Finally another All Eyes On Hip Hop event in collaboration with DEMOCRAZY. We are coming back to DOK to present to you BISHOP NEHRU!
Markel Scott (born August 26, 1996), better known by his stage name Bishop Nehru, is an American rapper and producer from Nanuet, New York who also directs and edits music videos.
In 2013 Bishop released his critically-acclaimed debut mixtape ‘Nehruvia’ (which included collaborations with hip-hop’s finest producers including the likes of Madlib & DJ Premier). Three years later, the most exciting new voice in hip-hop has continued to prove critics, consistently establishing himself as an artist far beyond his years. From releasing a joint album with rap heavyweight MF Doom, touring with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Earl Sweatshirt & NAS, being heralded as the next generation of pure talent in hip-hop by the likes of Kendrick Lamar & collaborating with Disclosure, Little Dragon & Flight Facilities, the 19-year-old rising star has shot through the ranks as 2016’s most promising new talents.
On June 3 he released a new mixtape, called Magic: 19. His solo debut album will follow later this year on Nas' label Mass Appeal.
