Missy Elliot is currently working on her seventh studio album, which would also be her first in over a decade. With this, she has decided to bring some young talents to help her on the project. In a recent interview with NDLYSS, news revealed that Elliott would be working with Atlanta-based artists Wili Hendrixs and Michael Artistotle to help produce her forthcoming album.
The two ATL up-and-comers have been working together for years now and it looks like it will all pay off working with Missy Elliott. With the thriving music scene in Atlanta, getting to know these two prospects would be ideal. Hendrixs is best known for his work behind the boards and Michael Aristotle is best known as a rapper.
“Our plan wasn’t to work with Missy, it just happened randomly,” Hendrixs told the site. “She heard the music and realized that this sound was her sound back then but in our days time. We started to put our minds [together] and think, ‘What should Missy [sound] like in 2018?’”
Fans have been anticipating a Missy album for some time now and knowing it will drop soon has us all excited.
