Melo D fell in love with music as a toddler, and began collecting records around age 4: "I would beg my parents to take me to the record store every weekend and buy me 45's. The Bee Gees, Queen, The Eagles, Donna Summer, and then onto New Order, Madonna, Run DMC, The Beastie Boys, Slick Rick, and Public Enemy. There was always a new song out and I HAD to have the record. I couldn't get enough. I still have all of my records to this day."
