The “Munch” star has not been shy about her admiration for Nicki. In an interview with XXL in January, she said: “When I saw Nicki, I was so mesmerized. She’s the first female rapper that I seen. And ever since then, I was kinda set on what I wanted to be.”
Ice Spice dropped her first EP in January titled Like…?. The six-track project, included singles “In Ha Mood,” “Bikini Bottom,” and her breakout single “Munch (Feeln’ U).” She also added new offerings such as “Princess Diana,” “Actin A Smoochie,” and the Lil Tjay-assisted track “Gangsta Boo.”
The “Princess of Rap” has just gotten started. She revealed that she has new music on the way. “I’m going to have 10 songs, something like that or whatever,” she said during an interview per Insider in January. “[It’s] definitely going to be different vibes in there, for sure. I don’t want to talk too much on it because, you feel me? But gotta keep the secret sauce a secret.”
