MY HOMIES RULE TOO: Melo-X

Melo-X is the epitome of a 21st-century renaissance man. An alchemist of sound and a polymath of many secret arts, Melo can cook up beats as sweet and melancholy as a hot summer flame or dirty as a stolen glance from someone else's g-friend. Aside from being a producer, song writer, MC, vocalist and DJ, Melo is also skilled with the camera and has art directed projects such as Theophilus London's first mixtape JAM! (check his photos here). The latest jewel from the Melo lab is his new mixtape Mustafa's Renaissance which he wrote, produced, and provided most of the vocals for, available for FREE as a download (check the link on the right) featuring other Brooklyn heavyhitters such as Jesse Boykins iii, Theophilus London, Print, Mickey Factz and Nikki Ntu (stay tuned for their joined project coming up this year). Melo's got that Brooklyn swag and he is a true tastemaker (yeah, it's time to acknowledge the real tastemakers of NYC...many of the big stars are swaggerjackers copping underground cats' style and presenting it as their own invention!!!), plus his talent and chill personality are only matched by his dedication to producing dope work... Melo is the real deal! Make sure to stay up on his blog , follow his gig schedule and give him some love on his page.
