Bronx-based producer Riot is the mastermind behind many of Ice Spice’s hit songs, including the recent “Princess Diana” remix featuring Nicki Minaj. As the “Munch (Feelin’ U)” rapper continues to rise, many may be wondering, who is Riot?
Riot, also known as RIOTUSA, is the mastermind behind Ice Spice’s latest hit “Princess Diana” remix featuring Nicki Minaj. He is also the executive producer for Ice’s EP Like..? released on January 20th, 2023.
Riot is best known for working on Ice Spice’s hit single “Munch (Feelin’ U)” and BIGBABYGUCCI’s “16FEVER.”
Born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx, NY, Riot is the son of Hot 97’s DJ Enuff. Riot’s music journey started at a young age, thanks to his father’s influence as a DJ and his mother’s job in the music industry. He also learned to play the drums at eight years old, which he credits as the foundation for his current success.
Riot met Ice Spice while attending SUNY (State University of New York) art school, and convinced her to take rap seriously. He focuses on creating New York drill beats, which he believes are growing and becoming more popular each year. He aims to help Ice Spice become a top girl in the New York drill scene, and with her recent success, she’s well on her way.
Ice Spice has been quickly rising in the rap scene, as she continues to receive praise and attention from fans, including industry professionals such as the Queen of rap, who recently signed her to her new label, Heavy On It. The Bronx rapper has also scored her first top 10 hit, “Boy’s A Liar Pt.2” featuring PinkPantheress, and has recently been featured in Vevo’s 2023 DSCVR Artists to Watch list.
Additionally, Ice Spice has even formed a friendship with Kanye West’s daughter, North, who is a huge fan of her music and style.
