Bishop Nehru Interview @ Osheaga 2015

"...emotion is straight linked to spirit and so is music."

New York rapper and producer Bishop Nehru hit the Stingray Music Zone at the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival on August 1, 2015 for his first time performing in Montreal. Krystal Christine from The Trend (Tuesdays, 9PM on CJLO 1690AM) caught up with him before the show to chat about what he learned from the legendary MF Doom, and why he just loves about Oprah Winfrey.

What is the meaning of your name, Bishop Nehru?

"Bishop is a spiritual adviser in churches and things like that. So I flipped that and put it into music, because emotion is straight linked to spirit and so is music. They say that music is the language of the soul so I thought it would be clever. The Nehru part is the first Prime Minister in India who worked alongside Ghandi. He has a lot of controversy around him now. Like mad stuff popping off right but, I still respect him for his meditational purpose, and things like that, which I also do and take practice in."
