Download 16-Year-Old Bishop Nehru’s ‘strictlyFLOWZ’ Mixtape
You may not hear the name Bishop Nehru brought up in the same breath as Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson, but the gravelly-voiced, baby-faced teen is "New New York" through-and-through.
After his March mixtape, 'Nehruvia,' caught the ears of the rap blogosphere, which subsequently helped him land his first overseas show supporting Ghostface Killah and MF DOOM in London, 16-year-old Bishop follows up with his new full-length project, 'strictlyFLOWZ.'
At just 10 tracks long -- with only a handful of those cuts surpassing the three-minute mark -- 'strictlyFLOWZ' is slim, but perfectly concise. Young Bishop toys with topics and flows over an impeccable selection of jazzy, boom bap beats. Mark Mason and Que Hampton provide the only vocal support on the mixtape, but don't think it's without its co-signs; Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg and BBC Radio 1Xtra's DJ Semtex share hosting duties.
