Nissim’s story is a remarkable one. He grew up in Seattle and was selling drugs by age 12.
He eventually converted to Chasidic Judaism and moved with his family to Israel.
Black’s lyrics reflect his short but packed life story. “I was able to have a life of redemption, I was able to overcome. We all have times when we feel we’re stuck, we’re pulled down by our environment, we get left with feeling ‘we can’t’. But if you don’t give up, ‘you can’. You’re too good to fail. That’s the message I want to reveal.”https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/feb/25/nissim-baruch-black-rapper-swaps-bling-jewish-redemption
