Erica Banks recently returned the praise she received from Ice Spice on Twitter. Ice Spice had discussed making a viral "Buss It” TikTok challenge during an interview with Billboard. The New York rapper explained that Banks' hit song inspired her to release her first track.
“It was so funny — I was already working on my first song ever that I was recording. I had already wrote little raps and sh-t before that, [but] it took me a lot to get to recording. I was halfway done with it when I did the ‘Buss It’ challenge. When I saw it going so viral, I was like, ‘Damn, imagine that was my song I was twerking to.’ The next month, I put out my first song and took it from there.”

"She's everything," Banks responded to the interview while adding several heart-eyed emojis. Ice Spice has been in the midst of a massive rise since releasing her break-out hit, "Munch (Feelin’ U)," back in August 2022. She recently teamed up with Nicki Minaj for "Princess Diana."
Speaking further with Billboard, Ice Spice remarked that Nicki is one of her idols. RIOTUSA, one of her producers, added, “I’m listening to her. Who’s her idol? Nicki, Nicki, Nicki, Nicki, Nicki. My thing is, how do I get her Nicki? And it’s being persistent. It took months to get Nicki on board, and it happened."
