Ms. Melodie, the once wife of legendary KRS-One and member of rap group Boogie Down Productions, has passed away. The cause of death is currently unknown, but the 43 year old MC leaves behind her legacy and two sons.
Born Ramona Parker from Brooklyn she was signed to Jive Records in the late 1980’s as one of the first female emcees. She released her album Diva back in 1989 and appeared on the Stop The Violence – Self Destruction collaboration track that same year.
Rest in peace Ms. Melodie and condolences to the Parker family.
