Lil Mama Brings Down the Doll House in ‘Scrawberry’ Video
Lil Mama is back with a new jam. Flavor? No, it’s not strawberry but ‘Scrawberry.’ The 21-year-old Brooklynite rapper and ‘America’s Best Dance Crew‘ judge just dropped a playful new video — directed by Phil Lee — for the oddly titled track.
While Lil Mama channels great femcee MC Lyte, the entertainer and her crew act as dolls with attitude, dancing to a sample of Special ED‘s ‘I Got It Made’ instrumental while inside a miniature doll house. All of this goes down as a little girl watches through a tiny window.
After overcoming challenges and dealing with her mother’s passing from breast cancer, the ‘Lip Gloss’ hit-maker returns anew, with attitude.
Though she’s making a rap comeback, we can’t tell if Lil Mama’s just having a little fun or if she’s consciously making a subtle visual dig at fellow female rapper Nicki Minaj. The ‘Voice of the Young People’ creator recently revealed that she doesn’t get inspiration for her life from paying attention to what she sees or hears. With her mention of the word “chain” and “doll” — Nicki Minaj sports a Barbie chain — it seems she has some beef with the Young Money MC.
“I don’t look at TV or listen to radio and say, ‘I’m gonna be a h– now,’ or ‘Oh, I’m gonna do this now,’ or ‘I’m gonna talk like this or ‘I’m gonna get a tattoo that says ‘I’m a doll,’ or ‘I’m gonna get a chain that says ‘I’m a doll.’ I’m Lil Mama til the day I die.”
