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.

Northern Transmissions
Despite being her first full-length release, at 16 songs that showcase a level of skill that many of the scene’s top rappers took years to reach, Frasqueri will be sweeping the industry in a few years from now.

The sound of New York is occasionally absent on 1992—in moments, her Migos-like repetitive hooks and regionless hashtag punchlines move it somewhere a bit less rooted—but Frasqueri’s loved for the city never wanes.

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.

A friend of mine recommended this record to me and honestly i was surprised how much fun and engaging this was. Princess Nokia debut LP "1992 Deluxe" shows the new york rapper have a distinct style that goes back to early acts such as Lil Kim, Foxy Brown and Gangsta Bu. This is a hard hitting trap rap record that Princess Nokia herself manipulates her rapping vocals going upper register and lower vocals within the track-list. I'm not going lie, alot of people will probably dismiss ... read more
