Spicing up 2023, trending rapper Ice Spice released her new EP ‘Like..?’ The EP contains six songs including three of her previous hit tracks “In Ha Mood,” “Bikini Bottom,” and “Munch (Feelin’ U),” as well as three new tracks “Princess Diana,” “Actin A Smoochie,” and “Gangsta Boo.” While this release was mostly a surprise for her fans, the 23-year-old told Apple Music that the six featured tracks were ones she already had under her belt. Additionally, she expressed that she does not want to rush into other projects or sounds and let her music develop naturally.
Growing up, the Bronx native had a natural interest in music, poetry, and freestyling, all becoming hobbies of hers throughout school. Once entering college, the young rapper gained some attention after her “Buss It” challenge on Tik Tok, and shortly after gained a following on Instagram from her music releases at the time. In addition, she had been working consistently with producer RIOTUSA whom she met when attending SUNY Purchase.
Deemed as “Rap’s New Princess” according to the New York Times, Ice Spice, born Isis Gaston, started trending on Tik Tok just last year with her hit track “Munch (Feelin’ U).” More specifically, the phrase “You thought I was feelin’ you?” a line from the song, became popular on the app. From there, she gained a large following and her music spread across the app, quickly rising her to stardom.
As of right now, Gaston plans to continue promoting her EP, so take a listen below and be sure to keep up with her future releases: This is just the beginning for Ice Spice!
