January 20, 2023….Rising out of the Bronx with a fresh spin, Ice Spice has the rap game in the palm of her manicured hand. Today, she releases her debut EP Like..?, her first release via 10K Projects/Capitol Records.

LISTEN HERE
Named after one of her signature catchphrases, Like..? is the best showcase yet for the 23-year-old artist’s defiant charm, packed with Instagram-caption worthy couplets written by Ice Spice and inventive instrumentals from Ice and her frequent collaborator and EP executive producer RIOTUSA.

Last year saw Ice Spice establish herself as one of the most notable names in the rap game. The New Year’s, 2000, baby came out of 2022 as TikTok’s #1 Emerging Artist of the Year, Vevo’s 2023 DSCVR Artist to Watch, Shazam’s Top 2023 Artist Prediction, Billboard’s Hip Hop Rookie of the month and rounded out 2022 as BET’s Amplified Artist of the month. Today Ice Spice can boast over 168 million global streams and she has received critical praise from The New York TimesPitchforkRolling StoneSpotifyThe FADERREVOLTNPR, and more.

Home to her three breakout viral hits – “Munch (Feelin U),” “Bikini Bottom,” and the recent “In Ha Mood” – Like..? adds three new infectious bangers to the burgeoning Ice Spice canon. “Gangsta Boo with Lil Tjay” is a bass-boosted collaboration with fellow Bronx native Lil Tjay, transforming Diddy’s 2000 hit “I Need A Girl Pt. 2” into a drill love song. “Actin’ A Smoochie” embraces the Jersey club sound that defines the Bronx scene, creating a party anthem that explores another popular bit of NYC slang. The percolating “Princess Diana” combines a signature RIOT melody with some of Ice’s best bars, commenting on her it girl status: “Nowadays I be duckin’ them cameras/And they hot that I’m up on ’em banners/Callin’ my phone but they know I don’t answer/In the hood, I’m like Princess Diana.” 

Like.? arrives hot on the heels of “In Ha Mood,” Ice’s third straight viral hit, which gained traction on social media over the holidays. The hard-hitting single generated over 142k+ video creations on TikTok and 3.5 million Spotify streams in its first few weeks of release. “In Ha Mood” and its trending status should be no surprise–Ice Spice emerged in 2022 and became the most effortlessly viral star in the rap game. In August, the artist shared “Munch (Feelin U),” the runaway hit that helped turn Ice Spice into one of the hottest risers in hip-hop. “Munch” earned universal critical acclaim, earning “Best Song of the Year” mentions in publications like The New York TimesPitchforkRolling StoneBillboardNPRThe Washington Post, and many, many others. Ice Spice followed up “Munch” with the viral single “Bikini Bottom,” which earned over 30 million global audio and video streams and more than 134k TikTok creations.

Ice Spice’s road to stardom accelerated with “Munch,” but she’s been buzzing in NYC for a long time. At age seven she was writing poetry and freestyling, and from there she first gained attention with “No Clarity,” a bite-sized banger that decries the lack of communication in a relationship, and the soul-sampling “Name Of Love,” which Ebro featured as his “discovery of the day” on Apple Music Radio. With more music on the way, the unbothered and effortlessly rising superstar has proved the Bronx born It Girl is here to stay.

Delly has found a way to create moments with his charm and musical talent for years. This time, he decided to do a complete 180 and make a project full of melodies and R&B-leaning tunes. With six tracks, 27Delly was able to satisfy his fans with a 13-minute audio adventure to show a more polished side of the youthful multi-hyphenate. 

Every track on the album presents a new arena for 27Delly to play at the highest level. The project starts with an impressive OTP-produced smash entitled “Hit The Town.” The upbeat bass-heavy banger is a familiar sound for long-time 27Delly fans. Then shortly after, the project leads into Delly’s Billboard-approved track, “Gimmie That.” The Caribbean-themed record is an ode to Delly’s West Indian influences. Tracks like “High Road” and the TRAVI-assisted “Lambo On Fire” help keep the EP’s flow strong. 

27Delly’s involvement in the web3, web2, and crypto space has been heralded over the last year or so. His last single was serviced as an NFT, available now via Glass XYZ.
