Five Minutes With: Toronto Rap Artist Melo Griffith

Melo Griffith is an alternative Rap and Indie R&B artist using hypnotic voicing and colourful lyricism to bend the lines of contemporary hip-hop creativity. Born & Raised in the GTA and moulded in Ottawa, Melo has learned to mix smooth blues and funk influences with a raw adaptation of the inner city Toronto Rap Sound. His ability to use bedroom dream tones and powerful expressions to build world-like soundscapes is where we truly find a Vivid Imagination Being Evolved by Melo-VIBE.
