MF DOOM and Bishop Nehru’s collaborative album under the name NehruvianDOOM is due out September 22nd via Lex Records. After releasing the video for „Darkness“ a couple of weeks ago, they’ve now dropped the new track, „Om“, features rapping from DOOM.
NehruvianDOOM grew out of a meeting at London’s famous jazz venue, dive bar, the 100 Club in April 2013 where DOOM and a then 16 year old Bishop Nehru were booked to play. DOOM was immediately impressed by Bishop Nehru, an mc prodigy who has been co-signed by Kendrick Lamar and described by Nas as “the future of music”. After the show, DOOM and Bishop stayed in touch on e-mail, DOOM sending new beats and Bishop sending back his vocals. A year later and a couple of studio sessions behind them, the work has taken shape. The Metal Fingers production, and Bishop Nehru’s classic flow makes it sound like they found missing Ampex reels from ’94. The album is the first full length studio album produced by DOOM since ‘Take Me to Your Leader’ in 2003.
