Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
Missy Elliot's influence on hip-hop music has been enormous. In an industry dominated by men and seen by many as a form of artistic expression that is well outside the bounds of what mainstream culture should be, Elliot has shown what hip-hop can and should be and how it should be viewed in an artistic environment. Elliot's life has not been an easy one; her personal life has been fraught with difficulties, but her ability to persevere and her faith have kept her grounded and allowed her to reach heights that few women in the hip-hop industry have managed. While Elliot's talent as a singer is what got her into the industry, she spent several years as a songwriter before she released her first album. Elliot's albums have debuted near the top of the music chart, and her collaborations with different artists have allowed her to reach many different audiences. Fully illustrated with full-color photos, Collins offers not only a brief biography of this influential woman but also valuable insight into the history of hip-hop music and the industry. This text is part of the "Hip-Hop Stars" series. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
