The 27-year-old rapper aims to take home the title of Miss S.H.I.T. 2019 in her new video.

Everyone has dreamed of what it would be like to win the crown in a beauty pageant. So Princess Nokia made that fantasy a gorgeous, sarcastic reality. 

On Monday (Sept. 16), the rapper debuted a music video for her brand new music video "Sugar Honey Iced Tea (S.H.I.T.)," a slowed-down hip-hop jam that sees Nokia flexing on her haters, letting them know who is, well, the S.H.I.T. "How you want what I have? You ain't workin' yourself/ That toxic energy shit ain't really good for your health," she raps. 

In the video, directed by Emma Westenberg, we see Nokia strolling into the Miss S.H.I.T. beauty pageant, unphased by her competitors. After getting ready for her performance, the star takes to the pageant stage in a scantily-clad feather and rhinestone look, giving the judges an interpretive dance. To no one's surprise, Nokia takes home the title and is crowned Miss S.H.I.T. 2019, which she then passes off to a young fan at the video's end. 

According to a press release, the video was inspired by Nokia's upbringing in New York City ball culture, thus the campy and fashionable pageant. Also, throughout the video, Nokia's friend and frequent collaborator Maliibu Miitch appears, helping the rapper get ready for her pageant domination.
