The Rise of Ice Spice and Nicki Minaj From Underground to Mainstream

Recently, the underground hip hop scene has experienced several fascinating eras. Newcomers emerged seemingly overnight to topple established artists and introduce music fans to a whole new wave of hip hop.

Ice Spice and Nicki Minaj's recent rise is no different; thanks to viral hits and impressive co-signs, these Bronx female rappers have quickly become household names. Now, with a newly released remix of "Princess Diana," their dynamic duo could take it even further!

How They Got Their Start

Ice Spice has been on an ascendant trajectory ever since she first made waves with her viral hit "Munch (Feeling U)." In October 2022, she released her debut EP Like.? which featured "Princess Diana." With this six-track project under her belt, 21-year old Ice Spice established herself as one of Hip Hop's breakout stars for 2023.

Ice Spice recently gave an interview to XXL magazine and revealed that much of her success can be credited to Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj's influence in her craft. Though both women have long histories in rap music, Ice Spice was first inspired by Minaj to start writing lyrics herself.

Therefore, she ranks The Pinkprint among her all-time favorites albums and continues to appreciate Queen MC.

Nicki Minaj has officially joined Ice Spice's "Princess Diana," co-signing and remixing the song under her own name. This collaboration has already proven a major win for both women femcees, connecting over RIOTUSA's bubbly drill-pop beat and producing an eye-catching pink Barbie dream house music video which perfectly depicts them both.

Ice Spice's remix of Princess Diana has amassed over 57 million plays on Spotify; additionally, its accompanying music video has amassed 25 million views.

Ice Spice's collaboration may or may not be the catalyst that launches her to superstardom, but fans cannot wait to see what's in store for them next. She has big plans for her career in 2023, which may make her one of the best acts to keep an eye out for.

She quickly amassed a loyal following in New York, garnering her numerous honors along the way, such as being featured as Dazed magazine's cover girl. Additionally, the young rapper amassed thousands of hits since her debut.

Her recent viral hit, RIOT USA-produced "Princess Diana," is a self-deprecating tribute to her own success and has already hit number one on iTunes.

Ice Spice's music has garnered immense praise from both fans and critics, but Nicki Minaj was instrumental in getting her where she is today. They have become great friends; recently Nicki raved over Ice's cover in Dazed Magazine; even quoting some of Ice's "Princess Diana" lyrics back at her!

Ice Spice's latest track is one of their best yet; featuring everything from an electric bass line to catchy lyrics that complement each other well, plus two talented rappers who compliment one another beautifully.
