Happy Birthday Missy Elliott, Turns 48 Today

A five-time Grammy Award-winning rapper, singer, songwriter, dancer and producer, Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott has consistently pushed the boundaries of hip hop with a string of classic hit singles — such as “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It,” “Lose Control” and “Gossip Folks.” She is also a formidable businesswoman who retains full creative control over her music, videos and productions. A longtime collaborator with her childhood friend from Virginia, the producer Tim “Timbaland” Mosley, she has also worked with Jay Z, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Madonna, Janet Jackson and many more. Elliott is a positive role model who projects strength, confidence and female empowerment — but has never sacrificed her sense of fun or her capacity to entertain. And after more than two decades in hip hop, she is still at the top of the game.
