Bishop Nehru is only 19, but has already worked with MF DOOM, Little Dragon, Disclosure, Madlib, Nas, and more. Kendrick Lamar recently called him the “next generation of pure talent” in hip-hop. After recently coming off of Joey Bada$$’s World Domination tour and a current nomination for XXL’s Freshman List, NYC-based hip hop prodigy, Bishop Nehru, announces brand new single, “$acred Visions”, from his upcoming eleven track mixtape Magic 19, out this June 3rd.
It’s been almost a year since the release of the Nehruvian EP, in that time Bishop has been evolving his sound, merging the golden age feel that Bishop has become synonymous with a more mature flow. ‘$acred Visions’ is the perfect introduction to the artist to date while also hinting at the current experimentation of sound on new mixtape Magic 19. Speaking on the mixtape, Bishop says, “lately, I’ve been evolving. True evolution. New flows, new sounds.”
In 2013 Bishop released his debut mixtape Nehruvia (which included collaborations with producers Madlib & DJ Premier). Three years later, Bishop Nehru continues to release new music.
