19-Year-Old Bishop Nehru Brings His Tight, Off-Kilter Rhymes To New York

To describe Bishop Nehru just as DOOM’s protege would undermine his unique talent, one that helped him mostly self-produce his debut album Magic 19. Bishop raps with the same intricate rhyme patterns as his hero and at just 19, it’s likely he’ll grow to perfect his style even further in the coming years. The relationship started in April 2013 when Bishop was opening for Ghostface Killah and MF DOOM at the 100 Club in London, which eventually led to a friendship and working relationship with DOOM that would see the release of last fall’s highly anticipated NehruvianDOOM.

At the Knitting Factory in New York, the young MC was joined by Phenom, Bush Tea and 99 SUBLIME. Wearing a hood for a good part of his performance, the young MC seemed comfortable on stage but still showed the reserved personality that comes out in his lyrics. Songs like “So Alone” sounded just like the album, with Bishop telling us why he’s lonely over a glittery backing track, but the real star of the show were tracks like “Did I Find It” and “It’s Whateva” where Bishop could show his tight flow and quick rhythm.

Bishop Nehru found a lot of his following online – his SoundCloud has 70,000+ followers – and that’s still one of the best places to find his music and tour dates. He has a few more shows this summer, and will likely head out on a real U.S. headlining tour sooner or later.
