Scar Lip Teases New Freestyle That Samples “Jenny From The Block”

Emerging Gen Z rap sensation Scar Lip recently teased her forthcoming freestyle on Instagram. The teaser features a surprising twist. It’s a sample from Jennifer Lopez’s iconic hit, “Jenny from the Block.” The snippet was accompanied with a video, which showcased Scar Lip mouthing the freestyle and quite literally on the “block.” Furthermore, for those unacquainted with Scar Lip, she’s been making waves with her distinctive fusion of rap. She carves out a distinct niche in the ever-evolving hip-hop scene. With her upcoming freestyle, she ventures into different territory that’s different from all of her releases thus far.

The decision to sample “Jenny from the Block,” a chart-topping anthem from the early 2000s, serves as a nod to the cyclical nature of music. What once served as a nostalgic anthem for Millennials now is breathing new life into its timeless appeal. However, responses to the freestyle have been mixed. Some are applauding her for continuing to stay consistent and try new things. Others are critiquing the song choice itself and the nature of the video. Considering she also featured children in the video and rapped what some referred to be an inappropriate line: “Just to make a little we be selling rock.”
