The lyrically dexterous Harlem native A$AP Rocky discusses everything from fashion to the Mob and lifts the curtain on his new album.
The New York native takes us through his listening habits and influences, as well as the meaning of his name. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the ‘Bishop’ part is an ode to Tupac’s character in “Juice,” however the rapper also mentions the spiritual connotations associated with the word ‘Bishop.’ The second part of his name, ‘Nehru,’ might be more unexpected, as the rapper reveals he took the name from the first prime minister of India, who was in cahoots with Gandi.
Bishop also takes us back to the project that first got his name circulating, Nehruvia, and ultimately led to do a deal with his idol, Nas. He goes on to talk about his first meeting with Nas, as well as getting to meet MF Doom. We wrap things up with discussion of his newest project, a joint effort with DOOM called NehruvianDOOM, as well as what’s next for the rest of 2015.

After putting on the ceremonial blindfold, Filthy randomly selected Lani Hall’s Albany Park, Michael Quatro’s In Collaboration With The Gods, and Barry White’s Greatest Hits: Volume Two. Once we arrived at his studio, he got right to work and began crafting a joint from the Michael Quatro record. Boldy James actually stopped by right after Filthy laid down the beat, and fucked with what he heard so much, that he recorded a verse on the spot
