Joined by Tyga on the show, Wayne’s guest argued for staying connected to the music scene, asserting its importance. However, Wayne expressed reservations about the potential creative pitfalls of trying to conform to current trends at his age. “I don’t listen,” he asserted, “I just go in my little hole. I love what I do, I just put it out and swing for the fences, man.”

As André 3000 pointed out, “I don’t have anything to talk about in that way. I’m 48 years old.” Lil Wayne, on the other hand, emerged as a symbol of resilience, challenging the notion that age dictates the themes of hip hop. The conversation highlights the evolving dynamics within the genre and the ongoing quest for authenticity.

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.
