The music industry had never seen anyone quite like Missy Elliott. She was hailed by The New Yorker as the “biggest and blackest female rap star that Middle America has ever seen,” who had “avoided the prevailing stereotypes of the music-video industry.” Meaning she did not pander to the male gaze as many female artists did or felt compelled to do during the height of the MTV era.
She projected confidence through her personal style instead, donning an inflatable body suit and outsizes shades in the video for “The Rain,” and a red-and-white space suit for “Sock It to Me.” Her message has always been that women “are equal to men, as important as men and as powerful” noted the fashion magazine Dazed retrospectively, in 2016. “If you love Nicki and Beyoncé, it’s important to remember the artist who paved the way.”
Missy’s next two albums — Da Real World in 1999 and Miss E … So Addictive in 2001 — also went platinum. In 2002 her fourth album, Under Construction, which featured collaborations with TLC, Beyoncé and Jay Z, broke sales records for a female-led rap album, exceeding 2.1 million copies in the United States.
The following year she remixed Madonna’s single “American Life,” and they performed together with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera at the MTV Video Music Awards; Elliott also found time to put out a fifth album, This Is Not a Test, which yielded the hit singles “Pass That Dutch” and “I’m Really Hot.”
In 2002, she received the Grammy Award for the category of ‘Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals’ for’ Lady Marmalade’. The same year, she received yet another Grammy Award in the category of ‘Best Rap Solo Performance for ‘Get Your Freak On’.
