Let’s face it — anyone who was popping before the Internet blew up is like ancient history to some the kids growing up today. It’s almost like the world as a whole started over once Youtube and social media became a thing, making all the artist who put in work before that feel like dinosaurs.

Missy Misdemeanor Elliott was way ahead her time when it came to production, melodies and spitting bars.
