Anyone who knows me should know by now that I’m a HUGE Missy Elliott fan. I’m not a hip-hop head at all, but I love the way Missy rhymes and is so creative with her lyrics. And of course,she’s well known for her iconic music videos over the past nearly 20 years! Who else could make wearing a garbage bag look cool?! I’m pretty convinced that Missy is the reason I loved Adidas and Pumas in high school.
I was beyond thrilled when Missy made a brief comeback at the 2015 SuperBowl with Katy Perry and I thought we’d finally get a new album! Now it’s 2017 and we’re still waiting…but I know that it’ll be great when it finally drops and I’ll be first and line to actually BUY it!
Missy has had so many hits over the year. I love that she is unapologetically Missy! A great performer, singer, rapper, dancer…what’s not to love? Haha! If you’ve never listened to Missy Elliott, I definitely recommend checking her out! As you can imagine, I have a TON of favorite songs and videos!
Hit Em With Da Hee feat. Lil Kim – Love these two together, great way to kick off the album.
Sock It To Me feat. Da Brat – This is one of my favorite Timbaland beats of all time!
