Princess Nokia

1992 Deluxe (ROUGH TRADE)

The Observer - The New Review - - RELEASES - Tara Joshi

The much-hyped MC’s first out­ing on Rough Trade sears with her trade­mark eclec­tic vi­tal­ity. 1992 Deluxe re­vis­its last year’s 1992 mix­tape, with re­mas­ters of orig­i­nal tracks plus seven new songs, all of which find her rap­ping over tan­ta­lis­ing pro­duc­tion with non­cha­lant con­fi­dence – whether it be a love let­ter to her na­tive New York, a bois­ter­ous ode to witch­craft, a cool take­down of peo­ple try­ing to touch her hair, or even a sur­real ren­di­tion of the Fast Food Song to close the al­bum. One of the most ex­cit­ing, as­sured hip-hop re­leases of the year, on which Princess Nokia as­serts her claim to the throne.
