Ice Spice Says That She Doesn’t Consider Herself A Lyricist & Intentionally Keeps Her Raps Super Simple

Ice Spice is one of Hip Hop’s brightest new stars, but holding herself to the same lyrical standards as some of the game’s greats isn’t something she concerns herself with.

In a new interview with Complex, Ice Spice opened up about her songwriting process, admitting that while her music does contain bars, she purposely keeps her raps “super simple.”

“It’s funny because Hype [Williams] was just trying to call me a lyricist,” she said, referring to the legendary music video director who photographed her cover story. “I wouldn’t consider myself a lyricist. Obviously, lyrics go into music and I do think about them and I do be having bars in my music but they’re just super simple.

“I want them to be digestible, I don’t want them to fly over people’s heads and they never catch it. I want people to hear it right away and be like, ‘OK, that was cute.’ But it’s also fun at the same time.”

Ice Spice’s producer, RiotUSA, added that she doesn’t write down her lyrics. Instead, her approach involves her “freestyling line by line” in the studio.

Ice Spice says that she is more concerned with what music critics have to say about her material:

“They actually study music and care about it, so I feel like I’d rather hear their opinion,” she said. “​​I’m more interested in that because at least it’ll be paragraphs explaining why they feel that way and I’ll be able to understand the person better versus just one little hateful ass comment from a private page. At least there’s an author and a face attached.”
