Melle Mel & Scorpio
Grandmaster Melle Mel and Scorpio (along with group members The Creole Kidd, Keith Cowboy, and Rahiem) created some of the most iconic songs including the platinum-selling classic “The Message”, which became the first Hip Hop record inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as well as the famous anti-drug song “White Lines (Don’t Don’t Do It).” “White Lines” was also covered by Duran Duran in 1995 and peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
“This is history in the making. We’ve seen the evolution of Hip Hop and rap go from a place where there was a lot of naysayers to it being a full-blown respected genre taking over pop culture. This is amazing!” states Scorpio of The Furious 5. “To be successful doing what we love and now joining together to continue to make history is a blessing.”
