Born in Boston in the usual way, on December 11, 1981.

Takes up trumpet in grade school and gets exposed to rap by friend from the projects.

Brookline High School – days of rapping in the halls, rapping on the street, rapping at parties, talent shows, open mics… Rapping everywhere.

First show at the House of Blues in Cambridge, MA.

On to Clark University – major in French. French? Yes, French – and U.S. History, with a concentration in rap.

Performs on campus with Toots and the Maytals, Heather B, The Last Poets, and multiple solo gigs.

Graduation and a job in France – teaching English.

Hooks up with some Hasidic Jews (Chabad) and likes their way of life. Goodbye gangsta rap, hello hasidic rap – rap with a positive new message.

Personnally like the sampling of the Chabad niggunim (songs- which some find to holy for rap) and its about turning darkness into light, and the holy niggunim  will only help… with G-ds help and blessings!

Back to the States – odd jobs, gigs in Boston, New York, Florida, Texas.

Meets Matisyahu by “chance” in Boston. Raps for him on the street corner. “Hey,” he says, “Nosson, you’re good!”

More and more gigs. Performs with Matisyahu for the first time at Avalon, in Boston and then at South Paw in Brooklyn.

Goes Hollywood! Flown out to LA to play lead in “Song of David,” movie about – what else? A serious Jewish rapper.

Wins “Best Actor Award” at Boston International Film Festival.

Completes first EP – “The Return”. Joins Matisyahu for a 35 city tour of US and Canada.

Invited by Matisyahu to perform at his 8-show Festival of Light in NYC.

Starts work on full album.

This is a recent Big big up to @Matisyahu for the great interview and amazing shout at 13 min 48 sec!! You can check it out on your TV, just go to Shalom TV On Demand!!
The story is that in the end of days we are going to have to use the Chutspah that is rampant for holiness, lets see how Nosson put it himself in an exclusive interview …

Hasidic rapper Nosson Zand credits the kids at the Egmont Street Projects in Brookline for introducing him to hip-hop.

“It was a few blocks away from my house, but it felt like a whole different world. The whole urban, hip-hop lifestyle really opened my eyes to a new way of seeing things,” said Zand, who will headline the Purim celebration tonight at the Chabad of North Shore in Swampscott and then hit Rumor for the after-party.

But the Egmont kids also taught him rhyming skills and, more important, the confidence to get on stage.

“There’s a certain level of confidence that exists within the inner-city culture as well as blatantly and rampantly within hip-hop culture,” he told the Track. “It gave me an aggressive outlook on things which has served me well.”

Lets hear some more of his strong talent warming up the winter this year… as we look forward to his new album coming soon and pray one day to have the pleasure to host him and friends in the holy land … make a difference… hes got it<-
