Bishop Nehru is part of a new generation of artists who aren’t satisfied just rapping and handling the music making duties–instead, he is up all hours making and curating content, from videos to the artwork which accompanies his releases. The latest of which is a timeless-feeling track entitled “Exhale” featuring his cohort Que Hampton. The video is an eerie Saw-esque visual, which drops just in time for Halloween. Happy Halloween!!!! #Nehruvia

Latyrx - "Watershed Moment" ft. tUnE-yArDs and The Gift of Gab of Blackalicious

Renowned experimental hip-hop duo Latyrx, made up of MC's Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truthspeaker, released another track from The Second Album, which comes out next Tuesday. "Watershed Moment," features fellow Solesides founding member The Gift of Gab of Blackalicious and vocals and production from Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs. The song, which SPIN described as "bewitchingly hypnotic," employs an incredibly unique combination of fluid bird calls, militaristic chants, and tenacious declarations over a simple percussive motif that makes excellent use of negative space to highlight stylized double-time lyrics about the earth's most precious resource: water.
Today, Rhymesayers Entertainment leaked the track-listing and cover art for Lord Steppington, the debut album from Step Brothers (Alchemist & Evidence). In addition, XXLmag premiered "Ron Carter", a free, downloadable track, which will not be featured on the album.

1.) “More Wins”
2.) “Dr. Kimble”
