Missy Elliott ft. Timbaland : 9th Inning and Triple Threat

It’s impossible to overstate just how important Tim “Timbaland” Mosley and Missy Elliott have been in the development of popular music over the last decade and a half. Writing and/ or producing (individually or together) for a seemingly endless list of pop and hip hop’s biggest names – from Aaliyah and Destiny’s Child to Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado to Jay-Z and Busta Rhymes and even Bjork – the pair completely reshaped the landscape of the American charts (and therefore – musically – the world) in the late ’90s, and released some pretty groundbreaking material of their own to boot. Elliott has been working on a new solo album (the follow-up to 2005’s The Cookbook) for a while now, and this week released the first tastes from that hotly-anticipated LP, provisionally titled Block Party; “9th Inning” and “TripleThreat” – out digitally via Atlantic Records – were co-produced with Timbaland, who features heavily on both cuts.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz.
