PREMIERE: Nissim Ft. Simon Benzaquen "Sores"

AllHipHop Staff

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.
