(AllHipHop News) The legendary voice of Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame rapper MC Grandmaster Mele Mel has been utilized for a new short-film on The Beatles, who are celebrating their 50th anniversary this week.
Mele Mel, a member of legendary Hip-Hop group The Furious 5, provides the narration for the short-film The Beatles at their Best, which was released to the public for free today (August 15), to commemorate the group’s anniversary.
The “Beatles at their Best” focuses on the early years of The Beatles, told from an alternate point of view.
“I wanted to narrate ‘The Beatles at their Best’ because like most people I was familiar with the Beatles, but after learning more about their early years, I found it to be one of most interesting, intriguing and under reported stories in the history of music,” Grandmaster Mele Mel told AllHipHop.com in a statement.
The Beatles consisted of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, who replaced the group’s original drummer, Pete Best, for reasons that are still speculated upon, to this very day.
Some claim Pete Best was fired due to his popularity with young female fans, while others claimed the drummer simply did not fit in with the group.
Either way, Mele Mel is calling on the surviving Beatles (Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr) to host an “ex-Beatles Beer Summit” to bring closure to the situation with Pete Best.
“After all these years, it would nice to put these guys together for a hand shake, maybe throw down a beer and bring some finality to this issue,” Mele Mel told AllHipHop.com. “Show that there are no hard feelings, everybody learned something and it all worked out in the end. I think that’s something that all true Beatles fans, especially those familiar with the story, would like to see.”
