Ice Spice is one of the female rappers dominating today’s headlines and music charts.
The Bronx rapper rose to fame with the viral hit “Munch (Feelin’ U)” and has become a global sensation.
She’s also financially savvy, with a net worth of $8 million.
So, let’s look at how Ice Spice made her moolah.
Ice Spice Has A Distinct Musical Style
You don’t become a household name by copying what everyone else is doing.
Ice Spice distinguishes her music by adopting the Bronx drill, which samples older pop, funk, and soul music.
Her inspirations are Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, so picture a blend of today’s fiery hip-hop lyrics with beats inspired from earlier generations.
She’s In Control Of Her Music
We’ve heard of musicians losing royalties for too long because they don’t own their catalog.
Ice Spice has wised up to this.
The rapper secured full rights to her publishing and masters, ensuring she’s in control of her music catalog.
With help from entertainment lawyer Leon Morabia and manager James Rosemond Jr., Spice has complete creative freedom and a significant advantage over other musicians.
Owning her catalog also ensures Ice Spice will only make more money as her career progresses and she releases more albums.
She Does Endorsements And Collaborations
Spice is taking full advantage of her popularity.
She launched the Ice Spice MUNCHKINS® Drink with Dunkin’ Donuts early this year.
The drink blends Pumpkin MUNCHKINS® Donut Hole Treats with Dunkin’s Frozen Coffee for a distinct flavor.
The rapper has also featured with A-list pop stars like Taylor Swift–they collaborated on the song “Karma.”
The Rapper Is Slowly Making Money Moves
The rapper represents a new generation of rappers who are gifted musicians and shrewd businesspeople.
As her brand grows, the rapper will be one of the names to keep an eye on.
