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.
I gotta give the Nehruvians an EP before NehruvianDOOM. I feel obligated.
