Princess Nokia Announces A Double LP With The Jazzy ‘Green Eggs & Ham’ Video

It’s been three years since the release of Princess Nokia‘s breakout record 1992 Deluxe and the rapper is getting ready for its follow-up on short notice. The rapper will debut two new LPs, Everything Is Beautiful and Everything Sucks on Wednesday. But before the record’s release, the rapper unveiled a colorful video to the jazz-inflected single “Green Eggs & Ham.”

Directed by Sebastian Sdaigui, Nokia re-lives her childhood in the video accompanying the brief track. Inspired by a scene in the 1996 film Matilda, Nokia makes herself breakfast with the command of her pointer finger. The “Green Eggs & Ham” lyrics also nod to the rapper’s childhood. “Have you told your parents that you loved them lately? / I look like my mama / In the 1980’s / If I been bad / Well, please, forgive me,” she raps over upbeat piano chords.

Nokia’s two albums arrive following a handful of singles from the rapper. Nokia previously debuted the tracks “Practice,” “Balenciaga,” and “Sugar Honey Iced Tea.” According to a statement, Everything Is Beautiful was recorded over the course of two years and is a “representation of the sensitive, feminine side of the gender-fluid artist.”
