New York, NY – Bishop Nehru announced his next album, Elevators: Act I & II, was on its way last October. Now, the 21-year-old MC has unveiled the project’s release date. According to a press release, Elevators: Act I & II is expected to arrive on March 16.
Ahead its release, Nehru has shared a trailer for the DOOM and Kaytranada-produced album. Created by Raphael Truffi Bortholuzzi Grandmondo Miniatures, the visual finds Bishop narrating the inspiration behind the album’s two part concept (Act I – Ascension & Act II – Free Falling).
“This project is a collection my feelings straight from my heart,” Nehru explained in the press release. “All my ideas were created specifically f instinct and intuitive occurrences. This album is my answer to the question, ‘What would you say your music sound like?’ My answer to that would be ‘Grammy Rap.’
“There’s ‘Mumble Rap’ and then there’s ‘Grammy Rap,’” he added. “With this project I was largely influenced by music theory and Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. This is my attempt at a ‘rap’ Pet Sounds.”
The upcoming 10-track fering follows DOOM and Nehru’s collaborative project, 2014’s NehrunDOOM.

Aside from August’s “WW3,” New York-based rap prodigy Bishop Nehru has been relatively quiet. But that’s all about to change. Nehru has just rolled through with an announcement that a new project, Elevators: Act I & II, is on the way.
The 21-year-old MC took to Instagram on Tuesday (October 24) to post a photo himself and Kaytranada with a caption that read: “MY NEW ALBUM “ELEVATORS: ACT I & II” (Prod. by @KAYTRANADA & DOOM) IS COMING SOON.”
DOOM, who Nehru collaborated with on 2014’s NehrunDoom, is producing the project alongside Kay.
According to Nehru, the forthcoming project is just the tip the iceberg.
Nehru told HipHopDX, “Trust me I have a lot new stuff coming. I have a mixtape and an album finished up.”
