If you listen to today’s featured EP and think it sounds like a younger version of MF DOOM, you’re forgiven. At 18 years old, Bishop Nehru has already worked with the legendary masked rapper as half of last year’s duo, NehruvianDOOM. And now he’s working on album, which is being produced by no less than fellow New Yorker Nas, one of the greatest rappers of all time.
This is just a little example of how his complex lyrics provoke thought…
“I’ve been out of my mind, feeling feeble.
Why am I the guy seen as evil?
Time is flying by like an eagle.
I’m trying to survive and be peaceful.”
This is not the kind of music you can have in the background–it will demand too much attention. So get the freEP, listen well, and get ready for his official full length.
Get it here or from Soundcloud…
T’Challa gets another series, but it’s a miniseries. Peter Gillis wrote it and the great Denys Cowan drew it. It starts, above, with a tribute to Gil Kane’s classic shot of Panther vs. a rhino.
The art is good, but the story is a pretty heavy-handed tale of racism. The villains pretty much sum it up…
Not terrible, but not great.
