The 48-year-old resurfaced at some event in NYC last week, looking naughty.

Melle Mel

Melvin Glover is his birth name and his brother is fellow musician Kid Creole.

A true pioneer in every sense of the word. "The Message" was one of the first hip hop songs to have undertones of social commentary, as opposed to a dance or party theme. It's a shame we don't have rappers like Melle Mel around today. Hip Hop, Rap, and its culture are truly going downhill.

Its a shame he is not putting out tracks like the message anymore, todays rap music or R&B is run by a tight knit group of producers who seem to like producing the same formula, black guys dressed like gang members, surrounded my girls in bikinis doing this ass shaking thing, flashy cars etc. This doesnt say much for society and degrades women, I love rap and r&b but am getting sick of seeing the same old thing on MTV, something new please Rap and R&B producers.

Nice to see he's still out there, but "The Message" would be lost on today's audiences, as they're into lyrics that talk nothing more than about how much money you have, what kind of car you drive, what gang/clique they're supposedly a member of, what drugs you use, how much gold and/or platinum you have and what kind of house you own, backed up by the worst and most simplistic beats ever, and to have the viewer of whatever crap video made, completely oblivious to the fact that they're really talking about absolutely nothing, by having some mediocre looking girls shaking their butts in your face.

Nothing having to do with "rap" can be considered "music," and to induct these guys into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame is criminal.
