Whats in the water on the east coast right now?
In post Pro-Era New York, it seems you only have to turn your back for a minute and some young upstarts got a mixtape out that makes you feel like a failure as they have a better flow than half the guys out there, and they’re like 14 and probably still have a curfew or some shit.
A standout mixtape at the moment though is from a young buck you should be watching. Enter Bishop Nehru from upstate new york. His recent mixtape Nehruvia is just him over some beats by the masters including Dilla and DJ Premier, but the rate at which he’s developing could see him explode in the next year.
Yea, his flow is kinda like Kirk Knight, and people have been bitching about some of the low production value. But for me, the lo-fi element is part of the charm, and with an EP entitled Strictly Flows and a talk of a production project, this guys one to watch.
O, he’s sixteen by the way. Kinda puts all that time you spent playing COD in context huh?
