LISTEN: New Missy Elliott Track with Lil Wayne!
Leaked track may be culled from Missy's first new album since 2005! Hear it now.
It’s been far too long since we’ve heard new material from one of hip-hop’s true originals, Missy Elliott. But Santa dropped a nice little gift down our collective chimneys this weekend when “All 4 U,” purportedly the first taste of Missy’s first album in half a decade, leaked. Listen below!
Lyrically dirty, and sonically sinister, too, “All 4 U” melds a Dr. Dre-esque keyboard tinkle with a subwoofer-friendly bass groove. “We gonna keep it sexy y’all,” Missy shouts as the beats kick in — and she’s not joking. “I don’t want your money money / I just want you up on me,” she coos in the first verse.
Later, Lil Wayne’s cameo gets even raunchier. First, Weezy raps, “I know whatchu lookin’ for / Got you butt naked in the condo,” and then drops a boast about fingernails and, well, that special part of a lady’s anatomy.
The track sounds a bit unfinished — the version we heard only contains one verse, one chorus, and Weezy’s cameo — but it’s a promising, if a bit tawdry return for Miss E. Her forthcoming/long-delayed album, Block Party, is expected in the first half of 2010.
