Who Is Jennaske? New Details On Newest Cast Member Of 'Love & Hip Hop: New York'

Who is Jennaske? That's the question that's been on everybody's mind since it was announced that she would be the newest cast member of the "OG" Love & Hip Hop (specifically, Love & Hip Hop: New York). She raps like Nicki, looks like Ciara, and, apparently, brings more drama than Nene, Eva, and Kenya combined!

Born in Queens, NY, Jennaske began as a strip club dancer and choreographer. Her "big break" came in the form of a popular rapper, Desiigner, who spotted her in a strip club and invited her on his stage to perform with him. 

Since then, she's established herself on many levels, and, more specifically, as a rapper who is a force to be reckoned with in the New York City music scene. She appeared on a track by Vee The Ruler called "Krazy" last year, and has been steadily building her fanbase ever since.

But what else do we know about this Love & Hip Hop: New York newcomer? Let's look at what we know about Jennaske so far. 

1. After she was "discovered," she was a choreographer for other popular rappers and even started a rap career of her own.

Jennaske's "big break" courtesy of Desiinger led to some other pretty sweet gigs for her. She said she served as the choreographer for people like Remy Ma, Rotimi, and Mr. Vegas after Desiigner invited her onstage. Nice job, girlfriend!

She also has a bit of a rap career of her own; in addition to the guest spot on the Vee The Ruler track, she also has dropped a few freestyles to keep the audiences interested, prompting comparisons to Nicki Minaj. 

2. She's one of the "newcomers" on the reality series.

When the 10th season of Love & Hip Hop: New York was announced, much ado was made about the fact that the season included OGs. That means that many of the original cast members (such as Dipset rapper Jim Jones, and "urban model" Tahiry) were slated to return. (Whatever else can be said about the "OGs," one thing is clear: it was they who kicked off the Love & Hip Hop franchise into becoming the juggernaut that it is today.)

Jennaske, however, is considered one of the "newcomers" on the show. 

3. There promises to be a lot of drama on this upcoming season.

Naturally, with so many OGs returning to the mix, there is plenty of drama that's sure to be had in the upcoming 10th season, which is being filmed in Brooklyn. Reports from the set say some of the OGs are "holding on to beefs" that date all the way back to 2011. (Make like Elsa from Frozen and... you know the rest.)

It should be interesting to see how Jennaske adds to the mix.

4. In addition to Jennaske, there's one other newcomer to Love & Hip Hop: New York.

The 10th season of Love & Hip Hop: New York will premiere on December 16th, 2019, at 8 PM EST on VH1. In addition to Jennaske, one other newcomer is slated to appear on the season: the rapper Phresher, who last made waves with his single "Wait A Minute," (which featured another Love & Hip Hop: New York cast member, Remy Ma). 

5. She's a Sagittarius.

Tracking down information about Jennaske is a bit tricky. Despite her few "percolations" from the underground, little else is known about her (for example, there's no evidence of her real name!).

What is known about her, however, is that she's a Sagittarius, born on December 19, 1996

6. She appears in the "Snot Thot" music video.

"Thot" is a slang phrase used in the hip hop community to denote a woman who has many sexual relationships (put another way, it's an acronym for "That H*e Over There" and, sometimes, "Thirsty H*es Over There"). The term, which was first popularized in a Chief Keef song, has since become common parlance in the hip hop world. 

This, then, brings us to the "Snot Thot." Rapper Kodak Black (who, really, has his own set of issues) dropped the song last month, and it's, well... exactly as you think it would be. There is, however, a notable person in the video: Jennaske! We can see her up front and center, looking remarkably like Ciara, and twerking away happily. 

For some reason, though, Jennaske's appearance in the "Snot Thot" video is considered her "big break," which seems a bit unfair.  Whatever the case, we're definitely going to learn more about Jennaske when Love & Hip Hop: New York returns on December 16th.
