Bronx rapper Ice Spice brings slick flows and abundant attitude on powerful drill beats. She started rapping in 2021 and was signed to Virgin subsidiary label 10K Projects the next year on the strength of her viral track “Munch (Feelin’ U).” Capitalizing on her overnight success, Ice Spice compiled several singles and some new material into EP release Like..?, which she released in January of 2023.
Ice Spice was born Isis Gaston and grew up in the Bronx. She enjoyed rap growing up but didn’t start rapping herself until her early twenties, when she began collaborating with producer Cook Babes while they both were attending SUNY Purchase. Babes produced Ice Spice’s debut song, “Bully,” which was released in early 2021. Her breakthrough track, “Munch (Feelin’ U),” arrived in August of the next year and was lauded by Drake, who played the song on his Sirius XM radio channel. The song went viral, and Ice Spice inked a deal with 10K Projects. Her next single, “Bikini Bottom,” was released in September 2022. In January of 2023, EP Like..? was released, featuring three previously issued songs and three new ones. Lil Tjay showed up for a feature on one of the new tracks, “Gangsta Boo.” The EP cracked the Top 50 of the Billboard 200 chart, rising as high as the number 37 slot. ~ TiVo Staff
