Bishop Nehru’s Upcoming “My Disregarded Thoughts” LP Features DJ Premier & DOOM

Posted on in Fresh Gems

Bishop Nehru was only 16 years old when his first ficial mixtape Nehru dropped in 2013.

The New York native wasn’t the typical teenager either — he had an intense appreciation for the golden age Hip Hop despite being born at the tail end it. He enlisted DJ Premier, Madlib and DOOM for the project and ultimately went on to do an entire DOOM collaboration in 2014 called NehrunDOOM. 

Six years later, Bishop Nehru is getting ready to drop his eighth ficial project and follow-up to 2018’s Elevators (Act I & II)My Disregarded Thoughts. Once again, he’s recruited Preemo and DOOM for the album.

According to a press release, the album was recorded and engineered in Preemo’s Queens studio and “grounded in trap-leaning bombast, orchestral diversions, astral jazz, spaced-out funk and the sample-heavy beats Dilla and Madib.”

To coincide with the announcement, Bishop Nehru has shared a visual for one the singles from the album called “In My Zone,” which is also featured in NBA 2K20. The appropriately titled track finds the now 23-year-old MC brushing f the notion he needs anyone to succeed.

As for the album, he says, “I came up with the title for this record before I’d even started making music. My Disregarded Thoughts was originally planned as the title my first ever mixtape, but that never happened.

“The reason was, I wanted the project to be as eccentric as possible, but I needed to be in an artistically comfortable place to create that. Now I’m finally in that place, ten years later.”

My Disregarded Thoughts is expected to arrive on November 8.
