Melanie Fiona "One More Chance (Remix)" [Notorious B.I.G. Cover]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

I love these Melanie Fiona D.I.Y. covers she's been releasing via her youtube page as of late. With this past Tuesday marking the 40th born day of the late great Notorious B.I.G., Melanie appropriately remixes his classic hit "One More Chance." Says Mel: "Happy Birthday BIG... Inspired by your life....This is one of my ALL TIME FAV HIP HOP SONGS & RAPPERS.... Off the cuff....middle of the night urges. xo." Reppin' the borough proper with a Brooklyn Nets fitted on, watch Mel craft the layers, drop the bars, and add her own touch on the hook. The MF Life is definitely still getting burn, but these vids have been a nice bridge 'til we start getting more new music from the songstress. Vids like this and her recent letter to Lauryn Hill (not to mention her obvious talent) really highlight why Ms. Fiona is such a lovable artist.
