Ice Spice Says She Spoke to Drake About Rumored ‘BackOutsideBoyz’ Diss
Ice Spice has addressed the rumor that Drake dissed her on his song, "BackOutsideBoyz," from his latest project, Her Loss.
In an interview with Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, which debuted on YouTube on Friday (Jan. 27), Ice Spice revealed that she spoke to Drake about the rumored "BackOutsideBoyz" diss. On the song, Drizzy raps, "She a 10 tryna rap, it’s good on mute." Many fans believed that the Toronto rap star was referring to Spice, but that wasn't the case.
"He didn't [diss me]. We spoke about it. He said that was not about me," she told radio hosts Ebro, Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg at the 15-minute mark in the video below.
Spice added that Drake also appreciated her snarky comeback to the diss rumors on Twitter. "At least ima 10 [woman shrugging her shoulder emoji] [tears of joy emoji]," she tweeted back in November of 2022.
"Yeah, and he also appreciated that, too, just like being cool about it [and] not being a weirdo like because, you know, people [could take it out of context]," she said.
In August of last year, Ice Spice met with Drake in Toronto when he invited her out to his OVO Fest performance. Video of her attending the show with her producer RiotUSA went viral because fans thought there was awkward tension between Ice Spice and Drake, who was standing further behind Ice and Riot. The clip fueled the fire that there was some kind of issue between Ice and Drake, leading to a possible diss from the latter, but as she tells, that's not true.
Also in the Hot 97 interview, Spice mentioned that she attended Drake's Apollo Theater concert in New York last weekend where she experienced a good vibe. The 23-year-old rhymer also revealed that she met with Drizzy prior to the NYC event and had a cordial meeting.
"We ended up linking up and just we was just chatting. Like we gucci, bro," she stated.
Ice Spice is currently on a promo run for her just-released Like..? EP. The Bronx baddie noted in her Hot 97 interview that her fans seem to love "Princess Diana" off the project.
