It’s funny this LP is a mix of focused tracks and coincidence. Tracks like achievements and options I made while being here in Dallas to really capture the feeling of starting this new chapter of my life, but not forgetting the ultimate goal. Make my stamp in the world of music. So it was a mix of that and my belief of not wasting music. After tragically losing my hard drive and a bunch of work that was on it. I felt the need to put out some of my favorite songs that I had somewhat of a final version of. Hence the name lost files.

What drove you to become an artist?

Just the way my life was designed honestly. My dad being a jazz drummer and me playing violin at a young age, I knew I always was meant to do something music related. As I followed that path I would continue to strengthen my skills and broaden my network. Guess I’m just a natural artist.

What is your most memorable moment as an artist?

So far probably my show at the well known Brooklyn venue, Baby’s Alright. It was a full house and the energy was unforgettable.

We’ve noticed that you enjoy mixing up several moods and styles in your music, how would you define your own sub-genre?

I’ve been trying to find a name for it, but honestly I just think it’s my spin on hip hop. Tiing hop is what we’re gonna call it.

What artists have influenced you the most?

Too many small influences for there to be a most. This question always gets to me lol. Maybe the median of lil Wayne, Kanye, and NERD?

What’s next for Tiing?

Continuing to take my career to the next level. I keep making singles, I really want to get into music licensing/syncing. Gotta get my music on tv.

Thank You!

Ice Spice’s Super Bowl Spectacle Goes Up in Flames, Michael Blackson’s Roast Takes Center Stage

Michael Blackson didn’t hold back when expressing his disappointment with Ice Spice‘s performance at Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party. The comedian took to Instagram to share his thoughts, quipping, “Tell the frozen spice girl to stop singing to me; I have a dashiki that’s older than her.” Blackson even posted footage of Spice rapping and twerking, capturing his unimpressed expression, and fans joined in with their own critiques.

“So she’s a stripper with a microphone. Got it,” remarked one hater, while another concurred, “Imagine your music being so trash you have to show your nakedness so we can forget that your music is trash 🗑️.”

Despite the less-than-stellar performance, Ice Spice was among the lineup at Rubin’s event, which also featured performances by Travis Scott and Quavo. The annual tradition leads up to Super Bowl LVIII, where the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are set to face off. Usher is slated to headline the Halftime Show, with the 49ers entering the game as slight favorites.

In a surprising turn, Ice Spice’s full Super Bowl ad for Starry’s has been unveiled. The ad features Spice getting cozy with the soda brand’s animated mascots until her “ex-boyfriend” tries to win her back. When rejected, the man’s head explosively transforms into a soda fountain. Titled “It’s Time To See Other Sodas,” the ad dropped on February 2 but held no clues about Spice’s real love life, contrary to some gossip sites’ beliefs.

This isn’t Spice’s first venture into food and drink advertising. Before her Super Bowl ad stint, she was seen in Dunkin commercials. Last year, Spice collaborated with Ben Affleck to promote her limited-time signature drink at the coffee chain. The Ice Spice Munchkins Drink’s first ad aired during the VMAs on September 12, featuring Affleck and Spice brainstorming names for the drink in a playful spot with Affleck embracing his Boston accent while Spice plays the straight woman.
