"Hate to burst your bubble, bitch. I'm that weird girl that's runnin' shit," Princess Nokia announces on her latest single, "G.O.A.T." The New York native is back and ready to ride--literally. In the clip, which she co-directed with Milah Libin, Nokia rides around in a bright red three-wheeler while she flows through the track.
Born Destiny Frasqueri, the rapper's new song coincides with her move to Rough Trade Records and caps off a string of transformations over her short career. In the seven years since releasing her first song on SoundCloud, she's gone by the names Wavy Spice and Destiny before settling on her artistic alter ego, Princess Nokia. She's also gained acclaim as an LGBTQ advocate--she started the first LGBTQ peer group at her Catholic high school and has since become a fixture in queer New York nightlife.
"G.O.A.T." follows the rapper's 2016 mixtape 1992 and comes on the eve of tour stops that include Afropunk, FYF and more. Check out the video, below.
