Tonight at Birthdays in Dalston, 19 year old Bishop Nehru will be performing a surprise show off the back of his ‘MAGIC:19’ release earlier this month. The New York Hip-Hop artist boasts an impressive amount of backing from well-respected rap-game veterans including Nas, MF DOOM and the Wu-Tang Clan.
Having met MF DOOM at a London show when he was 16, the two released a joint project in 2014 called “NehruvianDOOM” which was a masterclass in flow and delivery. Nehru has also supported Wu-Tang Clan on tour, with his upcoming album being executively produced by the legendary Nas.
Bishop has a throwback sound but refuses to limit himself to boom-bap, killing beats as varied as MF DOOM instrumentals and Drake’s ‘Jumpman’.
The show tonight is 18+ but is free entry, so get down to Birthdays and see why this rising star is being touted as a future great.
