Missy’s Hot Boyz

Filed under: Flashback — Felicia @ 12:04 pm

Song: “Hot Boyz”

Album: Da Real World (1999)

Label: Goldmind

Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott emerged on the scene wearing a garbage bag in “Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” and causing heads to do a double take. The boisterous producer, songwriter, singer, rapper has made quite a name for herself on other artist’s albums alongside her production cohort, Timbaland.  She initially came from behind the scenes and to the forefront with her debut album, Supa Dupa Fly followed by her follow-up two years later, Da Real World.

Although Missy never really had that classic R&B diva look, her music still broke barriers across the board. Her sophomore album produced the hit record “Hot Boyz” which still gets radio play 10 years after its release. The record features Nas, Q-Tip, Eve and vocals by Lil Mo. Definitely one of my top Missy records to date. Although she’s a bit peculiarly, she definitely has a style all her own that others won’t dare duplicate; it works for her.
