Missy Elliott aka the first queen of hip hop (sorry Nicki – let’s not even pretend Iggy was in contention) just released her first song since 2008 – thanks Obama. Seriously, if you don’t like Missy Elliott, then you’re on the wrong side of history.
It’s called WTF (Where They From), and it’s the song equivalent of perfectly even eyeliner. Ten year old me didn’t think it was possible to top “Pass That Dutch,” but I was incorrect. The song itself is fucking phenomenal – it deserves its own Spotify playlist where it just repeats until you blackout.
Pharrell raps in it, and it’s so good I almost forgot that he created “Happy” aka the worst thing to happen to the human race since ASPCA commercials. But the absolute best part of this song is one lyric: “Sticking out your tongue, girl but you know you’re too young” aka sit the fuck down Miley Cyrus.
