SNOW HILL, N.C. (WNCT) – Be sure to set your DVR this weekend for the Grammy’s; you may see a familiar face.
Rap artist and Snow Hill native Rapsody is up for 2 awards.
Rapsody, once only known as Marlanna Evans, comes from a very big family in a very small town.
But her mother said that is the key to keeping her grounded.
Rapsody’s mother Margaret said the artist’s first passion was playing basketball and hanging out with friends and family.
Then one day Margaret heard a song and realized her daughter was the one on the track.
She said you can feel her daughters personality through her music.
“She was the sweetest and still is the sweetest,” said Margaret Evans. “She would do anything for anybody. She would go out of her way she was just so special.”
Rapsody is up for two awards, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song.
Margaret Evans said win or lose on Sunday night, she knows her daughter is paving the way for other young women hoping to break into the industry.
