Nimsins - East Africa (Prod. VERSÂAM)



Even though this is the first official DNA Video Premier with Nimsins, Nims has been part of the DNA of DNA for years. Nimsins was put on our radar in 2017 at a Lo-Fiction (Nimsins early Hip Hop crew) art show/performance in Downtown Oakland. This was one of the first times I'd came in contact with an Oakland based crew that gave me that Hieroglyphics/Indi energy that'd been lacking. Nimsons comes from East Oakland where the root of all of his art stems and reflects from.

As a two-year-old in 1997, he was shot by a stray bullet that would leave him with only one fully functional kidney. Nimsins has dedicated his life towards arts and uplifting his community as an after school educator with non-profits in his neighborhood. Learn more about Nimsins and the song/video "East Africa".
