PREMIERE: Nissim Ft. Simon Benzaquen “Sores”

Seattle rapper Nissim, formerly known as D.Black, entitled “Sores.” The gripping and powerful song is perhaps the first of it’s kind, combining hip-hop and classical Jewish Cantorial (Hazinut) music, as it tells the story of first an African-America 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.

    […] While the track speaks very specifically of two particular historical struggles, Nissim hopes the message will be heard universally. “I think it’s relatable to all people,” Nissim continues,”[The] reason being that we all have personal slaveries and spiritual genocides to the soul and self, and we need the proper focus and strength to be able to move on and say ‘never let it happen again.’ ” He also hopes that the track will encourage more African-Americans and Jews to think critically about the similar persecutions both peoples’ have endured throughout history and allow them to find more common ground and unification. “I think the fact that I as an individual embody the struggle of both groups is very unique,” he says, “And it could be a platform for discussion in a world that seems to sometimes purposely forget about our past.”   Check out the AllHipHop premiere here: http://allhiphop.com/2013/09/12/premiere-nissim-ft-simon-benzaquen-sores […]
