Here is everything you need to know.
Bishop Nehru tries heroin in his new music video
Bishop Nehru allegedly used narcotic heroin in the music video for his new single, ‘Heroin Addiction’.
The two-minute video clip shows Nehru lighting the spoon with the alleged heroin powder. As soon as it bubbles up, the musician loads the substance into a needle and injects it into his arm.
He later suffers from the aftermath of drug abuse. He was shown vomiting several times and seemed quite disoriented.
The music video came along with a disclaimer that read: ‘This video was made specifically for artistic purposes. In the Nehruvian family we do not condone or promote the use of hard drugs.
Nehru is mostly recognized for collaborating with DJ Premier and the late MF DOOM.
The track Heroin Addiction was released to promote Nehru’s next project. The mixtape is scheduled to drop on May 27.

Few people even accused the rapper of “chasing influence” over the recent video.
Regardless, some users were concerned about Nehru’s well-being.
The singer posted a worrying tweet on May 8. He said: ‘Sometimes I feel that the only way to achieve peace is through death’.
Crazy when Bishop Nehru makes regular videos, gets like 4K views and then shoots something on camera and gets 1 million views in 24 hours. It could be an experiment showing how people don’t really take advantage unless it’s something wild. yes it is a bit extreme and could do more damage

They shit on Bishop Nehru for nothing really, if they think he’s real they shit on him and if they think he’s fake then same thing. That’s been happening his whole career and somehow they always have to bring DOOM into the mix.
