Monica On Missy Elliott’S Return: “Missy Is At Her Absolute Best...”
It has been seven long years since Missy Elliott released her last album, 'The Cookbook'. However, the wait will soon be over and fans will finally get the chance to hear what Missy has been cooking in the studio with Timbaland later on this year. Monica recently spoke with Rap-Up TV about what people can expect when one of the biggest selling female rap stars of our generation returns to the music game...
She said: "Missy is missing from music and hip-hop because there’s no one as creative, as dedicated. She thinks outside the box, but at the same time draws you in the box that she’s in. She’s able to make visuals of things that I’ve never even dreamed of. I think hip-hop really needs her right now.
"I’ve heard some new music and all I can tell you is that Missy is at her absolute best when she’s at peace with herself and there’s no pressure. She’s been able to work on her record with a host of real talented people and reinvent herself all over again."
Monica added: "She told me that she wanted me to do something on the new record and we never did it. What I do is I just go to the house and we just make music. No time restraints, nobody watching us, nobody coming in between us, we just do it, so I think it will happen."
We love a bit of Missy, we do.
