DO NOT sleep on the kid. Bishop Nehru is the 16-year old from upstate New York coming as another breadth of fresh air. The young MC derived his name from Tupac’s character, Bishop, in the film Juice. The moniker represents his sights on not earning your respect but taking it. That’s the flow of exactly what Bishop Nehru has started. Bishop Nehru’s first body of work, Nehruvia, showcases depth well beyond his years over melodic beats also before his era. On the Nehruvia mixtape are a few original works that accompany rhymes on top of instrumentals from MF Doom, Madlib, and J Dilla. Sounds a lot like fellow Beast Coast juvenile Joey Bada$$. The immediate comparisons have already risen but shouldn’t be emphasized. Bishop Nehru is doing his own thing, his own way. Production is ensuing on an upcoming Strictly Flows EP. Music and hip-hop should be celebrating this resurgence to freshness, especially coming from New York. Peep the Bishop Nehru original “Misruled Order” music video for a glimpse and stream Nehruvia below.
The rumor mill has been churning for several years, particularly after they released “Derezzed” for Tron: Legacy. There were more rumors of a spot at Coachella, but that has yet to be actually confirmed. We’ve all been sitting on the edge of our seats after the French duo aired a mysterious 15-second ad during Saturday Night Live on March 2nd.
Further fueling the fire, the same ad was projected on to a building and looped as Ultra Music Festival-goers were leaving Friday night in Miami. Who’s willing to bet money they’ll be making an appearance at Ultra this weekend? I’ll be watching from home via UMFTV, and you can too if you click here.
It’s been a long time since I’ve felt as excited as I am right now. They’ve been making music since I was in diapers, and it’s surreal to anticipate a new album from these guys now that I’m old enough to appreciate it.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this isn’t an elaborate hoax as we approach April Fool’s Day. As of right now, you can pre-order “Random Access Memories” via iTunes. According to the iTunes pre-order page, it’ll be 13 tracks and is being released by Columbia Records with an expected release date of May 21st.
Go pre-order Random Access Memories now, and in the meantime, enjoy one of my favorites from Daft Punk:
With the Fall Out Boy reunion and Taking Back Sunday writing for their overdue LP, my nostalgic heart had found reason to beat once more. That is, until I awoke to hear the news of My Chemical Romance finally calling it quits. They’re marching a black parade all over my feelings. (See what I did there?)
The band left a simple, yet meaningful statement on their website:
“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.”
Being a fan of them since 2002, I’m personally taking this one a bit hard. It’s like a chunk of my childhood was just ripped apart. But, they’re a great group of guys with very bright futures ahead of them. Hopefully in a few years they’ll give us a reunion, heavy black-eyeliner included.
Now, I’ll leave you with the video that launched them into teen-angst popularity:
T-Pain’s new song “Come and Get It” featuring Ace Hood and Busta Rhymes was just released and was actually produced by Rihanna and Nikki Minaj! Listen to “Come and Get it” below!
Bow Wow’s new song “We Bout That” features Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled and is not a song to miss. ”We Bout That” will be on Bow Wow’s upcoming mixtape, Greenlight 5. Listen to We Bout That by Bow Wow, Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled below!
