Ice Spice was noticeably absent from the XXL Freshman 2023 announcement on Wednesday — a shocker, for sure, and a side effect of her immense popularity this year.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Sources connected to the situation tell TMZ Hip Hop … Ice had to decline a spot on the annual magazine cover after she started getting blitzed with festival bookings, and feature requests … making it difficult to lock in for the Freshman requirements.
She’s also secured a “Teen Vogue” cover and is scheduled for Wireless Fest in the UK, Broccoli City Fest in D.C, Blockfest in Finland, and Made in America in Philly — all of the shows coming this summer!!!
And we’re told she won’t be slacking on rehearsing ahead of each festival appearance.
