Demaris Says Ice Spice Has Zero To No Talent On Rory & Mal Podcast

Ice Spice is undoubtedly one of the most sought after female rappers at the moment. She was hailed by Jon Caramanica of The New York Times as “rap’s new princess”, and was named a “breakout star” by Time magazine

However, there are few questions on her supposed privilege. In a new episode of Rory & Mal’s podcast, the team debated whether Ice Spice would be as successful if she was dark-skinned.

Rory does not believe she would be. “If we saying that colorism doesn’t exist because a dark-skinned girl could never soar the way that f-cking Ice Spice did off having zero to no talent,” producer Demaris said.

Rory was surprised to hear her say Ice Spice lacked talent. “I think she’s a talented person, rap wouldn’t be it, but there’s a talent there,” Rory argued.

Demaris continued, “If she was dark-skinned she would not be as big as she is. That’s what I said. That’s not taking anything away from her.”

Ice Spice grew up in the Bronx, New York City, and began her career in 2021 after meeting record producer RiotUSA while attending State University of New York at Purchase. She rose to prominence in late 2022 with her song “Munch (Feelin’ U)”.

The release of her singles “Bikini Bottom” and “In Ha Mood”, preceded her debut extended play Like..? (2023). In 2023, she achieved her first US Billboard Hot 100 chart entry with the Lil Tjay collaboration “Gangsta Boo”; and her remix singles “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” (with PinkPantheress) and “Princess Diana” (with Nicki Minaj) reached the top five.
