Missy Elliott hasn’t released an album in nine years and it is not looking like she will be dropping another one anytime soon. In a recent interview the hip-hop veteran explained why she has not been in any rush to release new music.
Missy recently sat down with Yahoo’s “The Yo Show” to explain the reasoning behind her not releasing new music. She says the only thing holding her back from releasing new music is that she is waiting to make that game changing sound.
“When I create something, it’s gotta be special and it can’t just be to throw something out there because I feel like I’m Missy,” said the 42-year-old rapper. “I gotta feel like what I’m giving the fans is 100 percent and that it’s game-changing. I don’t just throw out microwave records.”
She also explained how she feels music is different now and wants to give her fans the best of her ability before releasing it.
“Just being inspired by things is what I’m grabbing for because music is different now,” she explained. “Not to say that it’s bad, it’s just different now, so I’m just trying to make sure that what I give is 100 percent because I know that expectations is high from my fans and it’s high of myself.”
