Is Ice Spice “Biting” Nicki Minaj’s Flow on New ‘Y2K!’ Track?



Ice Spice is preparing to release her debut album, Y2K!, set to drop on July 26. In anticipation, she’s been engaging fans with teasers of unreleased tracks, including an Instagram video shared on Monday, June 17, where she addressed her imitators.

In the video, Ice rapped:

“Name got the b**ch gaggin’/ Hit the bench up and tagged in/ B**ch, you lost, throw the flag in/ Stay on a jet, but ain’t laggin’.” She continued with more pointed lyrics: “Got these b**ches copying my pose/ Got these b**ches biting all my flows/ Like ballerinas, keep ’em on their toes/ And I really write, like f**k a ghost.”

While Ice Spice’s broad accusations of “biting” were evident, many fans noted that the upcoming track felt reminiscent of Nicki Minaj. One comment, which received over 9,000 likes, stated, “I thought it was Nicki for a second. Like, even the voice.” Another person asked, “Why is it giving Onika Tanya?”

Despite the comparisons, many viewers praised Ice’s lyrical skill. One Instagram user wrote, “She definitely heard y’all in the comments talking about her flow ‘cause she ate.” Another fan shared, “I’m so hyped for the album. The songs are getting better and better.”


The rollout for Y2K! has not been without controversy. Earlier this month, Ice addressed criticism of the album artwork, which was shot and designed by David LaChapelle.

“[He’s so] sweet [and] legendary. He didn’t even charge me [because] he f**ks [with] a real b*tch,” Ice said of the photographer. “Thank [you] for all the incredible art you’ve put out through the years. This cover means everything to me [and] yes, ‘Y2K’ was placed on the trash can on purpose. Can [you] guess why?”

Ahead of the album, Ice released “Think U The S**t? (Fart)” and “Gimmie a Light,” with the former reaching No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
