NLE Choppa Suggests Ice Spice Changed Her Number After Texting Him

Nearly a month ago now, Memphis' NLE Choppa joined Jason Lee on his REVOLT podcast to discuss not only his musical work but also his feelings for a certain female rap star. At the time, the "DO IT AGAIN" hitmaker admitted to having a crush on Ice Spice, who he chiefly called "beautiful" while revealing that they were exchanging messages. Rather than sliding in her DMs, Choppa was able to connect with the Bronx baddie via text, apparently to talk about "just music," though things didn't go as far as he was hoping, as Spice apparently changed her number without telling the 20-year-old.

"I don’t text her no more," the recording artist told Lee during their March interview. "She changed her number. So, I watch from a distance. I see she’s doing a lot of big things." More recently, Choppa dropped by The Breakfast Club to promote his new Cottonwood 2 album, at which time hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne couldn't help but ask their guest about Spice. "People change their number!" the southern star defended himself. "Was I part of the reason? I don't know... Probably, you never know."

Tha God then asked Choppa if he was "tryna holler" at the "Bikini Botton" hitmaker while she was only interested in talking business. "No! I was business-oriented, and when I hollered she ain't have no [noise] about it," the lyricist insisted. "You did holler though?" Charlamagne confirmed, not letting the young rhymer escape the question. "Yeah, you know what I mean? Slicky, like... I slid in! I asked her, do she like vegan food? That's probably why she changed her number," NLE speculated, laughing along with TBC hosts.

"She said, 'This n*gga talkin' 'bout vegan food. Let me get his ass off my line. I'm from the Bronx! We don't eat no f*cking vegan food,'" the father of one added, imagining how Spice reacted to his message before swapping out her digits. While NLE Choppa is obviously still hung up on not getting a text back, the 23-year-old rap diva has been busy soaking up the success of her "Princess Diana (Remix)" with Nicki Minaj.
