A Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum artist/producer, Missy Elliott initially established herself as a genuine hit maker for other artists, including Aaliyah and 702, alongside her longtime collaborator, Timbaland. She then moved on to score a dazzling run for herself. Her chart-topping debut album "Supa Dupa Fly" (1997) and subsequent four albums have made Elliott the best-selling female hip-hop star of all time and one of the most influential writer/producer/artists in the music business.
To date, Elliott has received 17 MTV Award nominations and has won the prestigious MTV Video Of The Year, two Grammy awards, an American Music Award, three BET Awards and five Lady Of Soul/Soul Train Awards. Twice within the past five years, Rolling Stone has named her Best Female Hip-Hop Artist of the Year, and twice she has ranked as Billboard's number one year-end female hip-hop star. Her very first music video for "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" was crowned the 15th greatest video of all time by MTV.
Her more recent star-studded production credits include projects with Christina Aguilera, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Destiny's Child, among others. Elliott has also seen success as CEO of Goldmind Inc., which launched platinum R&B star Tweet.
