Biography

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

I bought this album after catching Missy Elliott’s latest single 'Gossip Folks' on the radio, and finding the tune buzzing around in my head for days afterwards.
Listening to the album for me was like taking a cold shower, it woke me up to a different kind of music than I would usually listen to, it really made me sit up and listen, and now I am completely hooked!!
16 tracks of amazing R&B and hip hop including a couple of remix tracks, one from Brighton Boy fat Boy Slim, which is simply amazing. My favourite track remains 'Gossip Folks' but also 'Work it' and 'Can You Hear Me?' featuring TLC are memorable tracks. 'Back in the day' is a very cool track and shows Missy's vocals off in a different light. There is nothing on this album that disappoints.
Not just the content of the actual CD make 'Under Construction' stand out, the memorial to artists that have passed away is genuine and very cool, and you can tell from the memorial to Aaliyah that Missy Elliott has a heart and respect for her fellow music makers.
This Album is the beginning of a learning circle for me, and an appreciation of a style of music that thanks to missy I am now starting to enjoy and understand.

After purchasing 'Da Real World' and 'Miss-E so Addictive', and hating them, I was extremely wary when it came to Under Construction, as it seemed like she only released the good singles. This album, Under Construction, has turned that on its head!
Missy is undisputedly the most commercially successfull female rapper in the music industry, getting way more recognition than the likes of Lil' Kim, Trina, Angie Martinez and Foxy Brown. That is because Missy has gone, to some extent, more mainstream with this album. The hard beats are still there, but a number of tracks slide towards r'n'b rather than rap.
Single 'Work It' is one of the best on the whole album. The kind of ethnic vibe to it, the catchy chorus and the great rhyming are what makes it great, and there's a remix with 50 Cent on the special edition. The other single - the Fatboy Slim Remix of Gossip Folks - is just mental. It is absolutely manic, and fantastic. However, the album original isn't too good.
Slide, Play That Beat and Ain't That Funny are the Missy of old, but she manages to incorporate some r'n'b funk into them. Slide is much like Work It, and Ain't That Funny is seriously stylish.
Two of the slower songs - Pussycat and Nothing Out There For Me (featuring Beyonce Knowles) - are done expertly. Pussycat is a smooth slice of r'n'b, in the vein of Mya or Brandy. Nothing Out There For Me is kind of an argument between Missy and Beyonce over Beyonce's relationship, with each girl giving their side of the argument, and it's great.
The other songs aren't that special, and Ms Jade - who features on Funky Fresh Dressed - is probably the worst guest artist that Missy has had on an album. She is simply vile on the song. Back In The Day, Bring The Pain, they're all pretty average.

This album is by far the best effort from Missy Elliot to date the album is full of great tracks from the lead of single Work It to her new single Gossip Folks with Ludacris.
The album has some guest apperances on there from Method Man, Ludacris, Jay-Z, Ms Jade, Beyonce, TLC and 50 Cent on the remix of Work It and with great production by Timbaland on the album makes it one of the best cds of 2002 and 2003.
The stand out tracks of this album include the catchy single gossip folks with ludacris, back in the day with Jay-Z, funky fresh dressed with ms jade, nothing out there for me with beyonce and the work it remix with 50 Cent. One of the best singles on the album and most personal on the album is can you hear me which is the tribute to aaliyah and lisa left eye lopez.
Buying this album will not be a waste of money it is a great cd as every song is a good track and its raw to buy music today that is as good as this album.
This album is a classic in its own right a must for all Missy fans throughout the world and this album places missy as one of the greatest female artists today.

Missy Elliott is one of the best hip-hop/rap artist of all time this album proves it, the way the album plays, is like a documentry of the events that have personally affected her.
The album shares many styles of hip-hop from its opening track "Go To Floor" which is a hot and addictive track that makes you wanna get up and dance to its lead single "Work It" which shows Missy Elliott expressing herself to the fullist it bass beats and lyrical rap is a feel good song as well as a serious one, to the second from the album "Gossip Folks" and it remix "Gossip Folks (Fatboy Slim Remix)" both show Missy expressing her views in signiture fashion of hip-hop attitude and great beats. This album is differnantly worth the money every track is different style and listening experince BUY IT!!!
