Supa Dupa Fly- Missy Elliot
After Tupac, Missy Elliot was the first hip hop artist I could really feel. No one and I mean no one had done what she was doing. From her outrageous punch lines to the random ad libs and subject matter, Missy was a game changer like a mug. She was one of the few females MCs who made it completely off of talent alone. She was not selling sex. She was selling good music. As a young girl, I could recognize and respect that. Not to mention, Timbaland’s genius beats would have you catching a serious case of whiplash. Once this album came out and Missy blew up, game would never be the same.
