Missy Elliott's Life in Photos

Longtime friends and collaborators Lil' Kim and Missy Elliott embrace at the NBA All-Star Jam in 1998. Missy is excited for the two and other female rappers to still be making music ten years later. "I feel like a lot of female rappers are out there doing their own thing," she said. "For example, Lil’ Kim has a mixtape coming out and she’s working on her album. And Eve is working on her thing too. Hopefully we can jump together at the same time."
