Image of Missy Elliott


No female rap artist paralleled the success of Missy Elliott, neither during her reign nor before, and none was more deserving. Unlike most of urban music's female superstars, Missy writes her own songs as well as performs them, and her creative wit in on a par with her stylish demeanor. In addition to her talent and showmanship, she established herself as a genuine hitmaker alongside her ... Read more in Amazon's Missy Elliott Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Missy's recipes sizzle 5 July 2005
By Amanda Richards VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Now with six albums under her belt, Melissa "Missy" Elliott shows no signs of turning down the heat with this sizzling Cookbook. With old pal Timbaland in tow, Missy recruits a Who's Who of talent, including the ubiquitous Neptunes, Fantasia, Ciara, Mary J. Blige, Slick Rick, Mia and Lil Kim, among others.
Starting with a humorous skit introducing the guest artistes, the album opens, literally, with "Joy", featuring Mike Jones, and produced by Timbaland. The lead off single "Lose Control" featuring Ciara and Fat Man Scoop is a dance-friendly fun track, as infectious as Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl".
Another hot track is "On and On" produced by The Neptunes, my other picks being "We Run This" which samples that `80s staple "Apache", "Bad Man" a Jamaican dance hall anthem featuring Vybez Cartel and Mia, and "Teary Eyed" produced by Warryn Campbell.
Her slower tracks simmer, but still burn, especially the sensual but X-rated "Meltdown"
Brutally honest, funny and sometimes salty, Missy's cookbook is a sure-fire bestseller.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect recipe! 13 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Missy's new album is fresh from the oven and sizzling! At first when I heard Missy's new single lose control I didn't even like it that much. Now it's my favourite song ever! After lose control grew on my I saw her new album was out and listened to some samples of her other albums and loved them so I took a chance on this and now I love it. My favourite tracks are lose control, the best hip hop-dance anthem ever, the sexy irresistable delicious, the soulful teary eyed, the mega click clack and so many more others which i could be all day listing. The weakest is probably the ballady remember when. All in all, a superb album. Buy it now!!!

Missy elliott's good work here! i loved her flow and also the production on this album which missy always comes hard on!

The song produced by Bangladesh is just FIRE! and teary eyed and bad man is obvious tunes that make you nod your head whenever you hear it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album yet from Miss E..... 7 Aug 2005
By lajonic
Format:Audio CD
What can I say, album number six but by far her best since Supa Dupa Fly. This albums rocks it from beginning to end. I can't find a bad track on this album, the production is tight and mostly by Missy herself. She seems to churn the albums out almost every year, but this is far from an album that has been rushed out by any means. The album gives a demonstration of all kinds of black music with a mix of r'n'b, hip-hop and reggae flavours, all of which are perfectly in balance with no track sounding the same. Standouts are 'My man' with Fantasia which has a bassline to blow your speakers and the crazy in love style song 'Gotta Move' which I just can't stop listening to. The collaborations are not overdone and the artists Missy has worked with all suit each track, especially 'irresisiatble' with Slick Rick which just takes you back and the snippet of 'What's the 411' with Mary on 'My struggles' is great. I have every Missy album and if you need to buy one then go for this. The good thing about this is you get to hear a mixture of Missy rapping and singing which she didn't do much of on her last album and with a voice like that I'm glad she has this time! Any fan of black music will not be dissapointed!!
