We only jumpstarted our Sounds From The Astral Plane series a few weeks ago, but this edition will (unfortunately) most likely be the last of 2012. We do have a few nice features coming your way in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled. This week, we have two (!) Missy Elliot reworks, a quartet of amorphous mixes and more on-point Kid Smpl night bus vibes. Much love as always.
Here is a Remix for the Hall of Remixes! Missy Elliot's Loose Control has been trap-attacked by Lucky Beard and Stabber , and they call it the V.I.P. Version . So if you're not V.I.P. , I'm going to have to ask you to press the X in the corner of your screen and quit reading this and/or listening to this. It's sadly not for everyone. If you in fact happened to be V.I.P. , crank this shib up until the neighbors complain, flip them off, and Lose Control . Or [...]
The dream team of Missy Elliott and Timbaland are back with not one, but two brand new singles, "9th Inning" and "Triple Threat." The tracks, which were both debuted in a live performance over Labor Day weekend this year, do a good job of recalling classic Missy. She rhymes boastfully over hard, danceable beats. "Now I'm in the 9th inning/Thought I fell off?/I ain't quite finished/Yeah, I'm 'bout to put my foot in it/Talk with it, walk with it, I'm no gimmick/2012 there'll be no games/Real rap, real bars/I'm not playing," she spits on "9th Inning." [...]
The memories that just came rushing back when I heard that Missy Elliott and Timbaland teamed back up for not one but two new singles are just too indescribable to put into words. In her first official solo recordings in over four years and with her longtime partner in crime Timbaland on both the guest vocals and production, the two new singles "9th Inning" and "Triple Threat" really bring back a sense of nostalgia. And with the new songs comes a renewed sound and a fresh look at what made this duo so dynamic and successful [...]
In true Missy form, she is going fans to much audio to handle. Shortly after dropping off her new single, " 9th Inning ," she has released another track with Timbaland called "Triple Threat." In contrast to her other single, "Triple Threat" takes advantage of the futuristic production Timbaland has come to be known for since his work with artists like Justin Timberlake. But Missy makes sure to keep things gritty as she threatens to "smack whoever called her irrelevant" and reminds everyone that anything she touches "blows up." See why Missy considers herself a "Triple [...]
Timbaland has been teasing Missy Elliott's return for a few weeks, and he, thankfully, wasn't making an empty promise. Everyone's favorite "Work It" rapper has dropped her new single and she's bringing Timb for the ride. While Missy has flirted with multiple genres in the past, "9th Inning" sees the versatile MC returning to the edgy hiphop beats and lyrics that characterized her earlier albums like Da Real World . "All we do is make hits" brags a feisty Missy over a piano laden beat. The Misdemeanor is back! Check out her return [...]
It took a little longer than expected , but Missy Elliott has released the full-length versions of her two new singles. "9th Inning" & "Triple Threat" mark the rapper's first solo recordings in four years, and will likely appear on her upcoming studio album, Block Party . Elliott's longtime collaborator Timbaland served as producer. Listen to both cuts at Miss Info .
Here's a 90-second snippet of Missy Elliott' s new single "9th Inning". The track marks the rapper's first solo recording in four years, and will likely appear on her upcoming studio album, Block Party . Elliott's longtime collaborator Timbaland served as producer.
It's been four years since Missy Elliott released a new single, and seven since she released her last album, 20052s The Cookbook . But if you believe her frequent collaborator/producer Timbaland , we're just a week away (!) from hearing two new singles from the Misdemeanor. Timbaland wrote on Twitter : "oh snapp yall my sista @MissyElliott is droppin her singles #9thinning and #triplethreat labor day weekend. watch it world we backk!!!" "9th Inning" was first performed by Elliott and Timbaland during a concert in [...]
Filed under: News , New Music Getty Images | WireImage Earlier this week, a new Aaliyah song titled "Enough Said" debuted featuring refreshing vocals from the late singer paired with a verse from rapper Drake . While the track had fans celebrating the songstress' voice on fresh material and critics berating Drizzy's involvement, there was one thing that could not be denied: people were excited about the prospect of a forthcoming Aaliyah album , [...]
M.I.A.'s 'Bad Girls' just became much badder. The Sri Lankan rapper has recruited legend Missy Elliott and her protege, Rye Rye, to add their spin on the track, whose video was recently featured as one of MJF's best of 2012 so far. The verses aren't the only things receiving a makeover, though, as producer Switch flips the beat with one of his eccentric productions. Along with 2 other remixes (one of which will feature Azealia Banks), this song will appear on the single's remix album due out July 3. Hit the jump to hear the revised [...]

J. Cole "Damn Cole World," J. Cole tweeted late Monday night. Damn is right. The North Carolina rapper was responding to the leak of his long-awaited debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story , a week before its September 27 release date. The bad news for Cole is good news for fans who have been waiting to hear one of the most anticipated tracks, his collaboration with Missy Elliott , entitled "Nobody's Perfect." This track is definitely one that, upon listening to the leak, would make purchasing Cole [...]
Timbaland, Demi Lovato - Getty Less than a week away from the release of Demi Lovato 's new album, Unbroken , and we're finally getting to hear one of the most buzzed-about tracks from the set: "All Night Long." Not only is "All Night Long" an obvious standout because it showcases a more R&B-leaning, sassy Demi delivering lines like "Don't make plans/Come on with me, we'll stay up all night long/I want you and I want you bad/Let's keep the party going all night long," but because it also reunites the extraordinary [...]
Missy Elliott took a break from working on her long-awaited comeback album to join Katy Perry 's drunken party on the remix to Katy's latest single, "Last Friday Night (TGIF)." "It's a Friday night now here we go/I ain't no stripper but I work the pole," Missy opens the track with. Her all-too-brief verse, against a newly added bass-busting beat, continues with a shout out to the bartender pouring the good stuff, getting so twisted she can't see, and waking up with a hot guy in her bed. Then it's back to regularly scheduled [...]
Justin Timberlake's newest movie Bad Teacher was released in theaters this past weekend, scoring an impressive $31 million at the box-office . The success of his newest cinematic venture is just another nail in the coffin that was his music career. He's made it clear that "music is not my focus right now" , but when, JT, when?! As desperate as we are for Timberlake to step back in the studio (and not just for another Lonely Island digital short ), he isn't the only artist at the top of their game who [...]
