Rapper-turned-YouTuber Markel ‘Bishop Nehru’ Scott went viral after releasing a video where he appears to inject heroin in an attempt to promote his latest music video.
The clip posted to social media instantly gained tons of attention as he seemed to cook up, and then inject, heroin to “note its short-term side effects.”
One user said: “Bishop Nehru had assistance from Nas, MF DOOM, and Wu-Tang Clan and now he’s sticking in needles for clickbait. This is sad.”
Bishop responded to the flood of comments on the YouTube video, saying, “It’s just art. Wait until I explain all of this. I love y’all and hope y’all are safe.”
Social media users pointed out that it’s likely the rapper didn’t actually inject the drugs into his arm, as the needle appears to miss his arm in the video.
