Missy Elliott Bio

Birthdate:: July 1, 1971
Birthplace: Portsmouth, Virginia

Missy Elliott is one of the world’s most successful female rappers. Find out how she conquered the rap world and earned six platinum records in her all new Kidzworld bio!


Class Clown

Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott (born Melissa Arnette Elliott) knew from the start that she wanted to be a performer, but her nonstop energy got her pegged as a class clown. But Missy knew she was destined for stardom—she even sang in her room to an audience of dolls using a broomstick microphone!


Missy had a rough childhood, but she was one smart cookie. She jumped two grades ahead, but she missed her old friends so Missy purposely flunked all her tests until she was put back in her old class!


Tight With Timbaland

Missy teamed up with her childhood friend Timbaland and the writer/producer duo rocked the airwaves in the early ‘90’s. Missy and Timbaland penned songs for everyone from Mariah Carey to Ginuwine, but Missy really made a name for herself with her debut album, “Supa Dupa Fly.” Missy’s sound was unlike anything the rap world had heard before. Her fresh sounds and infectious beats quickly had audiences on their feet. Missy has since gone on to score six platinum albums, win 5 Grammy Awards (she’s been nominated 20 times!) and change the rap game for the better. These days he’s still in the game and keepin’ it real like only Missy can.


Missy Says:

"I remember in school writing Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson and asking them to come get me out of class. I would imagine them running down the hall and asking my teacher, 'Ms. Daniels, can we get Missy out of class? We're here to see Missy.'”


“Music is a male-dominated field. Women are not always taken as seriously as we should be, so sometimes we have to put our foot down. To other people, that may come across as being a b****, but it's just knowing what we want and being confident."

A child asked his father, "How were people born?" So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now." The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!" His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about her side of the family."
