Scar Lip, an up and coming new artist from the Bronx, has received a significant endorsement from Snoop Dogg. The icon has agreed to collaborate on the remix of her popular track, "This Is New York." On Thursday, the new rapper shared a direct message conversation with the legend on Instagram. She revealed that they had not only discussed business, but also had a FaceTime call to finalize the agreement.
It all started with a simple slide into Snoop's DMs. Scar Lip sent a message to Snoop Dogg on April 20, saying, "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," followed by a heart emoji.

Scar Lip shared the DM exchange on her Instagram page.
