Ms. Melodie Has Passed Away

Old school hip-hop fans are definitely in mourning right now.

Former wife of KRS-One and member of BDP (Boogie Down Productions), Ms Melodie, has reportedly passed away.

Born Ramona Scott and christened Ms Melodie by KRS-One, who reportedly liked her flow, the Brooklyn born rapper is probably best known for her appearance on the 1989 Stop the Violence PSA record “Self Destruction.”

However, as a founding member of BDP, Ms Melodie helped write lyrics for the group’s first album and released her own debut record, “Diva.” in 1989.

Now word yet on the cause of death. Ms Melodie is survived by her two sons.


  1. So sad, she had to be pretty young. Probably in her late forties, maybe early fifties.

    RIP. A true rap pioneer.
