When one person makes it, the whole team eats — especially when you’re Missy Elliott. The legendary emcee took to social media to remind the world that she has always been one to carve her own lane and that she wasn’t afraid to ensure that her friends were with her every step of the way. “Always been a leader,” wrote the Virginia native in a tweet. “When I got signed I fought for my brothers Timbaland and Magoo. I took a chance and told the label I can’t do a[n] album without them…so they flew them up and they got signed and the world witnessed their greatness. The rest is HERSTORY.”

Missy Elliott is a legend — who is also all about her coins. The DMV legend found herself in the headlines when Jowell — of the popular reggaeton group, Jowell Y Randy — brought her name up in an interview. In his interview, he claimed that Elliott threatened to sue and “demanded millions” when it was revealed that the Bad Bunny hit, “Safaera,” sampled more than a little bit from “Get Ur Freak On.” Naturally, Jowell’s comment unleashed a tirade of online hatred against Missy Elliott. And at one point, things got so bad that an Ariana Grande fan page called out Jowell for his comments in his interview. Thank you jowel! Thank you for all the hate your interview is bringing Missy! Had you explained that there was 6 samples and 15 writers maybe they wouldn't all be attacking Missy for no reason because she took "everything" https://t.co/uNGNZawPqm — Ariana Fanpage (@BigAriGrande) March 16, 2022 Things only got worse when Jowell doubled down on his comments. Fuck that! Let them enjoy...
