After releasing a video for “Sugar Honey Iced Tea (S.H.I.T.)” in September, Princess Nokia has now shared two distinctive new singles that show off her unique vocal range. Respectively titled “Green Eggs & Ham” and “Practice,” the songs give varying glimpses into Princess Nokia’s mind, alternating between bubbly and bass-heavy sounds.
The rapper also unveiled two different cover arts for each track, doubling down on the diverging vibes through a series of expressive portraits. For “Green Eggs & Ham,” Princess Nokia is captured in a graphic T-shirt that reads “Everything Is Beautiful,” while her visible nose bleed is a subtle indication of the record’s less-than-flowery themes. And like the name of the single would imply, the lyrics are loaded with catchy Dr. Seuss-inspired raps, while brash bars like “f*ck these cops” (repeated three times) contrast against the bouncy flow.
Conversely, the artist flaunts a black tee featuring the phrase “Everything Sucks” for the “Practice” cover art. Like the darker message itself, Princess Nokia takes a much harder approach for the track, opting for trap drums on the beat and exclaiming things like “I brought punk to hip-hop, I brought weird to the block.”
The singles were shared alongside the announcement that she will be dropping two albums this month, which are expected to be delivered on February 26.
