Markel Scott, better known as Bishop Nehru, is a rapper and producer from New York. He also directs and edits videos. Nehru is only 23 years old, but a ten year vet in the rap game. At age 13, Nehru began making jazz tracks and hip hop instrumentals under the name “Kelz Scott”.
In 2012, World Star hip hop named Bishop Nehru the Youth Rap Talent of the Week for his freestyle over Mos Def’s Mathematics beat. Bishop opened for Wu Tang Clan on their 20th Anniversary European tour. He was embraced early in the game by true hip hop heads and lyrical legends in the game like Nas and Mf Doom because his lyrical presentation was complex for his age and reminiscent of the 90 golden era of hip hop.
I consider Nehru a known unknown. He is a staple in hip hop and just dropped his 15th project entitled “Nehruvia :My Disregarded Thoughts” which may be his best work to date.
