Harlem-based rapper Princess Nokia releases her 1992 Deluxe album via Rough Trade Records.

This deluxe edition is an expanded version of last year’s breakout mixtape 1992, featuring eight brand new tracks which have been fully remastered. This is the first time it has had a physical release. 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, from her weave (“It’s mine, I bought it” she says, adding to Solange in the canon of anti-hair-touching classics) to her “little titties and fat belly”. 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. (Guardian)
