Ms. Melodie Passes Away

Ms. Melodie

Ms. Melodie, member of the legendary Boogie Down Productions crew and ex-wife of BDP founder KRS-ONE, has passed away.

The Brooklyn native born Ramona Parker was signed to Jive Records where she released her debut album Diva back in 1989. Ms Melodie carved a name for herself in the hip-hop circuit thanks to memorable songs such as "Hype According To Ms. Melodie" and "Live On Stage." One of Melodie's latter appearances took place in the classic BDP led "Stop The Violence" video for the song "Self Destruction."

No cause of death has been revealed. She is survived by two sons, and the rap pioneer will definitely be missed by the hip-hop community.
