Bishop Nehru seeped onto the scene last year with his Nehruvia mixtape. That project presented the (then) 16-year-old rapper from upstate New York as someone blessed with an endearingly slurry flow and a mature and accomplished take on the world. Since then Bishop Nehru's stock has been steadily rising and he recently teased on Twitter that he's about to offer up four projects for release in 2014, one of which has been recorded in tandem with the reclusive super-villain MF DOOM. Here's the scoop on the impending Nehruvian takeover.
NehruvianDOOM Nehruvia: Ununderstandable P.E.A.C.E And i'm producing @_QueHampton EP.— EMPEROR NEHRU (@BishopNehru) January 6, 2014
Can we talk about the four projects you tweeted that you were working on at the moment?
Yeah, sure, what do you want to know?
What's the Que Hampton EP project about?
Que's one of my boys, one of my close friends. He raps, he's was on my songs "Misruled Order" and "Exhale."
You're producing the EP, right?
What sort of beats do you make for Que Hampton?
I think Que is good on any type of beats -- he's very good at choosing beats and making the right selection. He usually lets me know while I'm making the beat whether it's something that he's interested in and we go from there. We're not sure when the project will be released though.
What about the Nehruvia: Ununderstandable project?
Well that's not coming out any time soon. That's just something I'm working on on the side.
So have you finished any songs for it?
Yeah, I have some. But I'm not gonna reveal too much about that one yet; I don't really want to talk too much about that one yet until it comes.
What about the P.E.A.C.E. project then?
Yeah, that's another project that I have coming up but I really don't want to talk about those until after the DOOM project.
Okay, what can you tell me about that?
Well it's titled NehruvianDOOM. It's DOOM producing the beats and I'm rapping over them, though he's going to be on some of the songs too. We don't have any outside features, it's just me and him.
