EDITORS’ NOTES

It's not exactly Michael Jordan mentoring Lebron James, but it's in the neighborhood: one of hip-hop's hottest young MCs, 18-year-old Bishop Nehru, collaborating with 43-year-old legend MF Doom. On NehruvianDOOM, the latter drops a few verses, including his blueprint for rap success on "Great Things," but he stays mainly behind the boards—hence the familiar mix of muddy boom-bap beats, chopped-up movie dialogue, and various cartoony flourishes. Nehru's endlessly unspooling flow is full of internal rhymes and canny wordplay that would make his mentor proud. Short and sweet, this snapshot of a rising star doubles as the first Doom-produced album since 2003's Take Me to Your Leader.
