Missy Elliott Explains Her Silence
The rapper is still around...
Hip-hop icon Missy Elliotthas explained the reason why she hasn’t been in the spotlight for a while.
She told MTV News US: "People are always like, 'Where you been?' but you gotta remember, I got Jazmine Sullivan out there, I had Monica 'Everything To Me', 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 gonna be around for a long time. She's gonna make people have to step-up their singing, Jazmine sings from the soul.
"She sings 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’s got a husky voice and we haven't heard that really in R&B in a long time. She has a unique voice."
