Personalities | Missy Elliott | Nineties | Rock

(Singer-songwriter, b. 1971)

One of rap’s most iconic and important female stars, Melissa Elliott began writing for artists like Aaliyah before securing her own record deal. Supa Dupa Fly (1997) was a startling debut showcasing Elliott’s witty female empowering lyrics and masterful songwriting talent. Subsequent albums delivered hit after hit as well as featuring guest appearances from a male rap aristocracy eager to lyrically spar with ‘Misdemeanor’. Da Real World (1999) and Miss E … So Addictive (2001) are classics.
