new song, get hi-tech with YH and Chris Parnell, and see what happens when cast members from Lottery Ticket try their luck at really winning the lottery with scratch and play tickets… all at the YH Studio!

I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my favorite artists, Matisyahu, who I've been following since my college days when my friends and I would hit up all his shows in Austin, TX as his #1 fans. If you don't know who he is, Matisyahu is a Hasidic Jewish reggae musician/rapper best known for blending traditional Jewish themes with Reggae, rock and hip hop beat-boxing sounds. Matisyahu came by the studio to chat with us about his latest tour and album, Light, and how he balances his passion for religion with his passion for music. Check out an exclusive sneak peek of one of his brand new songs (amazing!) and, he told us he doesn't yet have a title for the song… that's how new it is… so, calling all YH fans: MATSIYAHU NEEDS YOUR HELP! Comment on this blog with some of your ideas on what to title this song, and Matisyahu may just pick your title!! How cool would that be? We know you guys out there are creative with words, so tell us your ideas and we'll be sure to pass along your responses – who's gonna get the winning title...

We hung out with funny guy Chris Parnell, a "Saturday Night Live" alum part of many unforgettable sketches and commercial parodies, including "The Cowbell Sketch," "The Centaur," "Wade Blasingame: Dog Attorney" and the unforgettable video short, "Lazy Sunday." Check out what he says about his upcoming show, "Big Lake," premiering on COMEDY CENTRAL, and how intrigued he is with our hi-tech Samsung Galaxy S phone! Watch our behind-the-scenes footage shot double time using 2 camera phones! Yes, we like to have fun.

We hung out with cast members Terry Crews, Brandon T. Jackson, and Bow Wow from the newly released film, Lottery Ticket. We had a fun surprise for them at the end of the interview… some actual scratch lottery tickets to try their luck with – only appropriate. Watch behind-the-scenes of what happens when they scratch their own tickets to see if they win some cash, and check out their reactions! Hey, either way it's always worth a shot…
