10 Essential Bishop Nehru Tracks

Bishop Nehru is one of the young guns coming up in the hip-hop world. With enough respect to have a collaboration project with MF Doom, a tour with Wu-Tang Clan and airtime on Hot 97, it's safe to say that he is in a position to blow up. He's done this without the help of pop hooks and DJ Mustard production, making his success a story of artistry rather than mainstream mumbo-jumbo. He was, however, one of the first rappers to pair with Disclosure when their garage-revival sound was breaking in the US.

When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".  This week, see who Kendrick Lamar, Logic and Bishop Nehru & DOOM sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

Bishop Nehru is a relatively new rapper, but he's already been able to make an impact on the NY rap scene, since dropping his debut project Nehruvia in May of 2013. The tape was a good indication of the young MC, with his beat selection decidedly old school; production ranges from MF Doom to Madlib to J Dilla.
