"New" Artist of the Month for November 2022


Female rapper Ice Spice was born Isis Gaston on January 1st, 2000. Born in the Bronx and raised in a family of Dominican and African-American heritage, Ice Spice took a liking to rap and hip hop when she was seven after listening to rappers like Nicki Minaj.

Ice Spice began her music career in 2021 when she launched her song debut, Bully. She began gaining popularity on SoundCloud and Instagram with the release of her song Name of Love, a song she dropped for 2022 Valentine’s Day. Her latest release, Munch (Fellin’ U), was launched along with a music video produced by Riot and went viral after receiving support from Drake, who played it on his Sirius XM radio station, Sound 42. She just signed a record deal with 10K Projects this past September after being featured on the song One Time by B-Lovee.
