Ms. Melodie Dead at 48 Years Old

Ms. Melodie of Boogie Down Productions fame has been confirmed dead this afternoon. Anonymous sources confirmed the tragic news to The Urban Daily, although the cause and details are still unknown.

In addition to releasing 1989’s Diva on Jive/Zomba Records, Melodie, a Brooklyn, New York native, appeared on “Self Destruction” from the Stop The Violence Movement. She also appeared on Queen Latifah’s hit

“Ladies First.” A longtime affiliate of B.D.P., Melodie was also the first wife of the group’s front-man, KRS-One. When the pair split in the early 1990s, Melodie stepped away from Hip Hop, as Boogie Down Productions spawned the solo careers of KRS, D-Nice and others.

Melodie was mentioned in Nas’ 2006 song “Where Are They Now?” as the Queens, New York emcee stated, “I hope she packin’ a bankroll.”

Melodie’s passing comes less than two weeks after another late 1980s alum, KMG from Above The Law, also died.
