Bishop Nehru and MF DOOM have reunited once again for a new track titled “Meathead,” the latest single from Nehru’s eighth album, Nehruvia: My Disregarded Thoughts. The power duo, which most notably teamed up for 2014’s NehruvianDoom, continues to highlight their eclectic take on classic NYC boom bap. Feeling as if jumping off a comic book page, the two intertwine their unstoppable lyrical wordplay on the track.

Produced by the supervillain rapper himself, DOOM opens the track with “I sip a hot tea, watchin’ Archie flip on Meathead,” flinging out a slew of pop culture references and sociopolitically-charged bars that set up the track for Nehru. The young DOOM protégé continues to harness his own lyrical prowess, flipping Notorious B.I.G.’s iconic line from “Suicidal Thoughts.” “When I die, fuck it, I guess I prefer me goin’ to Hell/Because Earth is truly the same, so the difference I’ll never tell/He send it like it’s the mail, Captain Bishy set his sail/Excel like Microsoft on all of these other fails,” he spits. The accompanying animated visual plays into both artist’s longstanding inspiration from comic books, which sees some interesting cameos, with Nehru himself seen fighting Satan in Hell.

Catch the visual for “Meathead” above. Nehruvia: My Disregarded Thoughts arrives on May 8.
