DJ Ted Smooth has unveiled a new remix of Scar Lip's "This Is New York," which features added vocals from the late Biggie Smalls. He announced the remix to fans on his Instagram last week, who flooded his comments section with fire emojis. The mashup isn't the first time "This Is New York" got a remix. Scar Lip's Snoop Dogg collab "This Is Cali" dropped just last month.
Recently, Scar Lip credited her famous supporters for the success she's seen as of late. She discussed in her interview with VladTV how shoutouts from Boosie Badazz, Cardi B, and even Shaquille O'Neal boosted her career. “When Boosie reposted me, it felt like I had a shot,” she revealed. “That’s when motion started coming in. His push, [and] his co-sign, got me a lot of press…that shit helped my career a lot.” She went on to share her feelings on Cardi B posting her song on social media. “I couldn’t believe that..that post changed my life,” Scar Lip recalled, “I love her so much.” She went on to further praise Cardi, explaining, “She started from the bottom and raised her way to the top, [and] anybody that feels a way about that…you’re just weird. Everybody starts from the bottom. How could you not be inspired?”
Biggie Joins Scar Lip In New Remix
The 22-year-old revealed how she got Snoop Dogg to collaborate with her in May. She shared screenshots of Instagram DMs between her and Snoop, where she writes, "Hey Snoop, 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.” After not receiving a reply, she followed up with “Hey Snoop you think u can get on my remix?” Snoop Dogg then told her, "F*ck yes," and the rest was history.
Scar Lip also just recently signed to Epic Records. Her new label-mate, Swizz Beatz, previously described similarities he sees between the young rapper and the late DMX. “I honestly feel like DMX sent Scar Lip my way because she’s too much of his energy,” he told The Breakfast Club. He went on to say, “she’s amazing and [has] a great heart the same way X had a great heart.”
