New York based rapper Bishop Nehru is the latest artist to get the white-lined face treatment from the Grammy nominated duo, Disclosure. This is their first foray into rap production and they did a brilliant job, as expected. Everything the two lads touch seems to turn to gold at the minute. The self proclaimed “master of the sixteen bars” is relentless with his confident and complex rhyming onslaught in this track, it’s a joy to behold.
This is the first time I’ve listened to Bishop Nehru, after a good friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this song. I have to say I’m glad he did. The way the intricate rhymes are layered over the disjointed Disclosure production is brilliant. I thoroughly recommend checking out this track, I’ve posted the video below. The aesthetics aren’t much to look at, it’s basically an animated lyric video but you do get to see some of the clever word play which is nice as you may not pick up on it first time.
Bishop Nehru is in town this week (25/3) supporting Earl Sweatshirt of Odd Future, another amazing young lyricist. I will be at the academy gig, hopefully he comes off as well live as he does on ‘You Stressin’. I have a feeling it’s going to be a big year the Bishop, and I for one can’t wait to be along for the ride.
