Bishop the Overseer has just released another thought-provoking offering in the form of a new single.

“Unconditional” is the second single release from Bishop's forthcoming album entitled “Nation of Immigrants” and follows the chart-topping single “Runnin Back”, which was featured on BBC Radio by DJ Semtex in his playlist picks “5 Tracks You Need to Know”.

Unconditional’s subtitle “Partus” is the abbreviation of “Partus Sequitur Ventrum” (Latin for “that which is brought forth follows the belly (womb), a legal doctrine concerning the slave or free status of children born in the English royal colonies.

Ratified and incorporated into legislation in the United States in 1662, Partus held that the social status of a child followed that of his or her mother. Thus, any child born to an enslaved woman was born into slavery regardless of the ancestry or citizenship of the father. The principal eliminated financial responsibility of fathers for children born into slavery.

“Unconditional” provides an in-depth synopsis from a have-not’s (common-mans) perspective as to the trials and tribulations a person faces when born impoverished, disenfranchised and without access to capital or resources; and a society that once allowed the father to abscond (avoid) the liability of his children. “Unconditional” discusses the circumstances, from a historical point of view, that still disenfranchise so many people today.

Through his lyricism, as contained within his new commercially recorded release, “Rap Kulture", this Missouri, USA born Master of Ceremony (MC), Bishop The Overseer, sensationalizes his duality of citizenship with the chorus line “Nigeria is in the building so its bound to hit.”

This single follows his previous hit single “Runnin Back”, which was featured on BBC Music by DJ Semtex on his show “5 Tracks You Need To Know.” The son of a Nigerian born Father, and a American born Mother, Bishop unequivocally embraces his duality roots to Nigeria through his collaboration with the Lagos based Silverbird Communications media outlet. Bishop performs his newly written and composed theme song “Rap Kulture” for the Lagos, Nigeria based commercial radio station 93.7 Rhythm FM, which is owned and operated by Silverbird.

The original theme song composition is as a result of a radio interview conducted by the station’s radio show host Raezy Winston for his show “Rap Kulture”; and Winston’s subsequent request for a "behind the scenes" drop introduction (artist radio station reference) and a brief original song performance by Bishop over a original instrumental.

The audio remix version modifies the song composition by removing the radio station reference from the chorus section, adding a chorus overlay and adding a third verse. Four different versions of the song composition is available for consumer consumption. The original audio version is distributed United Masters/Steve Stoute. The original music video version is distributed by Bishop Enterprises Publishing, LLC/BEPC Music and Entertainment Group. The audio remix is distributed by AWAL/Kobalt Music Group. The remix music video version is distributed by Peeksound/FUGA.

The originally composed theme song for the radio show “Rap Kulture” is inspired in-part by the dedication, inspiration and cultivation of authentic Hip-Hop/Rap/R&B which is readily available for consumption, by over 15 million consumers in Lagos, across the station’s platform.

After almost a 3 year hiatus since his last album "The Story of Life My Life", Bishop The Overseer returns with a long-awaited single "Runnin Back". This latest release is responsive to the current political issues being experienced in the United States and throughout the world.

The first verse explicitly discusses and dissects the issue concerning immigration. The second verse analyzes and intrusively opens the door for an honest conversation about addiction and suicide. Notwithstanding the seriousness of the topics being discussed, "Runnin Back" is an intimate love story about the challenges of migrating to a new country seeking life and liberty in the pursuit of happiness; deals with addiction and how it affects the outcome of one's life; and constant tug-of-war between the two in order to maintain self-awareness.

Intimate and laid back, this newly released Contemporary R&B/Hip-Hop Surround Sound recording features smooth vocals, mesmerizing melodic instrumentation with a powerful undertone of the present commentary of the political climate. The lyrics are elegantly garnished, carefully crafted, and thoughtful.

Bishop the Overseer fires off a blistering indictment of #45 with his latest single, "Nation of Immigrants."

In this follow-up to his extended version of Snoh Aalegra's February hit, "Whoa", Bishop the Overseer goes at the Trump administration's divisive policies, covering everything from the children in ICE's detention camps to their repeated attempts to roll back the nation's healthcare coverage - even amidst a pandemic.

The refrain, "44 steps Forward, 45 steps back!" is a clear comparison to Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, whose every legislative legacy Trump is obsessed with tearing down.

The video is a rolling montage of protests both past and present, driving home how little progress we have made as a nation in matters of race and equality.
