NICE TO SEE YOU GIRLS GETTING ALONG
Now let's be real, usually female mcs look at each other as competition and do not get along all the time. In my personal opinion Nicki Minaj is the best female rapper since Lauryn Hill who has become somewhat of an enigma or rare species like Andre 3 Stacks from OutKast.
The two collaborators (Nicki and Ice Spice) have several songs together now "Princess Diana" and "Barbie World" which both did great on the charts and made noise on the radio as of late. Nicki Minaj has grinded since the mixtape days and it is dope to see her with the newest drill rapping sensation Ice Spice. I will keep it tall as possible with you when I say I did not care for Ice Spices song "MUNCH" but she proved herself to me when I heard the song "In Ha Mood" which can't seem to escape my head.
Let's talk about Ice Spice for a second. Her look is what's very important because she appears to have a ginger look and is reminiscent of a orphan Annie from the hood. I knew she was on her way when she was on moving Billboards on Crenshaw in Los Angeles. When Kanye Wests daughter started drawing her on her notepad and posting it online the two met and well it's only been up from there for Ice Spice.
Ice Spice recently opened up to the press about how Nicki Minaj has become somewhat of a mentor to her. “She be telling me to learn from her mistakes – just watching her in general, if you pay close enough attention, you gonna see what you should do,” “I love to talk to her about things that I can’t talk about publicly – it just means so much to be able to have somebody like her.” She’s so sweet – I was so obsessed with how humble she was and willing to work. She gives me so much advice – we talk all the time and she’s so funny… But I can’t say what she be telling me.” Ice Spice has gone as far as calling Nicki Minaj "the Queen," which she is. The reason Nicki gets this praise from me is she writes all of her bars, has a great work ethic, and lastly is very calculated. She knows who to work with and who not to. Sounds familiar like the underappreciated white guy in rap who works with Dr. Dre (but that's another story.) Let's hope we get a EP from the two collaborators as they continue their rise in hip hop. Salute to both of them and I'm out. Peace.
