Princess Nokia fires a warning shot in ‘Kitana’
Princess Nokia is back at it again with another video and single combo ‘Kitana’, where she spits rapid fire over hard hitting bass drums and shows off her fighting skills.
The lyrics and vocal delivery are fierce. Her flow is rapid, loud and aggressive with lyrics about fighting mixed in with some bragging. ‘Kitana’ refers to the character in the Mortal Kombat games and the name is fitting one-hundred percent, Princess Nokia comes out swinging with a crazy aggressive flow and goes hard.
The production is heavy, starting off with trap horns before dropping the bass kick drums. It’s fast paced and enforces the aggression that is given out in the rapping.
The video is well shot with an interesting mix of aerial and action shots along with the typical rapping shots. The video depicts a fight happening in a basketball court with cuts to Princess Nokia rapping with a bloody face. The video is brutal without needing to go overboard, and it feels appropriate to the song which is really what you need in a well directed music video.
Princess Nokia has knocked it out of the park with this one. We hope she makes a few more of these aggressive bass heavy tracks because they are such a joy to listen to.
