Classic Moment: Missy Elliott – “Beep Me 911” by Windowpane

I miss everything there is to miss about this. Missy’s futuristic chemistry with Timbaland, their fresh approach to songs, her imaginative harmonies and lyrics, the visionary music video – everything. Supa Dupa Fly & Da Real World remain two of Elliott’s best and most creative offerings. Miss E…So Addictive did it’s damn thing too, but the first two kill it, in every sense.

The crew and I have been reminiscing on this (seemingly forgotten) ‘era’ in R&B/Hip Hop recently – truth be told, this is the type of ish I grew up on. Many cite Biggie and 2Pac etc, and to an extent, that was me too, but it was the early Alien-esque beats of Timbaland, She’kspere and the Neptunes (to name a few) that really got me interested and invested in music.

Come back ‘aaard Missy.

Peace, Love & Classic Moments
