Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Melymel is ready to put her country’s female rap game on the map!
Coming through to Power 106 for our exclusive Now You Know segment, Mel speaks on her biggest musical influences, the importance of her culture in her music, and what she hopes her fans take away her story.
Making her debut back in 2005, Melymel gained the respect from her male rap counter-parts, who crowned her as “La Mama De Rap,” being the only DR female rapper holding the title.
To be a female in an environment where it’s pretty much male dominated, it was like “ok, that’s her and she’s the only one right now.”
MellyMel also talks the making of her music “IDGAF” video and who she’s choosing between Pac and Biggie.
