Boomkat Product Review:
Up-and-coming NYC rapper, Bishop Nehru, gets served a healthy sack of beats by metal-fingers-in-exile, Doom, for his debut album with Lex Records.
Imagine how gassed Nehru must be, a 19 year old MC with a massive thing for golden-era '90s hip hop, who's been given a debut vehicle by the guy who defined that era at its most rugged, smartest? Luckily it doesn't go to his head on 'NehruvianDOOM (Sound Of The Son)'. He comes off as a keen, hungry, disciplined rapper with a consciousness beyond his years. But it's debatable how far he stamps his own personality on the project.
Riding over a selection of Special Blends beats that Doom didn't use for a dolo project - including a smart Madvillain number in 'Disastrous' - it perhaps feels like a slightly timid throwback rather than the best showcase for Nehru. That said, it's quite satisfying for those who crave owt to do with Doom and his cartoonish/hardcore beats, and should give a crack yung MC some deserved time in the spotlight.
