Princess Nokia

1992 DELUXE: Vinyl 2LP


There’s something about Princess Nokia’s ‘1992 Deluxe’, which suggests the birth of an important artist, a watershed moment for hip hop perhaps? The New York rapper has a lot to get off her chest and stands toe to toe with some of the current best rappers today with socially aware lyrics, takes on race issues and being a tomboy. The beats are heavy, the grooves are addictive and it’s packed with attitude.
