This week's 'Feature'd Album of the Week' showcases Missy Elliot, and her debut studio album 'Supa Dupa Fly'. The album released in 1997, and was recorded and produced solely by Timbaland. Supa Dupa Fly debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and included features from artists like Busta Rhymes, Ginuwine, Keith Sweat, Queen Latifah, Lil' Kim, K-Ci & JoJo and Aaliyah. The album's lyrical content reveals Missy's complex vision about womanhood; her demand for respect and her desire for fulfilling intimacy with lovers and friends. The sounds are described as 'bump n' grind electronica', strongly influenced by the rhythms of dancehall reggae, but fuller and modern.
