Ice Spice is the artist that everyone wants to get to know. So much so, that music legend Erykah Badu agreed to sit down with the 22-year-old to discuss her upbringing, the current state of female rap, her relationship status, and more.
Ice Spice and the 51-year-old Badu were joined by Badu’s daughter, Puma Curry. Curry put her mother onto Spice’s music, including her viral debut single, “Munch,” which Badu loves.
We are listening to ‘Munch,’ like, for lunch.
Spice took the time to explain the meaning behind the viral adjective.
A munch is basically like an eater—someone that’s obsessed with you. It could be a hater, too.
“Like a ho. A ho-ass ho,” Badu replied.
Ice Spice Shared Her Rap Inspirations And Divulged Her Dream Collaboration
The 22-year-old revealed that she looks to her environment for inspiration when it comes to writing music. In addition, she keeps the artistry of legends like Lil’ Kim, Nicki Minaj, Foxy Brown, and Remy Ma, at the forefront of her mind.
They’re all huge inspos for me… I live for the girls.
One of Spice’s inspirations is also her dream collaboration: Queen’s rapstress Nicki Minaj.
I have to say Nicki because that’s just like, duh.
“I’m surprised Nicki hasn’t jumped on ‘Munch’ yet,” Badu replies.
She would eat that s**t up, too. But another dream collab is Doja Cat.
The “Munch” Rapper Also Revealed Her Dream Date And Shared Her Relationship Status
When asked what would be her dream night out, the Bronx rapper said that she’s a homebody.
I don’t really like to be out in public doing things like that, especially now. My dream date is chilling at home by ourselves. We’re just smoking, eating, watching movies. You get to know somebody better that way.
The “Bikini Bottom” rapper revealed that she is in fact single, but says she isn’t going out on dates.
I’m not going out on dates because I don’t like to be out in public with people like that. I’m just having fun and being young, period.
Ice Spice Also Spoke On The State Of Female Rap
Even Badu confirmed that the rap girlies are “dominating the [music] industry across the board.”
“Why do you think that is?” she asked Ice Spice.
Because we’re beautiful as f**k. Girls are just easier to look at. If there [are] ten guys in the room, but one girl, we’re all going to look at the girl. We just have this goddess energy about us and the guys don’t have that extra sense. They’re cool, though.
The “Euphoric” rapper also told Badu and Curry that fans can expect a “new body of work” in 2023.
It’s going to include drill tracks, it’s going to have some trap. It might have a surprise in there. And hopefully a feature, but if not, it’s still going to eat regardless. And fire visuals attached with that, too.
Roommates, what do you think of this sit-down?
