Missy Elliott is receiving the love and praise that she deserves.
On Monday (May 3), the hip hop superstar’s name trended on Twitter after she gave fans a walk down memory lane by sharing some of her most creative and innovative music videos. “When I think of how many people thought I was crazy back then, I look at my videos & songs now & see how they CHANGED THE GAME & allowed ppl to be different now,” she tweeted, alongside a clip from her “She’s A Bitch” music video. “If I had of listened to the naysayers, boy oh boy no1 would of ever seen these MASTERPIECES.”
Missy then shared clips from several of her music videos, including “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Sock It 2 Me,” “Work It,” “One Minute Man,” “Throw It Back,” “Beep Me 911” and “Get Ur Freak On.”
Fans flocked to her mentions to give her recognition for becoming a trailblazing icon. Twitter user @PreciousGNSD wrote, “I love that Missy Elliott KNOWS she set [the] pace and doesn’t shy away from reminding everyone that she is really the blueprint. She doesn’t even do it in a prideful way either, but even if she did? And so? Her work has earned her the right to do so if she wanted to.”
“I love most female rappers, but when I tell you that Missy Elliott has my heart, I mean that shit,” tweeted @__theaquacave. “She can rap, sing and produce. Not to mention, her music videos were different and out of the box. They are timeless and so is she.”
Social media user @leizenomis tweeted, “I’ve always wanted to learn about the creative process and inspiration behind Missy’s music videos because from such a young age, I’ve always admired her creativity. She embodies cultural reset; innovator; pioneer. I’d like a documentary or book please.”
