“It is a competition at the end of the day,” Ice Spice said. “People want to be all ‘I’m a girl’s girl,’ but then behind the scenes being bitches. Basically, we here, the girls, are doing amazing. I’m excited to see it. I feel like the competition is what keeps us all excited because I think we all secretly enjoy competing and seeing who put that s**t on better and who’s gon’ get the most views.”

She added, “I can be transparent, and I know the competition is checking on me too, which is why it’s OK to say that. Because it’s like, ‘Yeah, girl, I’m watching you and I know you watching me.’ And boys are watching too, because they be secretly haters. But everybody today is competing with everybody no matter if you a boy, girl, nonbinary, whatever it is. You still checking in on your competition. That’s in every industry.”

One artist that’s been vocal about female rap and the politics behind it, is Los Angeles-based female rapper, songwriter, and film producer Helecia Choyce, better known as SKG. Entering the music industry at thirteen and being discovered by Suge Knight in 2001, SKG signed a major deal with Death Row Records. Her track “Let em Have it” on Tupac Shakur’s “Until The End of Time” went to #4 on the charts, earning her a Platinum Plaque for previous work at the Legendary “Death Row Records” and also receiving her plaques for her present work with BLAKDOUT Records, SKG is proving that any artist can re brand themselves while working hard to create a name within the music industry.

“I do agree with Ice Spice in regards to how some female rappers act” SKG said.

“I understand to some it’s competition, so they have a competitive attitude, but for someone like me I’m not trying to really compete against other female rappers. I’m really a fan of female rap both independent and mainstream. I just love seeing the ladies win. This industry was male dominated for so long, watching Nicki, Cardi, Meg, Ice Spice, Glorilla, Sexyy Red kick the door down should be inspiring to all female rappers. I feel it’s enough for everyone to win and at the end of the day we aren’t taking any of this with us once we leave this earth. It’s better to genuinely cheer and clap for people and to move with grace”.

Ice Spice’s progression has been noticeable and she continues to count wins. She’s just been nominated for four Grammys, which was announced by the Recording Academy on Friday (Nov. 10)

Over the summer, she had two songs, “Karma (Remix)” with Taylor Swift, and the Nicki Minaj collab “Barbie Girl,” in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. Most recently, she is coming off winning Best New Artist at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. Ice is currently prepping to go on Doja Cat’s Scarlet Tour, which kicked off on Halloween.

“Ice Spice deserves her flowers for the hard work she’s put in to making a name for herself in this male dominated industry” SKG said.

This achievement ties the Detroit rap icon with legends Bruce Springsteen, Barbra Streisand, and Kanye West for the fifth-most No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200. The only artists ahead of them are Drake (13 No. 1 albums), Jay-Z and Taylor Swift (14 each), and The Beatles (19).
