This year's Summer Jam festival in New York was seriously hot, with artists like Cardi B, French Montana, and Lola Brooke taking over the stage. As she nears the one-year anniversary of her breakout single, "Feelin' U (Munch)," Ice Spice also stepped out to give an incredible performance, tapping friends like Flo Milli and Kalii to join her. Many in attendance were happy to see the redhead link up with the Alabama native, but on social media, some argued that it should've been the latter performing the full set with Spice stepping out as a guest feature.

Regardless of what the critics had to say, the 23-year-old had an unforgettable weekend in her hometown, where she also joined Lil Tjay during his set. At the time the duo performed their "Gangsta Boo" joint effort from January's Like..? EP, which has remained in rotation for members of the Spice Cabinet since their favourite rap diva first dropped it. In a video shared to Tjay's Instagram account, he and his fellow New Yorker take turns delivering bars while Spice's bodacious booty peeks out from beneath her mini skirt.

"Bro was looking at the 🍑 the whole time 😂," one user wrote under the young rapper's commemorative post. "Tjay the only valid one to get w/ Ice Spice," someone else suggested, continuing to root for a future relationship between the pair. Considering it was their first time performing "Gangsta Boo" live together the lyricists looked incredibly comfortable, both of them showing great improvement in their stage presence since first starting out.

After their collab came out earlier this year, some thought that Lil Tjay and Ice Spice might be a romantic item. Around Valentine's Day, he gifted her a luxurious Richard Mille, but rumours of a relationship were quickly shut down.
