Missy Elliott drops new music

Missy Elliott is having an impressive year, copping the VMA Vanguard Award and dropping her EP Iconology.

Iconic singer-rapper-producer-songwriter Missy Eliott has been on a continuous roll of excellence. She recently received her long-overdue recognition through MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and induction in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

She’s maintained that successful tempo with the release of her new project Iconology this month.
