In 1999 Missy Elliott released what would be one of her most recognizable songs to date Hot Boyz feat. Lil Mo produced by Timbaland from her 2nd album Da Real World, but the remix feat. Eve, Nas & Q-Tip broke & set records. Reaching to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The remix also was #1 on the R&B charts & spent 16 weeks at #1 on the Rap singles chart.

Missy is true innovator & a musical genius. Missy understood what it took to make a great record. She understood how to do a proper remix without taking too much from the original song as well. Something this generation of artists & producers lack.
