Bishop Nehru Shares ‘Elevators: Act I & II’ Album Cover
"THE “ELEVATORS ACT I & II” A KAYTRANADA AND DOOM PRODUCTION ALBUM COVER. ALBUM DROPS MARCH 16TH STUUUUPID," the rapper tweeted. The artwork features toy models of Bishop and Kaytranada. And while MF Doom doesn't appear on the cover, the producer's famous mask does make an appearance on the wall.
Set to release in March, Bishop calls Elevators a collection of his feelings straight from the heart. "This album is my answer to the question, 'What would you say your music sound like?' My answer to that would be 'Grammy Rap.' There's 'Mumble Rap' and then there's 'Grammy Rap.' With this project I was largely influenced by music theory and Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. This is my attempt at a 'rap' Pet Sounds," he said.
The rapper previously released a trailer for the album, which actually offered a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the project's cover and explained the inspiration behind the album being split into two concepts.
The upcoming 10-track project will be Bishop's second time teaming up with Doom for a project after the two released NehruvianDOOM in 2014.
