Princess Nokia – aka New York rapper Destiny Frasqueri – has been releasing music via YouTube and Soundcloud since she was in High School. She catapulted herself to the next level with last year’s critically acclaimed rap opus 1992 Deluxe, selling out venues across the globe and steadily gaining tens of millions of streams.

Now this shapeshifting emcee returns with a brand new collection of songs titled A Girl Cried Red, a self-described “emo mixtape” which will undoubtedly cement her place in the Alternative underground as well as the Hip-Hop world.

Drawing on influences as varied as the introverted acoustic sounds of Elliott Smith to the bombastic pop-punk energy of Paramore, A Girl Cried Red showcases another fully formed side of Destiny that still taps into the uncompromising feminist ideology of Princess Nokia.
