After teasing the project's arrival late last year, Bishop Nehru has unveiled his ambitious Elevators: Act I & II, and you can hear the entire album right now.

Arriving today independently, the album finds Nehru teaming up with Kaytranada and mentor MF Doom, with each producer lending their beats to a single side of the album. Prior to the record's arrival, Nehru had shared "Rooftops" and the Lion Babe-assisted "Up Up and Away."

"This project is a collection of my feelings straight from my heart, all of my ideas were created specifically off of instinct and intuitive occurrences," Bishop Nehru previously said in a statement. "This album is my answer to the question, 'What would you say your music sound like?' My answer to that would be 'Grammy Rap.' There's 'Mumble Rap' and then there's 'Grammy Rap.' With this project I was largely influenced by music theory and Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys. This is my attempt at a 'rap' Pet Sounds."
