Ice Spice responds to claims that her success is based off of her skintone.

During a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Ice Spice explains, “I have seen those opinions,” she said, before adding, “I feel like that’s not something personal to me. I feel like that’s been the conversation for generations and forever, since the beginning of time.” She continued, “I try not to feed into negativity because I also see that when people are trying to make that point, it’s not out of a good place. [They end up putting] somebody else down.”

“I’m most proud of staying grounded so far because I’ve already been through so many things that I know a lot of people would’ve lost their f*cking minds,” she explained. “The whole lifestyle change is super drastic, especially coming from where I come from, not coming from sh*t and not having a lot growing up, to now — it’s the complete opposite…. Even though it’s a positive change, it’s still a change.”

Ice Spice previously shut down the stage at our Summer Jam concert. She brought out the likes of FloMilli, Kalii and more. Take a look at her full performance below.
