Missy Elliott Debates New Album Title

Missy Elliott

On the 15th anniversary of her debut Supa Dupa Fly, Missy Elliott sat down with Fuse to reminisce about her groundbreaking album and the iconic video for “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).”

“Everything about it. You hadn’t heard it before,” said Missy of the 1997 project, which took two weeks to record. “Even the rap flows was different. I think it was 10 years ahead, 15 years ahead [of its time].”

Looking back, she’s proud of her work. “I’m probably more in awe with it now than I was then.”

She dropped her two new singles “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat” last month, but she has yet to decide on a title for her seventh album. While she was choosing between Block Party and Class Dismissed, one fan suggested a third title, Class in Session.

“Somebody said Class Dismissed sounds like class is over. Class in Session sounds like you’re taking people to school. I gotta figure it out,” she said.

During a Ustream session, she revealed that she has a “fun, party record” featuring Lil’ Kim and Eve. When asked if the album will contain a 2012 version of “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix),” she responded, “Great possibility.”

    I love Missy and all the other “old school” female rappers, but in my opinion, I really don’t think there should EVER be a “Ladies Night. PT 2″ because that song is such a 90′s “classic”.

    I would love to see another song with the older female rappers (Missy, Kim, Eve, Latifah, Hill, Salt N Pepa, Brat, etc).. But most of the female “rappers” in this generation don’t even get along.

    @key, I see somebody can’t read… I said nothing about “old school” female rappers not getting along. I said THIS generation (Iggy, Azealia, Nicki, Lola, etc)…

    Read before you speak.

    @Opd2, The only “female” beef back then was Kim and Foxy Brown, and not to mention Queen Latifah and Foxy Brown.

    The female rappers back then didn’t beef as much as the female rappers now. No matter if you like it or not. IT’S THE TRUTH.

    Almost 98% of the female rappers today don’t fu*k with each other.

    @JussSaying, honestly that would be great, if they do include Nicki. It would end their beef and together they can UNITE and overthrown the male rappers.

    @OMG, I really feel Nicki would be the party that denied a collaboration w/the other ladies. Nothing against Nicki but I can’t see Nicki giving a female room to possibly outshine her. Nicki does think she’s bigger than life right about now. Popularity wise she is but not musically. And Nicki knows this. Her music hasn’t been getting the greatest reviews lately. Plus I believe mature ppl are anticipating change in female rap. A new sound. Hopefully one of these ladies can bring it.

    @Roman Reloaded, Those songs suck though what are u talking about? The Boys is horrible so whoever gave it positive reviews is an idiot.

    @Keeping It Real,

    I totally agree.. NOT hating on nicki.. I like her alot! But They Boys is pop aimed at the little white gay boys and girls…
    I just cant relate to it. At the end of the day the proof is in the pudding.. only Right By My Side and Beez In The Trap.. made some sort of noise.. the other songs kinda faded into the noise.

    She just needs to focus on the album and the material and then the title will come to her after. I just hope she releases it soon!
