He released his earlier works on the Odd Future forum & other forums like Hypebeast, Skateboard-City, Lookbook, and many more. Odd Future Talk was the forum that gave a then young Nehru listens.{{citation needed|date=January 2015}} [[WorldStarHipHop]] named Bishop Nehru the Youth Rap Talent of the Week in July 2012 for his 8-bar freestyle over [[Mos Def]]'s classic "[[Mathematics (song)|Mathematics]]". Nehru was featured on [[WQHT|Hot97.com]] as part of their ''Who's Next'' section, which showcases rappers who are next to blow up.
