She also won a Video Music Award (VMA) in 2017 for her appearance on Lin Manuel Miranda’s song “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done).”.
In a recent interview with CNN, Snow said she encountered a lot of skepticism and doubts from her peers when she first began her journey.
“It was like ‘You’re a Mexican chick from Cali, what do you know about rapping?’ I’m glad I stuck with it,” she said.
Snow, who identifies as lesbian, uses her large platform to speak up about immigration and other social justice issues.
“Putting the medicine into the candy,” is how she describes some of the messages in her lyrics.
“Congratulations to Snow Tha Product on her first Latin Grammy nomination! No manager, no label, she produces all her songs and videos. Independent, and she’s killing the Spanish rap game,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
