Regarding her days before fame, she explained, “We were just in college creating things. Everything just happened naturally. It doesn’t feel that long ago either. I still very much feel like a girl from Fordham. I remember everything. Everything is still the same because it wasn’t that long ago.”
She also touched on her relationship with her producer RiotUSA, saying, “It’s so hard to explain. It just works. Sometimes you meet a great collaborator and you just do great things.”
Ice also discussed how working with her idol Nicki Minaj came from a certain type of manifestation, stating, “When I first met Nicki I was at her studio. I was nervous to get there but once I got there I was chillin’. She came to me and she hugged me and I started crying. For me, it mostly felt like a full-circle moment. I’m really here. Little me is screaming. It felt like such an accomplishment.”
Spice dropped by Zane’s studio to promote the new deluxe edition of her EP, Like..?, which features four brand new tracks—including the highly anticipated “Deli.” The record, which marked the rapper’s debut EP, was released in January and has racked up over 879 million combined global streams since. “How High?,” “Butterfly Ku,” and “On The Radar” are also featured as bonus tracks, adding new future hits to the already acclaimed project.
The expanded version of Like..? follows Ice Spice teaming up with two of music’s biggest names in recent months. First, the rapper featured on a remix of Taylor Swift’s “Karma” and performed the new version with the superstar at one of her MetLife Stadium stops on The Eras tour.
Then, the newcomer reunited with Nicki Minaj on “Barbie World,” taken from the soundtrack of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie and reimagining the original “Barbie Girl” by Aqua, which arrived 25 years ago. The pair previously worked together on a remix of Ice’s “Princess Diana,” which also features on Like..? (Deluxe Edition).
