SNoW Tha PRoDuCT`s "UNoRTHoDoX 0.5 MiXTaPe"...

Even though I`m a lil` on the late side with this one I`ve gotta give some shout outs to the BiG homie DiRTee BooGZ for puttin` me on to this joint. I hadn`t actually listened to any of Snow Tha Product`s music until he hooked me up with this lil` mixtape that originally dropped back in 2011. It`s titled "Unorthodox 0.5" & is hosted by DJ Whoo Kid & is mixed by DJ Rapid Ric. It`s basically a promo pre-album mixtape that she dropped to help generate a buzz for her 2011 independently released debut album titled "Unorthodox"...

For those that may not be familiar with Snow Tha Product I will give you all the info` that I know about her. She was born in San Jose & her roots are Mexican, even though a lot of folks confuse her for being just another White female rapper (maybe it`s her name). She moved to San Diego & started rappin` & taking it serious at around 17-18 years old, even though her mother wanted her to continue her schooling (she was in college studying to be a social worker). Originally she was going by the name Snow White Tha Product, but decided to switch it up to Snow Tha Product because Disney was going to sue her if she didn`t since they own the rights to "Snow White & The Seven Dwarves"...

She stayed on her grind for a few years, doing shows & building her skills. Then in October of 2011 she released her debut album "Unorthodox" independently. She started to make some noise with a few joints off the album. "Woke Wednesday" & "Drunk Love [Rmx]" were getting major views on YouTube, but it was actually a much shorter track that was really helping her get noticed & that joint was titled "Holy Shit". On that song she showed the listeners that she`s got a nice rapid~spit firing flow & she`s not afraid to flex it. Eventually all her hard work paid off because the buzz that the album was generating helped her get noticed by 3 major record labels...

Universal, Sony & Atlantic all began to holla at her, she eventually signed on with Atlantic. In December of 2012 she dropped her highly awaited mixtape titled "Good Nights & Bad Mornings". It spawned the singles (not sure if you can really consider `em singles though since they`re from a mixtape, but anyway you get what I mean) "Cookie Cutter Bitches", "Lord Be With You" & "Damn It". She followed up that mixtape with it`s sequel in October of 2013 titled "Good Nights & Bad Mornings 2: The Hangover". So that`s pretty much all that I know about her, she`s definitely a talented emcee. She can flex the lyrics like a real emcee should (peep "Woke Wednesday" or "Bet You Won`t") & she spits them rapid~fire flows as an added bonus ("Holy Shit"). She can drop deep emotional & heart~felt ish ("Till Death"), comedic stuff ("Telemundo") & even the party type vibes ("Good Girls"). So she`s definitely a well rounded artist, my opinion of course. A much needed breath of fresh air compared to the many run of the mill type female rappers that have been steppin` on the scene in the last 4 or 5 years anyway. I`m lookin` forward to hearing more music from her, so do ya`self a favor & check out the tunes & listen for yourself...
