New Music: Missy Elliott f/ Timbaland – ‘9th Inning’ + ‘Triple Threat’

The wait is over. After a 7-year hiatus, Missy Elliott makes a triumphant return to music. The hip-hop icon debuts the full versions of “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat,” the first singles off her seventh album, tentatively titled Block Party. Both tracks were produced by and feature her partner-in-rhyme Timbaland, and will hit iTunes tonight.

“We’re basically coming to switch music again,” said Missy during her Ustream session. “People wonder what took us so long and I feel like we needed to refresh our brains and either come correct or don’t come at all.”

Was it worth the wait? Listen and sound off below.
