After a run of dates on Joey Bada$$’s World Domination tour and nomination for XXL’s Freshman List, NYC-based hip hop artist, Bishop Nehru, announces brand new single, ‘It’s Whateva’, the latest track from his upcoming mixtape ‘Magic 19’, out this June 3rd.
The track Pairs Bishop’s lyrical dexterity and prowness with a nocturnal, “smoked-out” instrumental, the video for ‘It’s Whatever’ is a raw, stripped-back affair that showcases the matured experimentation of ‘Magic 19′.
Speaking on the track, Bishop says, “I’ve been learning to have fun with my music again & it’s been exciting to not only create what I feel is typically me, but what makes me happy and hyped when I hear it. I feel like experimenting with different styles is helping me grow into the artist I always wanted to be!”
In 2013 Bishop released his mixtape ‘Nehruvia’ (which included collaborations with hip-hop’s finest producers including the likes of Madlib & DJ Premier). Three years later, the most exciting new voice in hip-hop has continued to prove critics, consistently establishing himself as an artist far beyond his years. From releasing a joint album with rap heavyweight MF DOOM , touring with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Earl Sweatshirt & Nas, being heralded as the next generation of pure talent in hip-hop by the likes of Kendrick Lamar & collaborating with Disclosure, Little Dragon & Flight Facilities.
‘Magic 19’ will be available from www.BishopNehru.com this June 3rd with his debut album to come later this year.
