Though he's only 16, New York rapper Bishop Nehru imbues his videos with as much care as his songs have skill. Much like the recent clip for his "Fertile Mind$," the new treatment for "Muffled/M.I.C." is based on a beguiling storyline wherein Nehru plays a teenage troublemaker. Shot in first-person, it's certainly eye-catching, but the true shine comes from the all-too-brief new track. The warmly blunted song features the young Bishop deftly piling up syllables without making it a point. His laid-back flow and stuffy voice continue to disarm, and serve him well — we could listen to dude rap about rapping all damned day. "Muffled/M.I.C." will feature on Nehru's upcoming mixtape Strictly Flowz, which will be hosted by DJ Semtex and Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg. The latter has made a career out of riding golden-age revivalists, but this rising star may be too chilled-out to be corrupted.
