Ice Spice Turned Down 2023 Freshman Class Cover

Ice Spice went from viral sensation to the Met Gala red carpet in a year. The Bronx native has three Top 10 songs in 2023, making her a top contender for Best New Artist. Ice Spice fans were surprised she wasn’t in the 2023 XXL Freshman Class. TMZ reports that the 23-year-old Capitol artist declined the magazine’s annual cover offer.

Per the outlet TMZ,

Ice Spice skipped being a Freshman,

She declined the spot due to a busy festival schedule and guest features. Ice Spice could be like other up-and-comers who didn’t make XXL Freshman but still became superstars. Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyler, The Creator, Post Malone, Cardi B, and more weren’t on the cover for different reasons.

Those who did take the 2023 XXL Freshman Class offer include Finesse2tymes, Lola Brooke, Rob49, Fridayy, GloRilla, 2Rare, SleazyWorld Go, Central Cee, Real Boston Richey, Luh Tyler, TiaCorine, and DC The Don.

Do you think Ice Spice not being on the 2023 XXL cover will hurt her career? Is the cover as relevant as it has been in past years? Why or why not?
