Product Description

Parental Advisory - Explicit Content Certified platinum by the RIAA (9/97).

Gettin' by with a little help from her friends, you have to know that Missy Elliot means business when her CD starts out with an intro by rap's reigning jester, Busta Rhymes ("Busta's Intro"). From there on, Elliot's soulful vocals and clever raps would serve to be strong enough on its own, but the whole disc becomes a superpowered collective when a host of celebrities contribute on nearly every song. There's the built-for-cruising grooves of "Sock It 2 Me" featuring Da Brat on trademark lightening-fast rhymes, the sultry Ginuwine-marked "Friendly Skies" and "Best Friends" with Aaliyah. Supa Dupa Fly is a disc filled with woman-empowering lyrics and philosophies, but those looking for a role models for young children should be forewarned; some rough language is mixed in with the disc's good intentions. --Denise Sheppard

This album would've been excellent if it was shorter. Some of the tracks are pure filler. The standout tracks are: Sock It 2 Me, The Rain, Pass da Blunt, Hit'em Wit Da Hee, Friendly Skies and Best Friends. After all these years, "The Rain" and "Sock it to Me" still sound new and exciting. Also, "Best Friends" is one of the most beautiful songs Missy Elliott has ever written.

As a member of the R&B group Sista, Missy Elliott went almost unnoticed. It wasn't until years later, when she placed her trademark "hee-hee-hee-hee-ha" lyrics on a Gina Thompson remix that she achieved recognition. Missy's songwriting credits include a number of R&B hits (SWV's "Can We" and Aaliyah's "4 Page Letter"), and her familiar vocal style has been featured on some of the year's hottest remixes, including Li'l Kim's "Not Tonight".
Produced by Timbaland (Ginuwine, Aaliyah), SUPA DUPA FLY showcases the studio whiz's unique recording techniques. The tempos here are much slower than on the average hip-hop release, with rhythms akin to dancehall music. Missy doesn't limit herself to rap, either. Many of the songs on SUPA DUPA FLY fall easily into the R&B bag, especially when Missy swaps her hard-core hip-hop lyrics for a smooth laid-back approach.

People, remember that the negative reviews of this album are only opinions, not facts, so please don't be discourage to spend your hard earn money on this album because it's Missy's 2nd best album ever (her best album was with Sista: 4 All Da Sistas Around Da World), regardless of what everyone else says. There isn't one song on this album that I skip or do not like. I love every song on this album, from beginning to end. I didn't really care for her "Da Real World" album, but this one is excellent. My favorite songs are: Busta's Intro, Hit 'Em Wit Da Hee, Sock It 2 Me, The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly), Beep Me 911, Pass Da Blunt, Friendly Skies, Best Friends, Why You Hurt Me, I'm Talkin', and Getaway, but the two tightest songs on this CD are: Beep Me 911 with 702 and Friendly Skies performed by Ginuwine. Unlike "Da Real World," this album is a consistent release and Missy doesn't have everybody and their mama on this album. Buy it 'cause you won't be disappointed.

Missy Elliot's Supa Dupa Fly is a revolutionary classic and makes an extremely strong case for best album of 1997. In 1997 Timbaland's beats were new and fresh to the industry. While he and Missy did earlier work on other's albums (Ginuwine- Pony, Aaliyah One In A Million, SWV Release Some Tension, Total's album and others) this was their first real full-length collaborative effort. Each has gone to record numerous solo efforts and have laced and are lacing countless hits for other artists today.
Missy's playful and simplistic rhyme style may turn off closed-minded underground fans. She does spit out an occasional jibberish line making you say huh. These momentary blurts give this album a raw freestyle feel. There is a thin line between being brilliant and being stupid or plum-dumb. Missy thankfully is on the brilliant side. Timbaland provides the nice, crisp, head nodding beats. Missy brings in her industry friends and they are all over this album. Guest artists such as Da Brat, Lil Kim, Busta Rhymes, 702, Magoo, Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Nicole and Space add to the pleasure.
On the real, I Love every song on here but I will give you my favorites on here. Sock It 2 Me featuring Da Brat is insanely tight with one of Timbalands best beats and Da Brat rips this up. The Rain, the super-mega hit that thrusted Missy into the public spotlight, is simply a masterpiece. This song wont ever get tiring. Missy's slow flow and Timbaland's uncanny skills behind the board is just simply amazing. Beep Me 911 is the most moving beat on the album and I love it. Friendly Skies is the prelude to Missy and Ginuwine's current hit Take Away. And to me, the best song on the album has got to be Best Friends featuring Aaliyah.

Whoever enjoys the sounds of Hip-Hop and R&B won't have a complete collection without Missy Elliot's Supa Dupa Fly! This phenomenal album was revolutionary in the music industry. How many people in the music business can sing, rap, produce, and write songs??? Missy Elliott is making a successful career out of all those things! It has to be one my all time favorite albums! Missy is one the most talented women in the industry during the 90's and even now. Her success will keep growing as her endless creativity keeps flowing!
