Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott has been pretty quiet on the
hip-hop scene since releasing her sixth
studio album The Cookbook back in 2005.
The Virginia-born rapper has released one-
off singles over the years, but ICONOLOGY
is her first collection of new material for 14
years. The positive critical reception to this
new release shows what we’ve long been
missing out on.


  1. Elliott first embarked on her music career
    as a member of the all-female R&B outfit
    Sista in the 1990s.

  2. Elliott’s absence from the spotlight in
    recent years has been largely due to her
    being diagnosed with Grave’s disease, which
    had evidenced itself in leg spasms.

  3. However, with her condition responding
    well to treatment, Elliott later revealed
    that she would be eager to return to her
    music career.

  4. Through social media, Elliott announced
    ICONOLOGY only several hours before it
    was released.

  5. Iconology comes about half a year after
    the single “Tempo”, a collaboration between
    Elliott and Lizzo.
