Princess Nokia is one the most exciting rappers in the game. Ever since she dropped her “Tomboy” video, fans have been waiting for her to drop a full-length project. Well, it’s finally here. Nokia’s 1992 Deluxe is available for streaming on all digital platforms.
There are 16 songs on the collection and some them represent a fun slice ’90s New York nostalgia. For example, “Chinese Slippers,” inspired by those floral mesh slip-ons that were the footwear rage in the ’90s, is a bouncy track with Nokia spitting freewheeling non sequiturs about turning up at a block party and eating fried chicken and pizza.
The “Jewish, Puerto Rican, and a little bit Italian” rapper gets even more nostalgic on the autobiographical “ABCs New York,” where she recalls her youth growing up in Spanish Harlem and the Lower East Side New York.
Elsewhere, Nokia delivers boastful rhymes on “G.O.A.T.” and “Different” and she gleefully disses her competitors on “Receipts.”
Overall, Nokia’s 1992 Deluxe is lit. This 25-year-old rap phenom possesses a lot girl power on her new project. It’s worth a listen.
