17-year old Bishop Nehru falls in the category of the new wave of young NY MC's on the rise- a young cat with an old school flow and complex lyrics & rhyme schemes. The young NY native is more than just a rapper though - he also produces music, as well as directs and edits videos - he does a lot of his own production and videos. Fresh off two successful projects "Nehruvia" and "strictlyFLOWz" (hosted by Peter Rosenberg & DJ Semtex) Bishop toured with Wu-Tang Clan on their 20th anniversary tour. Bishop is currently working on a collaborative ep with MF DOOM to be released late 2013.
Bishop chose his name from inspiration taken from Tupac's character in the movie "Juice," noting that the character of Bishop inspires him "to go out and get mine, you've got to earn respect." The Nehru is taken from the the former prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, who worked closely with legendary peacemaker Ghandi but never got the credit for his work.
