Standout: “Ain’t My Style”
Also check out: “Genius” ft. Mac Miller
And: “Check Out Melodee”
Name: MC Melodee
Age: Twenty Something
Most people don’t know I: Finished my studies at a University. In Holland I am considered a doctor. I got my degree man (laughs.)
My style and skills have been compared to: A blend of MC Lyte and Lauryn Hill. Style-wise, people compare me to Shiela E. A combination of vintage hip-hop elements with some new flash. Very colorful at times. Street but also sexy.
My standout records and moments to date have been: Well I went on tour with Stones Throw in Europe which was ill. I also toured in Japan. On my most recent mixtape Check Out Melodee I did a collaboration with Mac Miller titled “Genius.” In the states I have performed on Q-Tip’s Night at Santos in NYC, at CMJ and SXSW.
I’d like to work with: A lot of dope artists. Chuck Inglish & Mikey Rocks for instance. Pac Div is also dope. Next to that I would love to work with dope artists like Madlib, Dam Funk, Jose James, and the list goes on.
My goal in hip-hop is: To keep it alive and spread the feel good vibe that I bring while creating music. I love the rawness of hip-hop and the soulful incorporation of different sounds in production. I would love to continue to emphasize those elements in hip-hop.
I’m gonna be the next: Queen of Holland? (laughs) I don’t like to compare myself to other emcees. People say MC Lyte. Others say I will be like M.I.A. I am more focused on being a better version on myself. MC Melodee 2.0. I am just getting started.
