Brooklyn rapper Bishop Nehru shot to fame in the mid-2010s with his comeback sound that caught the ears of many, even the late MF DOOM. This connection ultimately led to the release of Nehru’s 2018 project. Elevators (Act I & II) which also featured production from DOOM and Kaytranda. Elevators (Act I & II) was the sequel to his 2017 project Emperor Nehru’s New Groove, both of which helped bolster his stock among the young rappers he was aligned with at the time. Fast forward to now, and Nehru is only weeks away from releasing a new project, but before he does, he shared a music video that has some people talking.
On Tuesday, Nehru released the video for his latest single, “Heroin Addiction.” In this one, the rapper appears to be trying his hand at heroin, which of course is a highly addictive drug. “I tried heroin in the new video [sad emoiji]”, he wrote in a post about the video on Twitter. Although he apparently went through the process of injecting heroin into his arm, it was clear that the rapper had not done so despite his post-injection reaction of vomiting and falling asleep apparently due to the effects of the drug.
Regardless, the video still made its way across social media and many were quick to share their thoughts about it on Twitter. Nehru’s “Heroin Addiction” video comes ahead of his next project which is set to drop on May 27.
