It’s All About MM?


Recently Mr Mel the Riddler has been very busy with life in general, but now as the clock ticks and time gets closer for his next album drop “Rated R”; it is back to business. “Rated R” is set to be released on Oct 13th 2015; which will give Mr Mel the Riddler two things to celebrate; his birthday and a album release. With this being said expect things to get a little crazy around Apex Records.

So far “Rated R” is said to be released digitally with heavy promotion/ advertising work. Apex stated that promotion will be so insane that his face will be literally everywhere. Dontavious Dixon (Apex Records CEO) wanted to sell hard copies but instead decided to go full digital. Seeing how sells from “Riddle Me This” were mostly digital; he feels that going full digital is the best way to go. He also stated that if there are hard copies the amount will be very limited.


Apex Records announces the video tapping of Mr Mel the Riddler working on his next album “POV”. Recording will start this week at Apex Records and footage will be placed on YOUTUBE the beginning of next year. This will give fans a new way to see Mr Mel the Riddler and also see what he actually goes through when at the studio with Apex as his engineer; while working on projects. Be prepared to see numerous takes, bloopers, real studio footage and more straight from Apex Records.

What has Apex been up too?:

If you don’t know then you better ask somebody because right now the number one selling album from Apex Records is ApexI’m Just A Machine Part 1”. So far this album has been selling like crazy on the digital markets and physical copies can not stay in stock. This is good because this is the first album in which Apex sought too have a feature or a different feature on every track. The album can be found on Rhapsody, Amazon MP3, Itunes, Emusic, JB Hifi, Spotify and more. If you have not checked it out; I guarantee you that are missing a classic.

Recently Apex has been busy working on Part 2 of “I’m Just A Machine” and also working on his “Social Help EP”. It is hard to say which album will be released in 2014 or if he will be releasing any one of these album in 2014, but Apex told us personally that he has another sin album which will be released Oct 2014 along with plans of opening up a beat website for Apex Studio and Company. So as you can see he has been busy keeping business moving and still finding time to keep music pumping out. We will keep you up dated on the beat website and his releases as we find out more information.

The Riddler working his Craft!:

From month to month the Mr Mel the Riddler has been performing at various locations from The Evening Muse to The Apostrophe Lounge, The Mynt Lounge, Mc Bonies Bar and more. But he has yet to leave his question mark on new fans. So it is back to the studio and putting in work on a new project which he says will really turn the heads and move the masses to his craft. The Riddler’s first album “Riddle Me This” was released April of 2013 and sales are starting to pick up from the shows which he has been performing around the city of Charlotte, NC. But now he is working on a new album which he told us will definantly have everyone in amazement.

A gifted rapper he is; can the Mr Mel the Riddler really make a album which will top his first album and become a statistic to the music indusrty or will be be able to say… Yo Apex take a break and let me run it from here…
