EDITORS’ NOTES

On 1992 Deluxe, Princess Nokia bloodies eardrums with steady word combinations, illuminating the Big Apple's African and Nuyorican diasporas. Self-identity and self-preservation are major themes. She manages stress levels (“Kitana”), gives a shout-out to rebel girls (“Tomboy”), and recalls her come-up (“Goth Kid,” “G.O.A.T.”). There are nods to current trends with a skittering hi-hat or two, but 1992 Deluxe is a rugged, underground affair—all baggy pants and Timbs—capable of making a mid-'90s backpacker weep with reverence.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

The Rapper I've Been Dreaming Of

As a nerdy brown girl growing up in Washington Heights, Princess Nokia is the rapper I was always dreaming of listening to. She is the real deal with her uplifting energy, unapologetic self-love, and an ally for all peoples. You MUST listen to this album.

Princess Nokia is doing amazing things for women and women of color and her music is amazing, her shows soul-nurturing, and her words inspiring. Love her and see her every chance I get.
