"Btchs slow so I gih dem a pass. Nah. Grah! No more passes Princess... Let's go," the "Moment 4 Life" rapper wrote, referencing lyrics from Ice Spice's song "Princess Diana."

Ice Spice spotted Nicki's tweet and Instagram story and reshared both, writing: "ya heard da QUEEN."

Ice Spice has made no secret of her admiration for Nicki Minaj.

In an interview with XXL in January, she said: "When I saw Nicki, I was so mesmerized. She's the first female rapper that I seen. And ever since then, I was kinda set on what I wanted to be."

In a separate interview with ELLE in February, she named Nicki's 2014 project "The Pinkprint" as one of her favorite albums.

Ice Spice dropped her debut EP, "Like..?" in January.

The six-track project, which was executively produced by RIOTUSA, peaked at No. 37 on the Billboard 200 and No. 19 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

The Bronx native is now gearing up for the release of her debut album, which she is aiming to drop this year.

"I'm going to have 10 songs, something like that or whatever," she said during an interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1 in January. "[It's] definitely going to be different vibes in there, for sure. I don't want to talk too much on it because, you feel me? But gotta keep the secret sauce a secret."
