- Drake called out an AI-generated cover song of him rapping Ice Spice’s “Munch” on Friday.
- Fans speculated the two had beef in September 2022 after Drake unfollowed Ice Spice on Instagram.
- Here’s a roundup of their public comments and interactions in the last year.
Ice Spice is relatively new to the rap scene compared to Drake, who catapulted to fame in the early 2010s, but the pair’s interactions have already gone viral across social media.
Fans began to speculate about the two around September 2022 following the release of Ice Spice’s breakthrough song, “Munch,” the month prior. The song skyrocketed Ice Spice to celebrity status, but Drake had already taken notice of the New York native before her massive hit.
Here are all their public interactions so far.
Ice Spice spoke about meeting Drake in August 2022 when she attended OVO Fest
According to The New York Times, Drake spoke highly of Ice Spice’s music in a DM he sent to her and later flew Spice – as well as her manager and producer – out to his annual Toronto-based festival, OVO Fest, in August 2022. While neither spoke out about the meet-up initially, Ice Spice shared details about their interaction in a TikTok interview with Spotify shared one month later.
“I had just landed in L.A. for my GeniusOpen Mic for ‘Munch,’ and he was actually like, ‘Yo, ‘Munch’ is hard and your ‘On the Radar’ freestyle is hard.’ And I was like, ‘Damn, that’s crazy because I’m really in LA about to shoot the Open Mic,” Ice Spice said.
She added that meeting Drake in person was “so cool.”
“Like, he’s mad nice and respectful. We went to OVO Fest. It was exciting because it was like his first time performing in Toronto, I think in like a couple of years,” Ice Spice said. “So it was just a movie. Everybody was excited. The energy was high. Nicki performed, it was lit. Wayne did his thing. That shit was crazy.”
A video of the pair standing together during a show went viral in November 2022.
Fans noticed that soon after Ice Spice attended OVO Fest, Drake unfollowed her on Instagram
Ice Spice addressed Drake unfollowing her in an interview with BET for Rap City in October 2022.
“He did. I don’t know why though,” she said, adding that it was “all love.”
In November 2022, fans believed Drake dissed Ice Spice in a track from his and 21 Savage’s album ‘Her Loss’ – prompting her to respond
In the song “BackOutsideBoyz,” Drake raps: “She a ten tryna rap, it’s good on mute.”
Fans on Twitter began speculating who Drake could be referring to, with some pointing towards Ice Spice after he unfollowed her. She later responded with a cheeky tweet.
“at least ima 10,” she wrote alongside the laughing and shrugging emoji.
She cleared rumors that Drake wrote the line about her during her interview with The Times.

“We’re cool,” Ice Spice said. “We spoke after that a couple times and we’re good. There’s no beef.”
She further confirmed there was no bad blood between them during an “Ebro in the Morning” interview on New York’s Hot 97 radio show that month.
“He didn’t. We spoke about it,” she said. “He said that was not about me.”
She added that Drake appreciated the humorous way she responded to the tweet.
“Like, you know, just being cool about it, not being a weirdo. … We just linked up for when my shit dropped, he was in the city for his shows or whatever,” Ice Spice said. “And we ended up just linking up, and we was chatting. We Gucci, bro.”
