Tone Spliff and Melly-Mel met in 2020, the year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tone had just put out a #FreshStyleChallenge to eMCees on his social media platforms and was impressed with Mel's submission.
He decided to collaborate with him on a project, offering Mel the option to cut a joint EP or a full album.
Ecstatically, Melly-Mel chose the album route & the pair produced New People; an LP born out of a new friendship, formed in a tumultuous time.
Throughout both careers, they’ve worked with heavyweight artists such as:
Ruste Juxx, A-F-R-O, Sadat X, Wordsworth, El Da Sensei, Termanology, Skyzoo,
Sean Price, Ras Kass, Akrobatik, Thirstin' Howl 3rd, Royce 5'9, Immortal Technique, R.A. The Rugged Man, Inspectah Deck, King Magnetic, Conway The Machine, Planet Asia, Edo G, Saigon, Apathy, Stu Bangas and countless others.
