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 fanbase. 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. This is powerful,
passionate, outspoken, vibrant modern music with deep roots in both
NYC and rap history.
1992 Deluxe will be released via Rough Trade and is her first ever physical
album; boasting 8 additional brand new songs - her first music since 2016.
This expanded version includes the original 1992 tracks fully remastered
and comes with a beautiful gatefold package.
