She only released one album and made a few guest appearances but she was a trailblazer in hip-hop as a positive voice and representation of women. Ms. Melodie was born Ramona Parker in Brooklyn New York, immersed herself in the hip-hop scene and eventually became part of Boogie Down productions. In 1989 she released her debut album, Diva. The cause of death has not been disclosed but she is survived by two sons. She was 43.
RIP Ms. Melodie and thank you for your contribution.
