[ Rough Trade / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 10 November 2017
"1992 Deluxe is much more than just a cheap re-release of her breakout 2016 mixtape, it's a complete reimagining. The record features 8 brand new songs that help to cement Princess Nokia as one of the key voices in modern hip hop." - Drowned In Sound
"Her flow has the freewheeling energy of the battle freestyle, and often forgoes narrative in favour of a stream of boastful non-sequiturs about Mortal Kombat and Blue's Clues, but, through sheer force of charisma, her blunt edges still cause major damage. Tracks like Brujas and GOAT are equally arresting, though, for their sharper, steelier focus." - The Guardian
This deluxe edition is an expanded version of last year's breakout mixtape 1992, featuring eight brand new tracks which have been fully remastered.
Princess Nokia - aka New York rapper Destiny Frasqueri - has been releasing music via Youtube and Soundcloud since she was in High School, and slowly bubbling up on the internet, garnering a rabid fan base. Last year, with the self-release of her 1992 mixtape, she catapulted herself to the next level, solidifying her position as one to watch.
Since its release, she's toured the world over, selling out various venues across the globe in mere days, and racked up literally millions of views/listens on her tracks. She is not only a brilliant rapper & lyricist but a feminist icon who is unapologetically herself, and aligns equally with the values of punk rock and riot grrl, '90s R&B, and the best of forward-thinking hip-hop.
