    <h2>Bishop Nehru</h2>The teenage MC derived his name from a few different sources. Born Markel Scott, the New York rapper named himself after Tupac Shakur's character in the film <i>Juice</i>, Bishop. And as for the surname of Nehru? It's the last name of an Indian prime minister who worked closely with Gandhi.

UPDATE:  We finally have a release date for NehruvianDOOM. The Bishop Nehru, MF Doom collaboration is being released on Sept. 23.

Nehru made the announcement through his Twitter.


Seventeen-year old New York rapper Bishop Nehru is already becoming a mainstay on the underground scene thanks to co-signs from heavyweights like Nas and Kendrick Lamar. Last summer, Nehru announced that he would be teaming up with MF Doom for a project entitled, NehruvianDOOM. Originally slated to be an EP, the collaboration is now being stretched to a full album.

While waiting for an official release date, the teenager took to Twitter to announce that he is releasing a solo EP.


More news on the project coming soon.—Peter Walsh
