Don’t call it a comeback! Though her recent Superbowl half-time performance (alongside Katy Perry) may have been the first time some of mainstream America was introuduced to the musical greatness that is ESSENCE Fest headliner Missy Elliott; we have been enthralled with the hip-hop and urban culture icon since the release of her debut album Supa Dupa Fly 18 years ago. She ruled the late ’90’s and most of the ’00’s with her trendsetting style of music and equally innovative music videos. Relive the #top10 Missy Elliott videos that solidified this year’s #EssenceFest headliner as a hip-hop icon.
