Today Seattle rapper Nissim, formerly known as D.Black, releases his self-titled album, his first full length work since converting to Orthodox Judaism and beginning his journey as the face of what could be considered a new genre of hip-hop music.

Earlier this year, the Bay Area-based rap duo Main Attrakionz partnered with Sacramento producer Tynethys – the chemistry between the three was quick and easy, and from those sessions came a full album, produced by Tynethys, announced with the release of a first single, the excellent “Kinfolk.”Then came an artist’s worst nightmare – the drive where all of the sessions were stored crashed, and the album was lost.
Rather than go back and attempt to re-record the songs that were lost, Squadda B, MondreM.A.N., and Tynethys set out, ambitiously, to record a completely new album and …

Today AllHipHop premiered the latest track from Seattle rapper Nissim, formerly known as D.Black, entitled “Sores.” The gripping and powerful song is perhaps the first of its kind, combining hip-hop and classical Jewish Cantorial (Hazinut) music, as it tells the story of first an African-American slave during the 1700s and later a German Jew in a concentration camp during the Holocaust. Nissim’s Orthodox faith continually informs his work, but perhaps never so explicitly as in this new track, where he draws on the parallels of two seemingly disparate peoples’ struggles, ultimately affirming the common humanity underlying both.
