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. In the meantime, check out the accompanying visual for “Green Eggs & Ham” in the video above, and scroll below to stream the track, as well as “Practice” now.
