Song of the Week: Missy Elliott feat. Big Boi – “All N My Grill”

This all started because I was listening an Outkast playlist on TIDAL. The playlist was a collection of songs from the Atlanta duo during 1993 and 1999 including their guest appearances. One of my favorite appearances of Daddy Fat Stacks was egregiously missing, 1999’s “All N My Grill” by Missy Elliott from her sophomore album, Da Real World, 20 years ago on June 22nd, 1999.

July 15, 1997 was the release date of Supa Dupa Fly from a rapper/singer/producer/songwriter/visionary from Virginia. 22 years later, the artist formerly known as “Misdemeanour, Yall” materialized onto the cover of Marie Claire and gave an interview worth a read about what she has planned for the future and reflects on her two decade reign. Judging by her recent performance at Essence Fest, Ms Elliott has a large catalog to live up to, but it will not be difficult for her to continue to add to her list of hits.

You’ve all seen the Hot Girl Summer playlist we released on Monday and I want to give Missy her flowers. She been telling men, “Where’s her money? Where’s her dough?” long before City Girls were scamming and she made a song for the boys she likes. I always preferred the remix version with Eve, Q-Tip, and Nas. Thank you, Missy! I love you! Hot Boy Summer!
