The rapper's delayed album was initially scheduled to drop three years ago.
Block Party is the upcoming seventh studio album by American rapper Missy Elliott, scheduled to be released in 2010. The album's release was initially intended for December of 2007, additional songs were recorded for the project in spring of 2009 replacing the majority of the album's intended tracklisting.

Last month, Elliott made headlines for being booted off stage during London's annual Wireless Festival.
Missy Elliott was reportedly kicked off the stage at last weekend's Wireless Festival after she exceeded her performance time slot. The rapper was said to have arrived 20 minutes late for her set at the gig in London's Hyde Park but attempts to make up for her lateness with an extended performance were thwarted by the event's organisers.

Reports claimed the show's executives had her sound cut off during the performance.
Missy, who performed hits like Work It, Pass That Dutch and Get Ur Freak On, announced to festival-goers: "(I'm the) flyest s**t in the house". She also raised eyebrows when she mimed during bits of her set and brought on stage her new protege Sharaya, who didn't bother to sing live either. (Metro UK News)
No further details have been revealed as of now.
