We couldn’t find ourselves going another day and not talking about Missy Elliot’s wake from hibernation just in case some of you all had no idea that the beast that is Missy is back to slaying tracks or as she raps over this dope beat, “You best to go re-write your bars.” It’s almost insulting to call it a comeback. In our Eartha Kit voice, come back from what? When you’re as genius as Missy Elliot, there is no need to comeback from anything. You go live your life and do anything you want to do while the world waits for you to grace them again with your presence. And now we have been graced. Everybody is eating cake today!
Her new single, “WTF (Where They From)” is classic Missy–which might we add is groundbreaking in its own right–and classic Missy has always been ahead of it’s time, so homegirl didn’t even have to really change her sound. She simply decided that the personal break was over. It was as if she started cutting this track years ago, paused and went back into the studio and was like, “Pick the beat back up.” That’s bad ass. That’s Misdemeanor for you. All the feels. We have all the feels.
