(AllHipHop News) 23-year-old Hip Hop artist Markel “Bishop Nehru” Scott is already a seven-year veteran of the music industry. His 2012 mixtape, Nehruvia, introduced the then-teenager to a wider audience as an emcee to keep an eye on.
Scott went on to release other solo projects like StrictlyFLOWz, MAGIC: 19, and Elevators (Act I & II). He also partnered with MF Doom for NehruvianDoom as well as Dizzy Wright and 9th Wonder for the Brilliant Youth EP. The Nanuet, New York representative is now preparing his next album My Disregarded Thoughts.
“I came up with the title for this record before I’d even started making music,” says Bishop. “My Disregarded Thoughts was originally planned as the title of 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.”
Nehru, MF DOOM, DJ Premier, and Maaly Raw provided production for My Disregarded Thoughts. The two-act LP (The Abyss and The Escape) is scheduled to hit DSPs on November 8 via the Nehruvia record label. As a precursor, the rapper/producer/video director dropped the single “In My Zone” which is featured on the NBA 2K20 soundtrack.
“If you love what you’re doing and you create a lot, you’re gonna evolve,” says Bishop. He also declared, “I’ve become way more comfortable making music, more confident than ever before in how I present my music. Now, nobody is better than me.”
