Missy Elliott is Back with New Music! Her and Timbaland Speak Out on the Rumoured Aaliyah Album

Check out all the female rappers stepping back unto the music scene: Foxy Brown recently announced her comeback while on stage with Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill now performs here and there, Eve just announced she will be on BET's Hip Hop Awards cypher this year and now we have Missy Elliott coming out with new music!

Missy and Timbaland team up together again to release two new singles: “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat" (listen below). They stopped by The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 this morning (September 18) to promote their new music and they also talked about rumors surrounding the upcoming Aaliyah album and why they chose not to participate.

When asked if anyone from Drake's camp reached out about Aaliyah's new album:

[Timbaland] Let me tell you the craziest thing, is it really real? I don’t know if this is a real topic.

[Missy Elliott]  I can say this, nobody has reached out to me. It’s not even about reaching out to me, I personally want to respect her family. If her mother or father or brother hasn’t said they want to make an Aaliyah album. Yeah, we still mourn, but not the way this family (does). So until they come and say Missy and Tim we’re ready to do an Aaliyah album, we just pull back from it.

When asked about Drake's tattoo of Aaliyah:

[Timbaland] Has anybody really saw ‘em, saw ‘em?
