Watch Pharrell Interview Missy Elliott On OTHERtone Radio
We certainly wouldn't have been able to say it at the beginning of 2015, but it's hard to imagine last year without the resurgence of visionary performer and artist, Missy Elliott. "WTF" was such a massive surprise (and executed impeccably) that it not only put one of the most influential artists of a generation back on the map with her own damn continent, and now we're all living on it.
Though she's discusses it in a recent interview with I-D, Missy Misdemeanor's comeback is still something of a mystery, one that she delved a bit deeper into on a recent visit to Pharrell's OTHERtone Radio studio. There, the two Virginian perennials discussed not only Missy's return, but her very first entry into the music industry, when Puff Daddy pulled her into a booth and instilled in her the confidence needed to go on and change the game forever more. After gushing over Diddy's keen eye for talent and the countless careers he's started, the conversation shifts over to the eternal malleability of Skateboard P and how his persistence and studiousness has made him a legend in his own right. Peep the full interview down below and keep your eyes on us for the latest from Missy Elliott (fingers crossed that it won't be too long.)
