This interview was more of a great conversation with one of our geek brothers. It's the whole reason our very own Illumeenous asked him to be our guest after she saw his Instagram comicbook picks. Bishop talked about how the different media industries treat artists, what strategies he's using to do his own self-promotion and run his label, and what he felt about nerds rapping (Nerdcore). The brother definitely considers God and Family as the most important aspects of his life. And Bishop had some very encouraging words for others out there that are trying to be creative in their own way.
As always, this show contains Explicit language. You have been warned. Hope you enjoy!
