It s been an incredible year for Missy Elliott. Just since the spring, she s received an honorary doctorate degree, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, received her long overdue Video Vanguard award at the VMAs, and released an EP that speaks to her Iconology. Today, she s released the video for DripDemeanor from her Iconology EP, and, surprising absolutely no one, she delivers the same one of a kind, inventive visuals that have characterized her decades long career. The video opens with Missy flanked by her dancers in a form fitting black latex jumpsuit, complete with a characteristically bold blue hair color. Elliott won the Video Vanguard award for her years of constant invention and reinvention of what artists specifically female rappers can do in videos, and always pushes the envelope by creating something that s never been seen before. The DripDemeanor video is no different: from her doughnut and skyscraper shaped hairdos to her fluorescent color palettes, it s classic Missy from beginning to end, and feels especially satisfying to see her artistry continue to evolve more than twenty years into her career.
