Taking to Instagram to share a DM exchange with the legendary rapper on Thursday (May 11), the Bronx native revealed she not only had a productive business convo with Snoop through DMs – she also hopped on FaceTime with him to seal the deal.
“Hey Snoop,” Scar Lip wrote with a heart emoji in a message she sent on April 20. “I’m a big fan & love your music. I have a song called This is New York and wanted to know if you’d get on the remix.”
While that initially went unanswered, the newcomer remained undeterred and went for it again. “Hey Snoop you think u can get on my remix,” she wrote on May 8, to which he responded the following day with: “Fuck yes.”
The second slide included a screenshot of their on-camera convo, which Scar Lip said in the caption they “FaceTimed and laughed.”

The Snoop co-sign arrives after Scar Lip received praise from fellow Bronx native Cardi B – which left the burgeoning star in tears as she continues to take steps in elevating her career.
At the top of May, Cardi reposted a clip of Scar Lip from The Neighborhood Talk‘s Instagram page showing the young rhymer rocking a black dress and mask ready to partake in the Met Gala celebrations.
“I love her,” Cardi B captioned her Story, sending a heartwarming message of support to Scar Lip.
The rap rookie could barely contain her excitement and quickly posted a video on IG capturing her disbelief, to the point she was tearing up and kneeling on the floor due to Cardi showing her love.
“Cardi B just posted me,” she said while crying tears of joy. “She inspired me. She from The Bronx, bro. I’m from The Bronx. She showed us young girls we could make it and we could be something, bro. I can’t fucking believe this shit. We did it.”
“My dreams just came true @iamcardib just said she loves me I can’t take this,” she added in her caption.
The stamps of approval are starting to pile up as Scar Lip received another major co-sign last month when Swizz Beatz recruited her for his Hip Hop 50: Vol. 2 EP, which saw the 22-year-old rap alongside New York giants Jadakiss and Benny The Butcher on “Take ‘Em Out.”
Rocking New York Knicks gear, the “This Is New York” rapper also appeared on Hot 97 in April to deliver a hard-hitting freestyle for Funk Flex, which only further added to her buzz around the industry.
