Bishop Nehru's "Elevators" is a trip worth taking.


At last, an enjoyable elevator ride. While generally claustrophobic and prone to becoming overcrowded, Bishop's Elevators is the polar opposite: breezy, spacious, and free-flowing. Made for those seeking that classic New York sound, Nehru's two act project features strong production from the unlikely pairing of MF DOOM and Montreal's Kaytranada. Together, the talented musicians build a diverse sonic palette over which Nehru can wax poetic. Lyrically, he's as surefire as ever. Tracks like "Driftin" should scratch the itch for those lamenting a cultural shift, as Nehru drifts over a cloudy yet gritty instrumental.

As an emcee, Bishop is well-rounded. Capable of delivering "bars" (as shouted by Funk Flex at high volumes) and storytelling in equally adept measure, Nehru has delivered one for the album lovers. Like Wiki's 2017 album No Mountains In Manhattan, Bishop's Elevator is cut from the same cloth; a deftly crafted, low-key piece of New York hip-hop. Don't sleep.
