“One of the most exciting, assured hip-hop releases of the year, on which Princess Nokia asserts her claim to the throne” – The Observer
“…hearing her claim her territory, while holding onto self-proclaimed weird girl signifiers feels like its own type of victory”
“Her music does not passively wait to be heard. It is a force that demands its presence be felt.”
“…everyone feels empowered by this tiny Afro-Nuyorican’s body-positive messages.”
Princess Nokia, aka Destiny Frasqueri, has released an 8 minute double-feature for two tracks from her new album 1992 Deluxe. “Bart Simpson / Green Line” was directed by Milah Libin, Destiny’s friend and frequent collaborator. The 8 minute video shows New York City through a young Destiny’s eyes–the rejection and struggles of high school, the innocent debauchery of a neighborhood party, the isolation and contemplation of solo travel on public transportation, and the depth of the friendships we forge in our youth.
On September 8th, via Rough Trade Records, Princess Nokia released 1992 Deluxe, an expanded version of last year’s breakout mixtape 1992, featuring eight brand new tracks (*) which have been fully remastered. The album will be available for the first time on CD and 2xLP on November 10th.
