Bishop Nehru x MF DOOM

MG_5955-copy

This 18 year old NYC rapper/producer/director has already been making waves from age 13 making beats, to opening for Wu Tang Clan on their 20th anniversary tour last year. I first became aware of him with his debut EP Nehruvia, having heard a few of the tracks separately, a mix of top quality beats from Hip-Hop heavyweights such as DOOM, J Dilla & Madlib garnished with his beyond his years lyrics.

Now as many have heard his most exciting project is forthcoming, a collaborative EP with the legendary MF DOOM, his first retail release it will be available on Lex Records from Sept 23rd and is sure to be straight dope.

The dope album art was done by Ghostshrimp, who designed the world for super crazy cartoon, Adventure Time.

Here is the first track to be released from the project:

Evan Black – For The Birds

b6aad061-786c-4834-b21b-d33d5dc96440 

Some real nice music for you this morning from Boston native Evan Black, his second release after  “The Arrival” which featured the likes of Emilio Rojas, Skyzoo and Reks, boasting a definite Boston feel to this, ‘For The Birds’ is a personal and heartfelt journey through relationships, drinking, daily life and Hip-Hop. His vocals the only featured on the release, flow in harmony with the excellent production by Portland-born recording artist and beatsmith Customary. The release features 12 original new tracks produced by Customary including the singles “Go Round,” “Stay Young” and “Cheap Date.”

Chris B. Murray provides the totally awesome original album artwork.

Okay so we can’t embed the songs, but you can listen/download etc here.
