281 – Missy Elliott – Get Ur Freak On (2001)
Written by Melissa Elliott and Tim Mosley
Produced by Timbaland
Label – Goldmind/Elektra
Let’s face it, Missy is sadly one of the few credible female hip hop performers, and her works from the late 90s to the mid-noughties rival any of her machismo male counterparts. “Get Ur Freak On” is as inventive as it is sassy. Cutting edge Bhangra rhythms and odd computer bleeps and blips liven Elliott’s street smart swagger and fluid vocal flow.
