"Adapt" is a song about the simple fact that for something to live on, it must adapt. The same goes for the music industry. An artist can always rise, but to stay afloat, they must always evolve with the market. Such is the thin line between doing what you believe in and what expectations that may come with the endless tides.

While many of today's hip hop artists engage topics like sex, violence and wealth, Nissim (formerly D.Black) has let his faith guide his music down a different path. First introduced to the world in 2008 with his song "God Like," he made waves in the industry with his 2009 album "All 'Yah," found himself with a video in MTV rotation, and shared the stage with some of hip hop's biggest names at festivals like CMJ, SXSW and Capitol Hill Block Party. But even amidst his burgeoning commercial success, a feeling of emptiness compelled him to walk away from music, convert to Orthodox Judaism and delve deeply into the religious teachings of the Torah. Now, hes back, as Nissim and today, he has released the first single, "Unbelievable," from his forthcoming mixtape, "Miracle Music," which will drop May 15th for free and will be followed by the release of his new self titled album on July 16th.
