The inspiration rappers have drawn from comic book characters over the years is undeniable, whether it be superheroes, villains or relatively normal protagonists who happen to find themselves in extraordinary circumstances.
It's no secret that hip-hop can stretch itself a bit thin as far as creativity is concerned. If artists were taxed every time they mentioned dollars, they'd all be broke. Fortunately, amongst the clones, several voices stand out from the crowd.
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.
On certain occasions obscure and experimental sounds explode into something extraordinary.
MF DOOM is one of the most interesting figures in rap music. The metal-masked villain has remained prominent in the underground rap world for over 20 years now, and his unique brand of flavor is enjoyed by critics, MCs and fans alike.
Bishop Nehru and MF Doom have collaborated on an entire album, the highly anticipated NehruvianDOOM. The album doesn't actually drop until October 6th, but leading up to the album release, Pitchfork has an exclusive stream of the LP.
During an interview with the New York Observer about the closing of the legendary D & D Studios, DJ Premier announced that MF Doom is set to be featured on a deluxe edition of PRhyme.
Fans of superhero (or supervillain)-inspired hip-hop, rejoice -- You may just get the genre's holy grail next year.
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.
