It’s apparent upon hearing MC Melodee for the first time that the city of Amsterdam has been hiding an undiscovered HipHop talent within its walls. Lyrically charming [as well as physically striking], MC Melodee is what happens when beauty meets the beat.
A child of the old school teachings of HipHop, her influences stretch as far back as KRS One, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane and more. Even paying homage to the early ’90s Native Tongue movement through the use of electric green, yellow and red paints in her project artworks – the cover art for her recently released My Tape Deck via iTunes is reminiscent to that of Brand Nubian’s album One For All; there’s an obvious respect for the culture and art form as a whole. Out now, the Cookin’ Soul produced project My Tape Deck is a modern day extension of the golden era. Featuring boom bap beats and B-girl confessions, MC Melodee just wants the world to know she’s all about having fun without compromising who she is.
