Missy Elliott is the smartest lady on the Rn'B block, a shrewd, multimillionaire businesswoman whose collaborations with her producer and best friend Timbaland have changed the face of black American music. Her new album is endlessly fascinating, a mix of bizarrely inventive hip-hop rhythms and funky soul that's brilliantly carried off by Missy's masterful rapping. With an array of big-name guests including Redman, Method Man, Jay-Z, and Ginuwine So Addictive is like a mini-dissertation on black urban culture in America - and you can dance to it. Who could ask for more?
