Ice Spice plates a bland EP with ‘Like..?’

One of the most talked about artists right now releases overhyped beats blended with substance.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

There’s no doubt she is a talented rapper with an intriguing curation of beats within her catalogue. So when Ice Spice (real name Isis Gaston) dropped her new EP Like..? there was a scramble to listen to the latest product in her cold spice rack.

Though that withered fast after a rather quick breeze through an EP lasting no more than 12/13 minutes long.

With remodeled drill-esque beats and a pinch of grime for the most part lathered light on snares, its production often felt like a washing machine rotating without significant desire. However, Ice Spice saves it from oblivion with a relaxed delivery that pours breath onto a beat stack that seemed to have fallen short.

That said, as good as she is here, the record cannot be saved from the repetitive content on offer already cut by alternative acts on the market. She gets props for not using autotune and I’m sure she will come harder for an album.
