Female hip hop legend Missy Elliot stepped on stage last night in Atlanta, to accept her award at the 2023 Black Music Honors at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. And fans were shocked at just how skinny Missy had gotten.
In the 2000s, Missy was known for being a BIG girl, with BIG talent. The legendary rapper left the limelight, about a decade ago, and resurfaced recently – appearing at last years Grammys and other shows.

Missy is a rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. She embarked on her music career with R&B girl group Sista in the early-mid 1990s and later became a member of the Swing Mob collective along with childhood friend and longtime collaborator Timbaland, with whom she worked on projects for American R&B acts Aaliyah, 702, Total, and SWV. Following several collaborations and guest appearances, she launched her solo career in 1997 with her debut album Supa Dupa Fly, which spawned the top 20 single “Sock It 2 Me”. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, the highest charting debut for a female rapper at the time.
