Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
“Each record has its own spices and herbs. Each record is cooking up a hot recipe for a hot album,” noted Missy Elliot of her sixth studio set, THE COOKBOOK. A return to form for the hip-hop heroine, the Atlantic collection features Timbaland and The Neptunes among several top producers, while the talent in front of the microphone includes Slick Rick, Mary J. Blige, Fantasia and M.I.A. But chef Missy ensures that the kitchen never feels overcrowded, and driven by such singles as “We Run This” and the Top 10 “Lose Control,” the 2005 album reached #2 on the Billboard chart. A bold lyricist and irrepressible performer, Missy Elliot stirred up one of her tastiest releases yet with the Gold-certified, Grammy-nominated THE COOKBOOK.
