Fans are going to be surprised by Ice Spice’s new ‘Like..? ‘ EP

Fans are going to be surprised by Ice Spice’s new ‘Like..? ‘ EP

Earlier today (January 20), Ice Spice dropped a new surprise project titled Like…? As part of the offering, she has included six tracks, including several of her viral hits, such as, “Munch (Feelin’ U)” and “Bikini Bottom.” Taking its name from one of her infamous ad-libs, the EP counts only one guest appearance from Lil Tjay, a guest appearance on the track “Gangsta Boo.” On the said track, the 23-year-old artist Ice Spice makes use of the sample of “I Need A Girl (Pt. 2)” by Diddy:

“It all started when I made the song ‘Gangsta Boo,’ then I thought about who I would want to hear on it, really,” Ice Spice said during an interview that appeared on Apple Music 1 recently “On the other hand, I wanted to make sure this was a true collaborative effort. Do you feel what I am saying? I have been friends with him since last year, so I thought he was the most appropriate person to make that decision. We both come from the Bronx, and we are both very close friends. Despite the loss, I recorded the song before she (Gangsta Boo) passed away. Actually, it was just before that. I therefore agree with the statement. The timing was exactly right, and it was a very sad coincidence.”

It was not long ago that the New York-raised rapper made waves on the drill scene when she released tracks like “Bully (Freestyle)” and “No Clarity.” As the year 2022 progressed, it was apparent that she had hit her stride as she gradually released more music, dropping tracks like “Be A Lady” and “Euphoric,” which both were released at the same time. During the emergence of her new hit song, “Munch (Feelin’ U),” which was co-signed by Drake, she gained a worldwide following.

The streets of New York City are buzzing with excitement as the latest homegrown musical sensation, Ice Spice, etches her name into the annals of the Big Apple’s history. In an unprecedented move, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has joined forces with Capitol Records to unleash a limited edition of 50,000 MetroCards emblazoned with the striking visage of the Bronx-born rapper.

A Meteoric Rise to Stardom

At just 24 years old, Ice Spice has already captivated the hearts of countless fans with her unapologetic lyricism and undeniable charisma. Hailing from the gritty streets of the Bronx, her meteoric rise to stardom is a testament to her raw talent and unwavering dedication to her craft.

A Coveted Collectible for Fans

The release of the Ice Spice MetroCards has sent shockwaves through the city, with fans clamoring to get their hands on this coveted collectible. Beginning on May 13th, these limited-edition cards became available for purchase at four strategically chosen subway stations: Fordham Road 4 station, Fordham Road B/D station, 34-Street–Penn Station A/C/E station, and the iconic Times Square–42nd Street N/Q/R/W/S/1/2/3/7 station.

Feverish Demand and Lengthy Queues

As news of the MetroCard release spread like wildfire, fans flocked to the designated stations, forming serpentine queues that snaked around city blocks. Social media was inundated with footage capturing the feverish demand, with some fans proudly showcasing their newly acquired Ice Spice cards, while others lamented the lengthy lines and sold-out vending machines.

A Nod to New York’s Hip-Hop Legacy

This isn’t the first time the MTA has paid homage to the city’s rich hip-hop heritage. Last year, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, the transit authority unveiled a series of MetroCards featuring iconic portraits of New York City rap legends, including LL Cool J, Pop Smoke, Rakim, and Cam’ron.

A Glimpse into Ice Spice’s Artistic Evolution

As the anticipation for Ice Spice’s debut album, “Y2K,” continues to build, the release of the MetroCards serves as a tantalizing glimpse into the artist’s creative evolution. Earlier this month, she dropped her latest single, “Gimmie the Light,” and its accompanying music video, marking her first official release since the viral sensation “Think U the Sh*t (Fart).”

Paying Homage to Her Roots

Produced by RIOTUSA, “Gimmie the Light” samples Sean Paul’s 2002 hit of the same name, while the visuals feature a pink Range Rover, reportedly belonging to fellow Bronx native and rap icon, Cam’ron. In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, Ice Spice credited her mother as the inspiration behind “Y2K,” saying she embodied the new millennium in its “truest form.”

A Celebration of Authenticity and Individuality

Beyond the hype surrounding the MetroCards, Ice Spice’s rise to prominence represents a broader celebration of authenticity and individuality. Her unapologetic embrace of her roots and unwavering commitment to staying true to herself have resonated with fans worldwide, solidifying her status as a trailblazer in the music industry.

New video for “Ice Spice” from NLE Choppa.

This week saw NLE Choppa celebrate his 20th birthday. This morning (Nov. 4), he decided to gift his fans with a new single titled “Ice Spice,” which was produced by Tay Keith. The song reveals much about the Memphis native’s current situation while making a subtle reference to a certain Bronx newcomer, namely:

“Ice Spice” comes accompanied by a video directed by Evan Water Wippin, and it portrays a day in the life of Choppa through the lens of Water Wippin Evan. Aside from his work in the studio, he can be seen watching basketball games, spending time with his crew at the strip club, and much more on the show.

“ Ice Spice” is the latest release in a series of well-received music releases from the self-proclaimed Top Shotta which also includes tracks like “Slut Me Out,” “Yak Flow,” “Little Miss,” “Set Up Story Part 1,” “In The UK,” “Apart From You,” and “Do It Again” performed by 2rare. In that same timeframe, Choppa has also contributed a considerable amount of work to tracks such as those produced for DDG, OMB Peezy, and Macklemore in the same timeframe. I don’t know what this means, but his last full-length album was released back in January, containing 16 hard-hitting cuts and a number of assist contributions from G Herbo, Moneybagg Yo, Young Thug, and Polo G. Given his current output, we wouldn’t be surprised if we heard about another drop in the near future.
