Bilingual rapper and singer Claudia Feliciano, who goes by the name Snow tha Product, switches between hardened rhymes and bright melodic hooks with an emphasis on the former.
Easily mistaken for a drug reference, Feliciano's performing alias was inspired instead by Disney
character Snow White and the artist's desire to prevent her musical and personal lives from blurring into one another. Born in San Jose and raised in San Diego, she appeared as Claudia White on "Alguien," a 2009 single by Latin pop artist Jaime Kohen
, prior to basing herself out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. For several years, she was an underground artist, though she eventually attracted some high-level guest appearances on her mixtape releases, including the likes of Tech N9ne
and Ty Dolla $ign
. In 2013, she went aboveground and started issuing singles for major-label Atlantic
, such as "Play," "Doing Fine," and "Hola," which alternated between pop-oriented material and more aggressive, lighter-hearted tracks tailored for club play. In 2016, Atlantic
released an eight-track EP, Half Way There...,Pt. 1. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
