5 Reasons We Can’t Wait for Missy Elliott’s Two New Singles


Reason #2: Missy doesn’t always get the respect she deserves from today’s rap fans.
When you disappear from the rap scene for a year—let alone seven years!—people tend to forget about you. It’s the way the game works. So, these days, rap fans, especially young rap fans, don’t really give Missy the credit she deserves. And, that’s unfortunate when you consider how many records she’s sold, how many hits she’s written, and how popular she was once upon a time. With that in mind, we’re hoping her new material lives up to her old stuff and reminds people just how great she can be. Especially now that the rap game has so many active female MCs, Missy deserves some respect from rap fans and her peers.
