Biography

No female rap artist paralleled the success of Missy Elliott, neither during her reign nor before, and none was more deserving. Unlike most of urban music's female superstars, Missy writes her own songs as well as performs them, and her creative wit in on a par with her stylish demeanor. In addition to her talent and showmanship, she established herself as a genuine hitmaker alongside her ... Read more in Amazon's Missy Elliott Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Missy "Misdeameanor" Elliott's first two groundbreaking albums, the double platinum debut Supa Dupa Fly and platinum follow-up Da Real World made her one of the most influential icons of Pop and Hip Hop culture. Her new album, Miss E...So Addictive, is one of the most anticipated albums of 2001, and will undeniably make her an even bigger multimedia superstar than this producer, writer and businesswoman already is. The album features appearances by, among others, Jay-Z, Method Man, Eve, Busta Rhymes, and Ludacris, and was produced by Missy and Timbaland. Certified Platinum by the RIAA. (7/01)

Amazon.com

After a long winter of discontent, So Addictive finds Missy Elliott hoping to initiate hip-hop's summer of love. Miss E's third album is dosed with feel-good flavor and has more guests than the VIP section of the hippest hip-hop hot spot. Buddies Method Man and Redman bark across the bridge of "Dog in Heat"'s canine funk. Jay-Z and Ludacris feature on two different versions of "One Minute Man"'s scathing soul. Synths tweak and creak in rhythm as Missy unleashes a dreamy diss of those hopeless suitors who unload their cargo before they've sparked her ignition. "Take Away" features Pony man Ginuwine on a hypnotic slow-burner heavily reminiscent of Art of Noise's "Moments in Love." When left to her own devices, as she is on "Lick Shots" (which jangles like Django Reinhardt on downers), Missy comes on like Schooly D, a fearless, female gangsta licking shots against anyone who dares cross her. On "Scream a.k.a. Itchin'" she breaks into a soprano. A 4/4 stomp is stamped indelibly across the ecstasy-holler song "4 My People" (featuring Eve). Overall, it feels as if producer Timbaland has muted his experimental leanings on this outing with his favorite muse in favor of submersible club tracks. Musically, the bhangra beat bop of "Get Ur Freak On" is the standout. The spiral timing of "Whatcha Gon' Do," the fret-skipping "Slap! Slap Slap!" (featuring Da Brat), and the sunken, drunken funk of the not-so-subtle X-hex "X-Tasy" are tied at a close second. --Chris Campion

5.0 out of 5 stars Missy Rips The Hip-Hop Rule Book Apart! October 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When Missy Elliott's sophomore album came in the form of "Da Real World," many fans were disappointed. She returned in 2001 with her third album, the majestic "Miss E...So Addictive." She silenced the critics and became one of the biggest female Hip-Hop stars of all time in the process. From the minute you play this CD you see a much tougher and independent Missy, who is taking no s**t from no one, and living her life the best way she knows how - through music. We're taken on a journey of discovery and revelation, along with aspects of love, sex, partying, drugs and much more.

The album opens with "So Addictive (Intro)" which features Tweet. Missy introduces her new superstar on the first track wonderfully with a 50 second cut about not needed drugs to get high. We then move onto the absolutely funky "Dog In Heat." I knew from the minute I heard this song that I loved it because it's such a hip-swayer! You just can't help but sway your head from side to side as you groove to Method Man's explicit rap, before you grind to Missy's catchy verses. The chorus is explosive, and this so should have been a single! "One Minute Man" follows, which was the big hit of summer 2001. Ludacris is awesome on this, and it's one of Missy's all-time classic joints. "Lick Shots" is definitely an album highlight with some crazy lyrics and some hilarious beats. The album's lead single, "Get Ur Freak On," follows. With one of the most addictive beats in history, this is truly a classic and possibly the greatest Hip-Hop song ever.

"Scream A.K.A Itchin'" sees Missy rapping like no tomorrow, before breaking out into opera after a few seconds! It sounds crazy, and it is - but in that absolutely amazing way. You can feel your bones jumping to this song, it's just incredible.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Addictive" Album From Missy July 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album I've bought from Missy Elliott, and after listening to it, I HAVE to get the other 2!! These songs have funk all over them, even the ballad-like songs. My supreme favorite of this album is the reason I bought it:"Get Ur Freak On". I cannot get enough of this song! Other favorites include "Lick Shots", "Step Off" and "Whatcha Gon' Do". The songs I did not care for were "Take Away"(I love Missy and Ginuwine, but the song was too sappy),"X-tasy", and a bonus track "Movin' On". This song belongs in a hip-hop church, not a rap album. This album is a real winner; I can't wait to get the other 2. As she says in her intro "My Album Is So Addictive". Buy it and you'll be hooked, too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Missy gets back to basics on "addictive" June 2, 2001
By John
Format:Audio CD
In 1997, hip hop would never be the same again. Here comes Missy Elliot in trashbag gear and freaky beats. Breathing new life into hip hop's stale industry, Missy's been doing this for years. Shes written and produced for such acts as Aaliyah and Mariah Carey long before her groundbreaking debut Supa Dupa Fly. Instead of your average scantily clad female rapper, missy is a full figured gal with a powerful prescense and a taste for the otherworldly. Fans who fell for her debut and may or may not have liked her sophomore effort Da Real World, will certainly enjoy So Addictive, as it brings back the experimental elements missy is known for. While, Da Real World was a dark, rather monotnous and boring album, addictive kicks supa dupa fly's attitude back in high gear. With more listenable, radio friendly songs, addictive explores funky hip hop sprinkled with off the wall electronic beats and out there effects. The highlights include the first single "Get Ur Freak On", "One Minute Man", "Lick Shots", "Old School Joint", and "4 my People". Five reasons to buy this one, folks. The others are good in theyre own way, but these five sound like potential singles to me. While its not a perfect album, it contains some of the most original songs youll hear in 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Addictive July 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After being knocked for Da Real World ( where Timbaland dropped some of his best beats) and it being so dark she returns with the fun almost freestyle like style of the Supa Dupa Fly album. At first when I heard this cd I thought it was mad wack and that Missy and Timbo had fallen off HARD. But for some reason I kept on listening to it and like the title states I became extremely addicted. I couldnt get enough of it. I even repeatedly listened to the intro( a rarity where the intro is good).
the obvious hits Get your Freak On, and One Minute Man and the remix are definitely classic Timbaland. The BEST song has to be Lick Shots with an unbelievable bassline and Missy's playful lyrics. Old School Joint is surprisingly very good with Missy singing and makes you want to hit the dance floor for real. The slow jam Take Away feat. Ginuwine doesnt take anything away from this album and adds a nice change of pace. The Bus A Bus interlude and Whatcha Gon Do sports amazing beats by timbaland. Step off, x-tasy is the bom bom zee. definite satisfaction. Slap, Slap, Slap feat. Da Brat adn Jade is one of the better songs with Da Brat again dropping an impressive verse. Da Brat has been on point lately. The Lil Mo interlude and the bonus gospel songs are some raw singing songs and come off well. The only lackluster song is Scream.
This is a 5 star album with one wack song. Plus the intro and the interludes are worth listening to, something that has NEVER BEFORE been done. I am impressed with this cd. It will be in rotation for A LONG TIME. At least until she drops another album. go Get it you will not regret it.
