Rapper/producer Missy Elliott‘s run in the rap game may be reaching its end with reports of her forthcoming album may possibly be her last.
According to Da Brat, Missy may be done with releasing full-length albums.
“I was hoping for a ‘Ladies Night’ reunion. I spoke to Missy and she down for it. She want to do a song because she said this could possibly be her last album,” Da Brat said. “I’m definitely coming back out ASAP.” (Sister 2 Sister Magazine)
Earlier this year, Missy and hitmaker Timbaland put out a record called “Take Ur Clothes Off”.
Timbaland debuts his new weekly series Timbaland Thursdays with none other than his frequent collaborator Missy Elliott. The best buddies are up to their zany tricks on the club-friendly “Take Ur Clothes Off,” powered by Timbo’s leftfield synthesizers and snapping instrumentation. Missy holds it down on the lyrical tip, dropping smirk-worthy rhymes to lighten up the track. “Been hot before Michael Jackson wore loafers/ Been rich before you even knew about Oprah,” she quips. Reunited and it feels so good. (Rap-Up)
Last fall, Missy explained her preference to work behind the scenes with artists like R&B singer Jazmine Sullivan.
“People always be like, ‘Where [you] been?’ but you gotta remember, I got Jazmine Sullivan out there, I had Monica ‘Everything [To Me’],” Missy explained in an interview. “I’m always having artists that I’m doing records on so I’m just behind the scenes right now. I did the artist thing, now I’m just writing and producing…It’s been a long time coming but she gon’ be around for a long time. She’s gon’ make people have to step up they singing…Jazmine sing from the soul. She sing from a different place. She’s not just a singer, she sings from a place where you feel like she been through those things before. And she got a husky voice and we haven’t heard that really in R&B in a long time so she [has] a unique voice.” (MTV)
She is reportedly working on a new record called “Blow Ya Whistle.”
Lately, Missy E has been busy producing records for other artists, the latest one being Jazmine Sullivan’s ‘Holding U Down’ but here’s some good news for the fans. She will be finally returning to the scene with her brand new single called ‘Blow Ya Whistle’. Apparently, her album is still titled Block Party. (Hip Hop N More)
