J&R gets a taste of uptown history in March, when MC Mele Mel performs in-store. One of the first great hip-hop DJs, and the first to refer to himself as an “MC,” he was instrumental in modern music development. He made history as lead rapper of Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, when he recorded “The Message” in 1982.
