Biography

Portsmouth, Virginia Beach VA, United States (1993 – present)

Melissa Arnette Elliott (born July 1, 1971 in Portsmouth, Virginia), better known by her stage name Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott, is an American Grammy Award winning rapper, singer, producer, actress and former member of the R&B group Sista. With sales of over seven million in the United States alone she is the only female rapper to have six albums certified platinum by the RIAA and has worked extensively as a producer for many other artists along with her childhood friend Timbaland. She released her debut album, Supa Dupa Fly in 1997 and has since released 1999’s Da Real World, 2001’s Miss E… So Addictive, 2002’s Under Construction, 2003’s This is Not a Test! and 2005’s The Cookbook. She has been working on her seventh studio album, Block Party, since 2007 and it will hopefully be released late 2010 or early 2011.

Elliott is one of the first female hip hop superstars, known for a long series of hits including “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)”, “Hit ‘Em Wit Da Hee”, “Get Ur Freak On”, “One Minute Man”, “Work It”, and “Lose Control”. In addition she has received recognition as one of the most successful songwriters of the modern music era, having crafted a number of hit records for artists such as Aaliyah, 702, Total, Ciara, Nicole Wray and Tweet, often with production-partner and childhood friend Timbaland. She was the third female rapper to ever go Platinum, behind Lil’ Kim and Da Brat.

    Realmente, ela teria uma grande legião de fãs, se estive com a carreira ativa, mas como não está, ninguém é obrigado.
