If you’re reading this, it means hip hop plays a big part in your life. You’ve got memories from years ago that helped to cement your fandom of the genre. For me, one of those nostalgic checkpoints is making sure I’d get home from school in time to catch Missy Elliott’s music videos playing on MTV TRL and BET’s 106 & Park. Her songs were catchy as hell, but they were made even more noteworthy once the always imaginative accompanying music video dropped for the public to savor. The video and the song were true companions, preventing fans from being able to think of the song without picturing the bombastic, limit-pushing visuals Missy provided viewers.
With that said, you can imagine how excited we were here at HotNewHipHop.com when Missy Elliott’s star began flickering back to life - illuminating first at this past year’s Super Bowl and culminating to full shine with the release of her new single “WTF (Where They From).” Not only does the track bang as well as anything else you’d hear on the radio (not bad for the first single in seven-plus years), but the video holds up to other Misdemeanor classics.
There’s only one way to see how it truly holds up against the others, though. That’’s by counting down the best Missy Elliott videos of all time.
So, sit back and relax. Put your thing down and flip it. Heck, even reverse it if you want. So long as you click along and join us as we rank Missy Elliott’s Greatest Music Videos.
