17 year old artist, Bishop Nehru has been creating buzz this past year with his release of tracks such as Fickle Mind$ (video), and ‘MISRULED ORDER’ Ft. Que Hampton. With an old soul he delivers lyrics with a boom bap feel that renews this generations hip hop gap. WorldStarHipHop named Bishop Nehru the Youth Rap Talent of the Week in July 2012 for his 8-bar freestyle over Mos Def’s classic “Mathematics”. Nehru was featured on Hot97.com as part of their Who’s Next section, which showcases rappers who are next to blow up. He also had the song make its way to Power 105.1’s New NY with Jovonn “The Don” in February 2013. as well as opening for Wu-Tang Clan on their 20th Anniversary European tour.
This past weekend we were able to have him call into Side-B Radio 103.3fm and talk with Phil Jackson about his new album, strictlyFLOWZ (available below), working with his inspiration MF DOOM, how he juggles being a student, artist, director, producer and more.
