22-year-old singer-songwriter Nige begins his journey “War in the Trenches

Today, 22-year-old singer-songwriter Nige begins his journey into stardom with his new video “War in the Trenches.” Hailing from Washington D.C., Nige gives an in-depth look at his everyday reality, where violence is rampant and dreams are broken. “There’s a war in the trenches, in the streets there’s a battle / I was born in the jungle, we’re just praying for survival,” Nige sings after his brief run-in with the cops. The video follows Nige alongside his brothers-in-arms, who are all dressed in black, keen to support him and his mission. As he seeks solace, he loses more close ones to drive-by shoot-outs and police brutality, leaving him as the lone light in his neighborhood.

“Growing up as a kid in the hood my pops always used to say, ‘be the light in the darkness around you.’ I always used to brush it off until I got older and really realized what he meant,” Nige reveals regarding the inspiration of “War in the Trenches.” “Making this song is me trying to do exactly that: ‘be the light’ in the darkness of all our lives.”

Nige’s rise began on social media where he went viral on TikTok for his pain-infused records, netting millions of views and likes. His forte for pain-infused records and poignant storytelling brings a reflective perspective to a life lived on an emotional edge. Though “War in the Trenches” has dark themes, at its core, it has subtle hints of optimism, signaling that the best is yet to come from the D.C. native.
