What an insane collaboration, but what else can you expect from a super producer on the type of level Timbaland is. The multi-talented hit maker draws in T-Pain, Lil Wayne and long time collaborative friend and legend Missy Elliot for this never before released track “The Party Anthem”. Without spoiling this for you, we will just let you know that this track is INSANE; as is any feature by Missy Elliot. Check it out after the jump! (more…)Read More
The Hip-Hop community suffered a tragic lost back in August when Chris Lighty passed away. Tonight, during the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, artists such as 50 Cent, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliot helped rejoice the life of Chris by performing some of their classics while the crowd rapped every word. This is by far the highlight and best part of the show. Incase you missed it, you can view after the jump.Read More
After a bit of a hiatus from the music scene, it appears Missy Elliot is back in full force. At Hennessy’s White Rabbit campaign launch at NYC’s Highline Stages yesterday, the former dynamic duo of Missy and Timbaland took to the stage to preview a few new tracks from Missy, one of which samples Run DMC’s “Here We Go (Live at the Funhouse).” According to Hip-Hop Wired, Missy looked healthy and her music “hasn’t missed a beat” as she gets ready to release a new album this June. It’s good to have Missy back.Read More
Ten years ago today, one of R&B’s most beautiful and talented women passed away in a plane crash. That beautiful and talented woman was Aaliyah Dana Haughton. One of the people who was a good close friend of Aaliyah was Missy Elliot. Below she reflects on Aaliyah’s death and their friendship. After the jump, you can catch Keshia Chante doing a cover to Aaliyah’s classic “One In A Million” record.
Today is the 10 year anniversary of Aaliyah’s passing and I’m sitting here reminiscing and playing music, thinking of the times we spent together, working, laughing, singing, dancing, cutting up. But really, it’s not all that different from any other day because I do think about her every day.
Not on purpose, but she is my friend and that’s just how I do. I’ve told the same stories for 9 years – how we met, how me and Tim were scared but Aaliyah was so welcoming and had this smile and way about her that put us at ease, that she liked to take chances and we were able to just be who we were and make good records together.
She loved playing jokes and that’s another part of her personality that made it fun to be around her. As a talent, I think she’s missed because she was unique and a true triple threat. She could sing, dance, and her acting was starting to take off.
I’m glad for the memories I have and the time we got to spend together, but I miss my friend.
Rest In Peace and Power Baby Girl.
