Ice Spice appears to be back in Drake's good graces.

Drake has re-followed Bronx rapper Ice Spice on Instagram, as caught by The Shade Room. Drake unfollowed the up-and-coming rapper in September after inviting her to OVO Fest, earlier that year. He also seemed to be dissing her on the Her Loss track “BackOutsideBoyz.” He rapped, “She a ten tryna rap, it’s good on mute, yeah.” Although unconfirmed, fans assumed the lyric was a reference to Spice. She responded to the controversy on Twitter at the time by joking, "at least ima 10."

When Drake originally unfollowed Ice Spice, she admitted that she took note, although Spice added that it's still “all love” between them. “He did [unfollow],” she said on BET’s Rap City 22. “I don’t know why though.”

Spice also recalled the first time that Drake messaged her on social media. “So, when he first hit me up, I had just landed in LAX for my Munch Open Mic, right?” she told host DJ Blue Diamond. “And, he was like, ‘Yo, ‘Munch’ is hard. You’re On the Radar freestyle was hard.’ And, I was like, ‘Damn, like, can I post this with the release date? And, he was like, ‘Yeah, yeah. Thanks for asking. Matter of fact, you should come to OVO Fest.’”

As for how her time at OVO Fest ended up going, she discussed the trip with RapCaviar in an interview afterward. “He’s mad nice and respectful," Spice said of Drake. "We went to OVO Fest. It was exciting because it was like his first time performing in Toronto, I think in like a couple of years. So it was just a movie, everybody was excited. The energy was high. Nicki [Minaj] performed, it was lit. [Lil] Wayne did his thing. That shit was crazy.”

On the music front, Spice and PinkPantheress' "Boy's a Liar, Pt. 2" moved up to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. The ranking is the highest of both artists' careers. It was also the week's most-streamed song.
