TONE: When did you start your grind in the music world and how have your grown since then?
MELO: I started rapping between the ages 7 – 9. At age 13, I started recording music and by the last year of High School my best friend and I were making DJ mix-tapes and selling them in our High School’s. This was around 2002 and that’s when I started recording my first album. Since then I’ve become a well rounded musician. I have alot of work to do and plenty to learn, but I’m making good progress.
