Do You Miss Missy Elliott ?

Alot of artist of artist can me gone from the music scene and have people waiting on edge for their music to return ( ie Sade, Maxwell etc ). But is anyone really waiting or checking for a new Missy CD ? She is very talented, but was her music just a fad , something that was just hot for a period of time not timeless ?

My Personal Feelings on Missy : I have always thought that Missy was a female version of R.Kelly from the aspect of an artist with undeniable talent but limits that talent to an extent just to be hot or have a radio hit. Its not like she hasn't proven with some of her past music and writing credits that she has the ability to put out a better product. IMO in the long run that hurts your music legacy and minimizes the personal connection with your fans that respect your for your musical ability.

    Nope, she was a byproduct of Timbaland imo. Who couldn't rhyme on those Timbaland beats, even Magoo sounded good on that 🤬 .

    Yea, I do. She was unique, especially in the face of female rappers, and singing wise actually had a really nice tone.Jay-Z and Missy are the 2 artist most overdue for a Greatest Hits album in the U.S. IMO. Jay's is coming, but Missy's needs to remind people just how much hot 🤬 she put out. It would look something like this....all songs that appeared on an actual album with her as the lead artist and none a "stretch" to be considered a "hit" really. I think its pretty impressive.

    1. The Rain
    2. Sock it To Me
    3. Beep Me 911
    4. Hit Em Wit the Hee
    5. Take Away
    6. She's a 🤬
    7. Hot Boyz
    8. All In My Grill
    9. Get ur Freak On
    10. One Minute Man
    11. 4 My People
    12. Work It
    13. Gossip Folks
    14. Pass That Dutch
    15. I'm Really Hot
    16. Lost Control
    17. We Run This
    18. Ching-a-ling

    Missy had some jams but I think I'm past that stage of my life that would appreciate her style.

    Edit: maybe if she did a real r & b album. She did have some nice ballads....

    Hell no.

    Anything she did post "Hot Boyz" is mostly trash.

    Yea, come to think of it, the game is missing the sound and energy she brought. Timbo + Missy was such a great tag team.

    In actuality no cause there's always people replacing other people in the industry. I would like to hear another Missy song though.

    As a rapper? Not much. As a producer? A bit. She did a lot for female R&B artists like, Aaliyah, Lil' Mo, Tweet, Mariah Carey, Mary J.Blige, and so on. Almost all the songs she did with them, I happen to like them all. Not a Missy fan, but those tunes got the kind of vibe I can dig, which makes me a semi-fan.

    She still does alot of producing though. She just produced Monica's last song "Everything To Me"

    She needs another album preferably entirely produced by Timbaland.

    After seeing her perform last night on the Hip Hop awards, I can say I do miss her. It's about time for her to drop something.

    yeah seeing her perform made me remember all those hits she had. Missy is always on some creative stuff specially when working with Timbo.

    I wouldn't say I miss her, but Missy did her thing when she was doing music.
