A new vibe for the New York native, Princess Nokia releases a new mixtape tuning into her emo side. If you’ve already been a fan, however, you know this is nothing new for this afro-indigenous artist. In an recent interview with Dazed, Nokia describes her latest work as “real alternative music”. With many rappers like Lil Uzi Vert, Rico Nasty, Lil Pump and more, putting out dark, emotional projects, 2018 may be the hip hop-emo crossover that we need. Even though Princess Nokia explained in her recent interview with Dazed, that emo has been our shit all along. “Black people created punk – the band Death was way before The Ramones. Same with Bad Brains. If you think about it, the wool has been pulled over our eyes. This is our shit,” Nokia explained in the interview.
Princess Nokia also released a visual to one of her singles on the mixtape Your Eyes Are Bleeding
Our personal favorites on the tape are Look Up Kid, At The Top (which has more of a hip hop crossover vibe in our opinion), and Little Angel.
