Missy Elliott is back – but did she really ever leave?

The hip-hop icon has returned just days before her Video Vanguard Award honor and performance at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards on Monday to surprise fans with her first new project since her 2005 album "The Cookbook," and she wants the world to know that she's not new to this game.

Yearslong fans already know this, but the veteran artist is back to remind everyone of her icon status with her new five-song EP, "Iconology," a master class at the school of Missy Misdemeanor Elliott.

"Iconology" comes after a handful of singles over the past few years, a recent feature on Lizzo's "Tempo" and a long overdue induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame as the first female rapper to earn that honor.

Produced by Elliott, Timbaland and Wili Hendrix, the project brings back the Missy fans know and love, with booming bass beats that are the perfect backdrop to showcase her lyrical prowess.

This album features International Reggae Artists such as Black Uhuru, The No-Maddz, Anthony B, Nature Ellis, Bounty Killer, and Sizzla. The collection rocks with the aggressive, street-tough dancehall sounds of Bounty Killer to the sweet melodies of Nature Ellis.

It continues the beautiful journey of spreading love and captivates the audience with mind blowing inspirations. The No-Maddz, with their dub poetry, seeks heaven on earth and explores the ailments of society and police oppression. Sizzla, who is one of the leaders of the conscious dancehall movement, croons with his original style and creativity with his single “Not Alone”. This album is truly a gem organized with very relevant acts of Reggae today.
