Bishop Nehru emerged on the scene several years ago as one of the youngest rappers destined to reclaim the throne of NYC Hip-Hop. His swift wordplay, dense composition and penchant for rapping over jazzy, head-nodding beats quickly earned him “young Nas” comparisons. Fast forward to 2014, he was actually signed by Mass Appeal Records, the NYC label that Nas co-owns. That roster also includes Fashawn and Harlem representer, Dave East.
Soon after that, Nehru released an impressive collab EP with underground rap superhero MF Doom titled Nehruvian Doom. Since then, things have been pretty quiet on his end, but all that changes today. Nehru is 21 years now, and he’s gearing up to drop his new album Elevators: I & II on March 16th. The project is co-produced by the ridiculously prolific Kaytranada and the aforementioned DOOM. The first single ‘Rooftops” just dropped and it’s pure FLAMES. Check it out below and stay tuned for the album.
