Missy Elliott - This Is Not A Test! mp3 album

Unfortunately, Missy Elliott did just that on last year's Under Construction, proclaiming the unnecessary before each track. It's nitpicking criticism, but enough reason to proclaim dark, dense This Is Not a Test as the new, and likely temporary, Best Missy Elliott Album. Time has come to examine the cultural idiosyncrasies of Virginia and discover how the region produced the core clique of pop innovators

No Missy album would be complete without the extensive guest appearances. This year's roster includes: Mary J Blige, Jay Z (again) Nelly and . elly, as well as enlisting the latest recruits from the "currently hot to work with" list.

Listeners shouldn't blame Missy Elliott for slipping into a holding pattern for her fifth album, This Is Not a Test! Early on she arrived at a distinctive sound - the confident, clubbed-up jam with little melodic power but endless reserves of kinetic energy, courtesy of Timbaland's rubbery productions - and she refined it well with hits like 2001's "Get Ur Freak On" and the following year's "Work It" and "Gossip Folks.

But This Is Not a Test is not all about Miss E. With her beat-wizard buddy Timbaland, she's on a crusade to revitalize what they feel is a stagnating commercial rap marketplace. It reaches its apex on "Wake Up" (featuring Jay-Z), where she reminds us that wearing big Liberace chains and driving high-end sport utility vehicles is not all that important. As per the other Missy Elliott's albums, the album begins with an intro which in this instance features Mary J. Blige. Then when proceed into "Pass That Dutch", one of the albums better tracks, but it isn't stellar by any means. So Addictive) or "Work It" (Under Construction) had.

Complete your Missy Elliott collection. It is a nice record! the beats on this one are mostly this great hiphop sound of the mid 2000s. timba and neptunes style. i´m not to much into RnB, so there are some song i dont like but the hiphop-beats on this one are really funky. i wish she would do another album with this minimalistic beats. My favorit for the moment is "Ragtime Interludeim Really Hot". What else can i say? You better Digg it! Rispondi Avvertimi Helpful.

After seven years, Missy Elliott's chief competition is herself. Although the Virginian rapper's fifth album is predictably better than 90% of the year's hip-hop, it stands up less well against her own remarkable back-catalogue So Addictive's club-inspired exuberance and Under Construction's vibrant redux of old school hip-hop, This Is Not a Test is relatively aimless. The ballads drag and many of the sparse grooves simply echo previous hits. The peaks, happily, are as high as ever

This Is Not a Test! is the fifth studio album by American rapper Missy Elliott. Pass That Dutch": 'The Rapper' by The Jaggerz (1970). Magic Mountain' by Eric Burdon and War (1970). Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' by Santa Esmeralda (1977). Potholes in My Lawn' by De La Soul (1989). Scenario' by A Tribe Called Quest feat. Leaders of the New School (1991).

Elliott's fourth album, 2002's Under Construction (see 2002 in music) is known as the best selling female rap album with . million copies sold in the United States. In 2002, Elliott won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Solo Performance for "Get Ur Freak On". In 2003, Under Construction received Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album and Album. The New York Times designated Under Construction "this year's best hip-hop album. Elliott released two singles off of Under Construction. Elliott has since stated that "the album This Is Not A Test came out extremely too quickly for me. I didn't want it to come out when it di. In 2004, Elliott was featured on Ciara's hit single "1, 2 Step", with her verse interpolating Teena Marie's single, "Square Biz".
