    Ice Spice started her rap career while in college.

    Originally from the Bronx, New York City, Ice Spice, whose real name is Isis Gaston, met with record producer RiotUSA, while she was attending State University of New York at Purchase. It led to her career kicking off in 2021. Before that, however, she had expressed a big interest in hip-hop since she was a young girl. She reportedly would type out lyrics in the note app of her iPhone and practice rapping them out loud after listening to some of her favorite rappers, including Nicki Minaj and Jay-Z.

    Her father was a rapper.

    Ice Spice’s father, who is Black, was an underground rapper while she was growing up, and a lot of her hip-hop interest comes from him.

    “He definitely inspired me to want to record,” she told Paper Magazine in April 2023. She also reflected on being in the studio with her dad when she was a child and admitted that got her excited for a possible career in the music industry.

    In addition to her father, Ice Spice has credited her mother, who is Dominican, for being so accepting of her career aspirations. She referred to her as a “baddie” and once revealed that her parents met at a McDonald’s in the Bronx. When returning to the location, at Fordham Road and Davidson Avenue, for an interview, she pointed out places she grew up.

    “That’s where I lived with my mom and Abuela,” she told Audiomack in 2022, before then pointing to her left and saying, “And that’s where I would stay with my dad and other grandma.”

    Ice Spice’s first hit song went viral on TikTok.

    In late 2022, “Munch (Feelin’ You)” made its way across the popular social media app and paved the way for her other hit songs. Some of them included “Bikini Bottom” and “In Ha Mood.” She went on to release her debut extended play, Like…? on Jan. 20, 2023. Before that, she had released several other songs, including “Bully Freestyle” and “No Clarity” in 2021 and early 2022.

    She identifies as queer.

    In September 2021, she tweeted, “What’s it called when you’re attracted to masculinity in women and femininity in men.” She also filmed a video for Genius after the release of her song “Bikini Bottom,” and discussed the lyrics. At one point, she opened up about her sexuality. “They need to know – we’re here and we’re queer!” she exclaimed, in the video above.

    Ice Spice once modeled for Beyonce’s clothing line.

    On Jan. 27, 2023, she shared a tweet that revealed she was one of the models chosen to promote one of Beyoncé‘s Ivy Park campaigns. The name of it was Park Trail and was released in February 2023. In photos and video, Ice Spice proudly showed off orange ensembles from the collection, including a bodysuit, coat, and jersey-style top.
