Bishop Lamont & Mopreme Shakur “Don’t Stop” From “Layover”


This Carson California wordsmith doesn’t necessarily need a formal introduction. Let’s just do a quick career retrospective. Dubcnn was one of the first places that introduced you to Bishop Lamont online, before the chance meeting with Dr. Dre on the set of The Game’s “Dreams” video and him being scooped up to Aftermath.

While sitting on the shelf over at the “House that Dre built,” Bishop Lamont made the very best of his impatience, and later frustration, by ultimately checking in, via varied cameo appearances on others’ high profile projects, whenever the opportunity presented itself, as well as continually flooding the streets with his popular mix-tape entries – all of which have appeared on Dubcnn down the years [check the archives].

After more than five years without his solo album release, Bishop opted to part ways with Aftermath camp, following in the footsteps of many signees; most notably Joell Ortiz, Rakim, Hittman and Last Emperor, before him, it was early 2011 before we tracked him down for this exclusive interview .

During the latter half of 2011 new music was scarce but at the turn of 2012 we confirmed that a re-worked version of his shelved Aftermath LP “The Reformation” was in the works. Following the promotional trailer for the first single off of “The Reformation” we then brought you the full Sodom and Gomorrah single with DJ Rhettmatic and then his 5 Fingers of Death Freestyle.

Bishop is finalising “The Reformation” for release under his own Diocese Entertainment imprint but within the new few weeks will release a new mixtape with DJ Woogie entitled “The Layover” – and days ago he released the first sample titled “Dont Stop” featuring Mopreme Shakur over a Nick Speed production – check it below!
