Bishop Nehru is aiming high, and for very good reason. The young emcee with a strong resume is gearing up to release Elevators, a conceptual project that carries production exclusively handled by DOOM and Kaytranada. On paper, this is going to be fantastic. But, music is made on paper and eventually, every tracklist has to show and prove.
Nehru took a big step forward in that regard with his new video for “Rooftops”, which premiered yesterday via Complex. The visuals don’t disappoint, and the song is horn driven and very jazzy as Bishop tells the story of his life as an artist, where he is, where he’s been, and where he wants to be. That’s at the heart of Elevators as well. Bishop told Complex that it is feeling-based, and his attempt at something like Pet Sounds, by the Beach Boys.
Peep the video below.
Elevators releases 3/16.
