There is nothing like finding out about a new up-and-coming artist and being able to share you guys his music as I discover it. And boy do we have a prodigy on our hands this week. This kid Bishop Nehru is the one of those rising talents in the hip hop game that make me feel a lot better about where hip hop will take us in the future. Dude is 16-years-old, can spit with the best of them, and produces his own music, AND directs his own video. The type of talent you wish you had when you were 16. Him, Joey Bada$$, and Earl Sweatshirt have the teenage game on absolute lock down. Calling it “teenage game” is almost an insult, because that implies that they aren’t quite on the same level as everyone else, and that’s not the case at all. The way these guys spit you would think you were kicking it on Lennox Ave back in the early 90’s. Appropriately enough, Bishop hails from New York. He apparently is working with MF Doom for his latest project, which should be dropping relatively soon. For a vet like Doom to scoop this kid up at the tender age of 16 speaks volumes to the talent Bishop has and the respect he already has from the legends in the game. This is the first song I ever heard from him, “Fickle Mind$”. Time to recognize people.
