While Nicki Minaj has frequently faced controversy over beefing with the new generation of rappers (i.e. Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, and now, Latto), she evidently has an appreciation for Ice Spice. The Bronx rapper undoubtedly won over the masses in the past six months. The success of "Munch (Feelin' U)" turned her into a generational icon, from her orange hair to her early 2000s-inspired couture. And while Nicki has remained rather quiet when it comes to Spice, she finally acknowledged the "Princess Diana" rapper.
This weekend, fans noticed that Nicki Minaj finally followed Ice Spice. Not only did Nicki follow the Bronx Baddie but she slipped into the comment section of Ice's latest post, which she captioned "thick cus I be eatin oats." Apparently, Nicki's also a big fan of Ice Spice like the rest of us. She finished the lyric in the comments, writing, "Btchs slow so I gif dem a pass. [fire emoji] Nah. Grah!" She added, "No more passes Princess... Let's go!" So, it seems as though a collaboration could be on the way.
Incoming Ice Spice X Nicki Minaj Collab?
Twitter quickly dug up old tweets where Ice Spice appeared to manifest her follow from Nicki Minaj. On Nov. 18th, 2020, she tweeted, "OMG NICKI JUST FOLLOWED ME AGHHHHH!!!" In a subsequent tweet, she clarified that she was just "practicing" for the moment that it happens. Given that Nicki not only followed her but quoted her bars seems like a sign that perhaps, Nicki could be jumping on the "Princess Diana" remix. It wouldn't be surprising since Nicki's also preparing to drop her next studio album soon with "Red Ruby Da Sleeze" kicking off the campaign.
Nicki's acknowledgment of Ice Spice got fans both excited and concerned. One fan wrote, "ik ice spice gon fcking GAG when she sees a nicki follow and reply came her way." However, others felt as though this could lead to some sort of feud down the line. "Nicki Minaj has crowned Ice Spice the Princess of Rap. Ice Spice follows in the footsteps of Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat, BIA, Coi Leray, and JT. How long will this duo last?" another user wrote.
