Nissim is a recording artist/producer. He made his first impression nationally in 2008 as D.Black, on producer Jake One’s Album, White Van Music, with the song “God Like”. While his earlier recordings were filled with tales of guns, drugs and violence, it was in 2009 with the release of “Ali’ Yah” that he quickly grabbed eardrums. The album received many accolades, such as landing the #12 spot on Amazon’s “Outstanding Albums You Might Have Missed” list. It entered the CMJ Hip Hop Charts at #16, peaked at #4 for five weeks, and remained in the top 20 for nine weeks. The album’s first music video “Yesterday” made its debut on XXL.com and shortly thereafter entered rotation on multiple MTV networks. He performed at some of the countries most esteemed music festivals including: CMJ, SXSW, Capitol Hill Block Party, and Bumbershoot. He has shared the stage with NaS, Mos Def, Macklemore, Freeway, Rhymefest, Boot Camp Click and Bun B just to name a few. As D.Black, he teetered on the verge of becoming a household name. However, he felt that something was missing in his life, and the man who would become Nissim, soon found himself in the midst of a deep spiritual crisis.
After a two year hiatus and converting to Orthodox Judaism, Nissim dropped his former moniker, adopted a new name and has begun a new journey, in his own words he seeks “To make music that inspires and elevates this world to a world of spirituality and divine purpose.”
