There is something to be said about what it takes to be a true artist in modern times. It is a craftsmanship which takes time, discipline, and skill to master. Since the age of seven, Chesapeake, VA’s Melvin “Melofresh” Blackwell has been perusing music as a rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, and trumpet player. His recent college years at Hampton University have been spent mastering the art of filmmaking as a director, writer, and actor. His new short musical film Gimmy With a G is a highly anticipated release which highlights his creativity along with his dedication. Watch as Melofresh stars and directs in this 20-minute short film about a town looking to a worldwide superstar in hopes of finding the wearabouts of urban legend Gimmy With a G. The film features acting and dancing from many HU students and even a cameo from yours truly.  Very few other artists who dabble into the music and film worlds. So next time you mention Kanye West or Tyler, the Creator, add Melofresh to the list!
