Mell'O' has toured with many hip hop legends such as Jeru The Damaja, Gang Starr, Cypress Hill, Public Enemy, Queen Latifah, KRS-One, N.W.A., Jungle Brothers and many more. His first recording and release was back in 1987/88 alongside sparring partners Monie Love, DJ Pogo & the legendary Sparki under the name of The Jus Badd crew. Mell'O' has subsequently featured & collaborated on tracks with artists such as African Jazz Legend Manu Dibango, Caron Wheeler, Courtney Pine, Urban Species, Gunshot, Mark B, London Electricity and a great many more.

Mell'o' is one of the UK greats..it's a shame he only had one proper album. A MC of his talents should could have had 4 or 5 classics in his career.
