MC Mell‘O’ is a UK hip-hop legend. The Battersea-born rapper first made his mark as part of several dance troupes throwing down in Covent Garden, prior to exploding into rhyme, initially as part of the Jus Badd crew. His steely presence secured a solo deal with Rough Trade’s Republic imprint, Mell‘O’wasting little time in laying down a clear marker with 1989’s super rare Comin’ Correct EP. But that was the calm before the storm of his debut solo LP THOUGHTS RELEASED (REVELATION I) – a hugely accomplished set that still defines British hip-hop to this day. In a break from the norm, Mell‘O’ split the original vinyl LP into two distinct halves. The first catered directly to the straight- up rap fiend, yet Mell‘O’ showed another, more enduring dimension on the flip, peddling positivity by the pound. This expanded edition comes with 6 bonus tracks, including all 3 main features from Comin’ Correct.
