Missy Dee & The Melody Crew

Missy Dee & the Melody Crew would wind up reaching a similar and somehow more painful fate as the Fabulous 3 MCs, with big promises made and left unfulfilled. Sensing he had something special, Jeremiah brought the Missy Dee tape to Sylvia Robinson at Sugar Hill. Despite initial interest, no contract materialized- at least none that satisfied Jeremiah. Hip-hop was a massive movement and DJs across the five boroughs were craving any new 12" in the style, but "Missy Missy Dee" was effectively suppressed. Not issued until 1983 and never distributed in any form, the wax's scarcity makes it unlikely that anything was done to promote the tunes. The Melody Crew girls did a few shows at block parties and high schools before receding back into the Harlem streets they'd come from.
