From Humble Beginnings to World-Renowned Performer

Ice Spice, the rising star from The Bronx, known for her famous song “Munch,” which was even played on Sirius XM radio by Drake, is half black and half Dominican. Born and raised in The Bronx, New York, Ice Spice’s childhood was fun but chaotic. She learned a lot from her experiences, which helped shape her personality. Ice Spice started writing poems and rap lyrics in elementary school, and she maintained her passion for music even when she switched to a Catholic high school.

Initially, her dream was to become an actress, but she soon discovered her passion for volleyball and became an exemplary college school team member. However, this was not her true calling, and after completing her beauty school, Ice Spice finally found her niche- music. Interestingly, her father, an underground rapper, didn’t plan for her to become a rapper at all.

The drill music of artists like Sheff G and Pop Smoke initially inspired Ice Spice’s music, and as she developed as an artist, her inspirations expanded to Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Doja Cat, and Lil Durk. Ice Spice likes to work in her studio with a producer to build and perfect her sound, in contrast to the popular YouTube style with many new artists. She eventually teamed up with producer Riot to record “Bully Freestyle” in March 2021, which helped her gain popularity on SoundCloud and go viral on social media platforms.

From “Bully Freestyle” to “Boys a Liar” – The Viral Journey of Ice Spice

Ice’s song “Name of Love” began her meteoric rise to fame. Her song “Much,” also produced by Riot, became viral, showcasing her unique sound with relatable lyrics. Even Drake played her music on his Sirius XM radio, which helped boost her profile. Recently, in September 2022, Ice Spice collaborated with B-Lovee on the song “One Time,” and this year, she dropped “Boy’s a Liar ” with PinkPantheress and “Princess Diana Remix ” with Niki Minaj. She also worked with Taylor Swift on the “Karma Remix.”

Ice Spice’s music can be described as a blend of drill and hip-hop with a unique and contemporary twist. Her sound is characterized by catchy beats and relatable lyrics that speak to her audience. She lists multiple inspirations but has undoubtedly developed a style that is all her own, quickly leading to her rising popularity in the music industry.

She is committed to her craft and believes that success doesn’t come overnight. Even though she has accomplished so much quickly, Ice Spice remains determined to win a Grammy, her biggest goal. Ice Spice told Audio-Mack that she “expected things to move faster… But I think things are moving at a good pace,” and her unwavering self-belief will surely take her to the heights she hopes to achieve in her career.
