BISHOP NEHRU-The Nehruvian EP


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…

MASON JAR MUSIC-Decoration Day Volume 4

As always, it’s free. The new compilation from Americana analog label Mason Jar Music. Standout tracks: Cassandra Jenkins’ “Spirit,” which is inspiring me to go buy her album; LA Freeway by Roseann Cash (I thought I’d already heard the definitive version when I heard Bill Hearne’s version, but this one is even better); and Cory Chisel doing Bring it on Home to Me.

But seriously, this Cassandra Jenkins gal is fantastic.  Find more of her music here–including the cover of Wild Word that I embedded below.

COUSIN STIZZ-Suffolk County


I don’t know who this guy is, but he’s damn good. Be warned: He’s a thug. This is a tape about dealing drugs, beating people up, and generally being an asshole. Stizz is from Boston, and he’s got that “little urban” mentality—this is the voice of guys who never get off the corner, never stop hustling, and don’t even dream much bigger than that. “I speak of shit that I don’t know,” he says. And it seems to be true.

But he knows a lot. Yeah, there’s swagger and bravado here—and not much in the way of insight—but he paints a clear picture of a place, a person, a way of life. “This for the people. Follow me and I’ll lead you. Don’t let ‘em deceive you….They claim to be kings but nothing they do is regal.” That’s from “Talk,” which is just a long, sing-song rap that keeps going on and on like that. He’s got vocabulary, he’s got delivery, he can say stuff you’ve heard before in a way that makes you hear it differently.

Truly an amazing mixtape.

BOBBY RAPS AND CORBIN-Couch Potato (EP)

What the hell is this? I hear some almost hardcore rap delivery here, but then Frozen Tundra comes in and it’s an airy, almost Basehead-like space jam. Corbin (aka Spooky Black) is behind the board, and the beats are great. Bobby Raps is just….Odd. His lyrics are odd (when you can understand what he’s saying), and his delivery isn’t quite stoned…It’s more drunk. Very drunk. And as such he’s prone to angry sudden outbursts.

This is by far the strangest hip hop EP debut I’ve heard in a while.

TWO FROM AMIN PAYNE

Two sample-based free beats-like albums off Bandcamp. I dug ’em both, but I dug Curtis a bit more ’cause he’s a bit better than George Benson. Payne’s also got a Gil Scott Heron tribute, if you’re liking these.
