iTunes Review

On her sixth album, Missy Elliott continues to push forward as if still out to prove something. The Cookbook finds her acknowledging hip-hop’s past (guests include Grand Puba and Slick Rick) and present (Ciara and M.I.A.) while nearly running to get around the next corner.

Not only does Missy more than represent for great hip-hop, she’s doing a hell of a lot for the whole of pop music.

After she broke through with partner Timbaland as the co-writer of Aaliyah's number one R&B/hip-hop hits "One in a Million" and "If Your Girl Only Knew," Elliott went on an extraordinary run for herself, beginning...
