Melodie most memorable rap verse was on the single of the hit Self Destruction. She raps: “I’m Ms. Melodie and I’m a born again rebel/The violence in rap must cease and seckle/If we want to develop and grow to another level/We can’t be guinea pigs for the devil/The enemy knows, they’re no fools/Because everyone knows that hip-hop rules/So we gotta get a grip and grab what’s wrong/The opposition is weak and rap is strong.”

Rest in Peace Ms. Melodie.
