Count Missy Elliott as a Ski Mask The Slump God fan. On Tuesday (Aug. 1), the rap legend retweeted a clip of the South Florida rapper’s new “Catch Me Outside” video and gave him props for doing justice to the song’s Timbaland-produced instrumental, which she herself used nearly 20 years ago.
“Oh he rode the heck out of this Fiyahthis my She’s a Bith beat! Me & @Timbaland did this beat in 1999 & it still Bang! big up,” wrote Missy on Twitter.
It makes sense that Missy would be feeling Ski Mask’s take on her old “Shes a Bitch” instrumental. For one, she and Ski used similarly animated flows on the insanely dope Timbo track. For two, you could almost see the track as a sort of homage to Missy. Either way, we’re pretty sure Missy Misdemeanor will be getting into more of Ski’s music if that was her introduction to the young rapper.
Missy’s cosign is just another sign Ski is an artist on the rise. About a month ago, the rap game newcomer dropped his You Will Regret project, a release filled with tracks showcasing the rapper’s dynamic ability.
Here’s to more Ski in the very near future. Check out Missy’s tweet below.
