You won’t see a Princess Nokia billboard on Sunset, but she is a star. Born and raised in New York City, nurtured by that metropolis’s kaleidoscopic array of people, culture and music and championed by progressive communities online, Nokia is a superstar for a group of young people equally devoted to political and socially progressive ideas and hip-hop music that doesn’t suck. Nokia’s latest project, 1992, is an autobiographical work in which she lets you hang with her as she wanders New York, rapping in a husky, conversational style about her life and her ideas on intersectional feminism, self-empowerment, comic books and identity, all set to Lex Luger, DJ Bass Bear and Sound M.O.B. beats. The most illustrative line on the album might simply be, “I just want to have fun and live without fear.”
