  • Quotes

    • Missy: I'd stand on the side of the road when I was just a little girl singing on trash cans. People would roll down their windows saying, "Isn't she cute?". I had a vivid imagination. I always pretended it was some big stage. At family picnics they'd put me on the table and I'd just start singing.

    • Missy: 'My Struggles' is a record close to me. On this record I'm talking about what my home was like with my father being abusive to my mother. I wasn't born into being a superstar, I went through a lot and when I heard the track it brought me back to Grand Puba and Mary J. Blige on What's the 411?

    • Missy: (about working with Fantasia) I so enjoyed working with her. She's one of the most incredible voices I've heard in a long time. As soon as I did the record I knew it was for her.

    • Missy: (about the song On & On) Back then, the rapping style wasn't as deep. It was very simple,... ...People could catch on with all the spaces and breaks between the raps and that's basically what I did on this song.

    • Missy Elliott: The double chin's not good for the red carpet.

    Missy Elliott only came into my live from 2003 when Pass That Dutch was released and from then i took real notice lol. I think shes one of the most talented rappers of all time no matter what anyone says and her music video are awesome aswell. Shes released 6 studio albums and all of them have been very good with the odd song that hasnt taken my intrest. Her acting is just as good as her rapping / singing she knows how to act and she knows how to show that she can act. Her greatest hits album 'Respect M.E.' was a brilliant album and probaly her best featuring all her hits such as Lose Control, Get Ur Freak On, Pass That Dutch and many more all names that can be remembered.

    She has been a real inspriation and im glad i found out about Missy Elliott.moreless
  • She is really sweet. You don't find that in a rapper too often.

    Missy Elliot is really nice and you don't find kindness in a rapper too too many times. Well, at least no 50 Cent. Best female rapper ever. She is so much better now than she used to be. Like, Under Construction was not really Missy. Her new songs rock! Her music videos are cool too! The special effects on some of them rock! Missy Elliot is also really funny and I think she is the best female rapper ever! Missy Elliot is a really funny, sweetm smart, pretty, talented, and really cool rapper who is a female. One really talented woman!moreless
