CRITIC REVIEWS

Drowned in Sound

1992 Deluxe is much more than just a cheap re-release of her breakout 2016 mixtape, it’s a complete reimagining.

The Guardian
Over gorgeous beats that range from head-nodding old-school loops to a vogueish kind of haunted industrial emo-trap, Princess Nokia asserts ownership of every part of her being.

The Skinny
Princess Nokia is a formidable, charismatic MC; her voice cool, her rhymes cocky. Although the album ostensibly feels like an extended diss to a fragile, flamboyant masculinity that has dominated hip-hop for decades, there are many stories that bolster Nokia's underdog appeal.

The Needle Drop

New York rapper and underground fashion icon Princess Nokia expands her 2016 EP into a 16-track monster via Rough Trade Records. One of the most eclectic rappers out right now.

Biggest surprise in recent hip hop, and one of the most slept on rappers of last year. ABCs of New York, while it may sound childish in the beginning, evolves into one of the most impressive and charismatic songs on the album. The only other album I feel I could compare to 1992 Deluxe is (the featured) Wiki's No Mountains in Manhattan.

There are three aspects in my opinion, that make for an exceptional artist: quality of sound, artistic intent and charisma.

Quality of sound, pertains to the depth and fluidness of production, i.e. how well bass, string, synths, percussion, vocals, and etc., are mixed and orchestrated to provide gratifying noise.

Artistic intent, is the meticulously curated ethos in an artist's work. It is what the work is intended to represent and accomplish aside from being a product of the industry, which ... read more
