Bishop Nehru is a young up-and-coming emcee/producer who released his renowned mixtapes at fifteen and has been working with MF DOOM's productions ever since -- as well as winning the love of rappers as acclaimed as Kendrick Lamar. His debut, the eponymous and wicked fast 'NEHRUVIANDOOM' (at only nine tracks and half an hour in run time), also features vocals from mentor DOOM.

8/10 Andrew Customer review, 2nd October 2014
A new Doom album is always cause for celebration, he remains one of the more interesting MC's out there, his work with some of the greatest producers out there such as Madlib demonstrate his ability to pick a winning partner. So has he done it again? Yes, and to a lesser extent no.
This is a well produced album as you'd expect with those involved, not to mention the fact Disastrous is apparently produced by Madvillain (further clues as to a follow up?). Typically entertaining samples, funky breaks used to keep things grooving despite the more off beat, abstract lyrics. It isn't a Doom album though, there is a real split on mic duties, that to be honest helps give it variation.
So why the reservation? Well I just feel slightly shortchanged. At 15 quid, you get what feels more like a mini album, many tracks disappear into sample skits, which while good listening makes the album feel a little cobbled together. Its all done in less than half an hour. Though I guess a short burst of quality is better than a ropey concept double LP with no more than a couple of decent tracks. Brevity never hurt Whats Going On.
Doom fans are likely to buy anyway and wont be disappointed, I just feel that with a little bit of effort the clear creativity and talent of these two could have produced a classic, rather than a Very Good.
