Everything to Know About Ice Spice

Ice Spice was shocked at first when she got the nickname "The People's Princess," but she's grown to love her comparisons to the late Diana Spencer.

"I saw all of my supporters being like, 'She's the People’s Princess! She's Princess Diana!' At first, I was confused," she recalled to Billboard. "I was like, 'Um, Princess Diana? Out of everybody?' But [then] I was like, ‘F--k it, she's iconic.' "

So is Ice Spice. Her combination of her signature style (that ginger hair!), effortless flow and instantly hashtag-able lines ("Munch," anyone?) made her a household name in less than two years since dropping her first track.

Here's what to know about the delightful Ice Spice, including Ice Spice's net worth in 2023.

How did Ice Spice get big?

Ice Spice dreamed of becoming a rapper since she was a child: Her father was an underground rapper, which helped spark her passion, and she credits her mother for introducing her to The Secret and manifesting success.

Ice Spice leveraged TikTok to launch her hip-hop career. In 2021, she released her first single, "Bully Freestyle." However, it was only after a clip of her doing the "Buss It" challenge went viral that she got the attention she deserved for her music, leveraging the platform to promote her craft.

“It was so funny—I was already working on my first song ever that I was recording. I had already wrote little raps and s--t before that, [but] it took me a lot to get to recording," she recalled to Billboard. "I was halfway done with it when I did the ‘Buss It’ challenge. When I saw it going so viral, I was like, 'Damn, imagine that was my song I was twerking to!' The next month, I put out my first song and took it from there."

"Munch" and "Bikini Bottom" each went viral, and she landed a record deal—and a Nicki Minaj feature on "Princess Diana."

In May 2023, it was announced Ice Spice would feature on a remix of Taylor Swift's "Karma." The move came as a bit of a surprise for hip-hop heads as well as for Swifties, as Swift's rumored new boyfriend Matty Healy of the 1975 made racially-charged remarks about the rapper in a podcast appearance. (He's since apologized.) In any case, Ice Spice's feature on the pop hit will only further cement her mainstream success and crossover appeal.

How much money has Ice Spice made?

Ice Spice has made an estimated $2 million as of May 2023, though the specifics of her finances haven't been revealed. What we do know is that she and her team, specifically manager James Rosemond Jr., went into negotiations with a lot of hip-hop clout and plenty of business savvy.

"I was privy to a lot of his deal-making, and me being a sponge allowed me to soak up what contracts looked like and how to approach labels," Rosemond told Billboard, adding that he advised Ice Spice to release music on their own first. "Deals came to her—production deals, 360 deals—but they were deals that I knew could be better, and in order to get a better deal, you have to go out and do it yourself," he explained.

Rosemond and Ice Spice released "Bikini Bottom" and "Munch" independently before partnering with Create Music Group to distribute her videos before signing a record deal with 10K Projects and Capitol Records.
