Snow tha Product Rhymes of Life as a Real Girl in a Fake World, Talks Atlantic Deal
What's one song on there fans can expect?
I have a song called "Real Girl Fake World." With girls, there's so much going on especially now in the information age. On the web, you see what's supposed to be cool, what's supposed to be hot. What you're supposed to look like and everything. Sometimes it's overwhelming and you feel like you're not good enough. That's what I'm representing, just being myself. It's crazy that that seems to be a new lane. It's not really a new lane, people just feel like they have to over-glamorize. People always say it takes so much more money to break a female artist because they have to spend so much money on them. Maybe it doesn't need to be that way, because there are a lot of girls that feel like they're not good enough, and they don't need to do all that extra glamor, glitz and shininess. Just represent what we are. There's always that awkward girl in the back of the class that doesn't feel like she fits in, and that's just what I am I guess.
On your song "Holy Shit," you rap, "Is she white, do she write?" You're speaking about people questioning you. Why did you put that in there?
When people see a female they think it's easier to hate on them. A lot of dudes write a female off, like, "She's whatever." And with a lot of girls, there's that hate thing going on. People are like, "You're not going to be good. You don't write your own stuff." Yes I do. Why is that so hard to believe that a female could write her own [material]? I don't get it. That's why I put that in there. And the white issue... I don't really check comments anymore because I would drive myself crazy, but before when I was really in the MySpace days, you get a lot of "Who's this?"
