Missy Elliott Talks New Album, Remembers Chris Lighty on ‘106 & Park’

Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott received a warm welcome when she returned to “106 & Park” minus her partner-in-rhyme Timbaland, who was stuck in traffic. Decked out in a spike-covered jacket, Misdemeanor chatted about her new singles “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat” and upcoming album.

“Missy then was 10 years ahead and Missy now is 10 years ahead, so nothing’s really changed as far as Missy is concerned,” she told Rocsi. “I’m futuristic. I’ma bring 2050 in the year 2012.”

For the new project, the dynamic duo returned to Virginia, where they recorded Missy’s 1997 debut Supa Dupa Fly. “People be like, ‘Welcome back. We glad you back,’” said Missy. “This will say we never left. This album is crazy! There’s nothing like it.”

She also shared memories of her late friend and manager Chris Lighty. “Words can’t describe this man. He was a go-getter,” she said of the Violator founder. “He wanted to see all of us make it and be successful. He built so many careers, not just Missy Elliott. There was Busta, there was LL, there was 50—so many, Mariah.”

    @ugh, And how would you know they’re not serious about their work? Kim and Missy both took a little break around the sametime.

    Kim already was on 106 this year, she performed on “Rip The Runway”, went on her own tour(which Missy was apart of, as well as Eve), and she performed at fashion week.

    Eve is also starring in a new movie.
    Just because Missy released her stuff 1st doesn’t mean the others aren’t serious.

    All 3 are taking over, JUST WAIT AND SEE.

    So happy Missys back. Nicki Minaj is the reason i no longer listen to the radio they play this bitch song every 30 minutes wack ass Starships fuk outta here. Missy can sell records without selling out. Always sticks to the same formula and being innovative in music while the acts of today follow trends.

    @Cassive, She has Graves Disease. It caused her eyes to bulge out her sockets thats why she looks like that now but she said she beat it and doesnt have to taken medication anymore.

    Missy is hands down the Queen of Hip Hop and by far the best female rapper to ever do it. Going off changing the sound of music, being innovative, making the best music videos, live performances nobody is touching her point blank period. When u get into the music business that is what you aim for changing music and having your own style that can forever be remembered and for the best reasons possible not for being a gimmick. Get Your Freak on is Missys “Thriller”. I wish she had gotten the chance to work with MJ before he passed it would have been EPIC!!!
