The Bronx rapper sat down for a special conversation with Erykah Badu and her daughter Puma Curry for Interview Magazine, and mentioned Nicki was one of her inspirations alongside Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown and Remy Ma.
Curry asked Ice who her dream collaboration would be and she named the leader of the Barbs once again before Badu wondered why Nicki hadn’t hopped on “Munch” given her prowess on the mic. Ice Spice also named Doja Cat as a dream collaboration.
“I have to say Nicki because that’s just like, duh,” Ice Spice said while Badu responded: “I’m surprised Nicki hasn’t jumped on ‘Munch’ yet.”
The 22-year-old replied: “She would eat that shit up, too.”
Although Nicki Minaj hasn’t collaborated much with the new crop of artists coming out of her hometown New York City — besides Fivio Foreign — she shouts them out on her Instagram Live feeds. Ice Spice hasn’t gotten any shoutouts from Nicki, but she did get a shoutout and hung out with the Queen rapper’s Young Money brother Drake a few months ago.
During an interview with Rap Caviar in September, Ice explained what hanging out with the 6 God was like.
“When Drake DM’d me, I did not really expect that,” Spice said about the message she received from Drizzy. “I had just landed in L.A. for my Genius Open Mic for ‘Munch,’ and he was actually like, ‘Yo, ‘Munch’ is hard and your On the Radar freestyle is hard.’ And I was like, ‘Damn, that’s crazy because I’m really in L.A. about to shoot the Open Mic.'”
She added: “Linking up with him was so cool. Like, he’s mad nice and respectful. We went to OVO Fest. It was exciting because it was like his first time performing in Toronto, I think in like a couple of years. So it was just a movie, everybody was excited. The energy was high. Nicki [Minaj] performed, it was lit. [Lil] Wayne did his thing. That shit was crazy.”
However, Drake suddenly stopped following Ice Spice on Instagram and fans began wondering if he was speaking about her on the Her Loss track “BackOutsideBoyz.”
“She a 10 tryna rap, it’s good on mute, yeah,” Drizzy raps on the song leaving fans thinking Ice caught a stray. Ice Spice seemingly replied to the line on Twitter saying: “at least ima 10.”
