For this week's Throwback Thursday video we take it to Virginia with Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott.

Missy has been out of the spotlight for a few years now, but her presence has most definitely been felt. Whether she's writing lyrics or arranging the vocals or handling production with friend and long-time collaborator, Tim 'Timbaland' Mosley, Missy is still making moves. She has pinned hits for Ginuwine, SWV, Destiny's Child and the late great Aaliyah. Which isn't to say that Elliott isn't a star in her own right. She has 5 Grammy Awards as a solo artist and a list of other awards and nominations so large, she should have a webpage just dedicated to that alone.

'Get Ur Freak' was just one of the many great club-bangers she's put out in career that's lasted more than 2 decades!

Big props to Missy as well for the 70 lbs she's lost recently. After she was diagnosed with Grave's disease, she's been living a healthier lifestyle. You go girl!!!
