CLASSIC CUT: Missy Elliot ft Da Brat – Sock It 2 Me (1997)

Back when Missy and Busta were battling to see who could have the wilder Hype Williams video (can anybody even afford him in their budget nowadays?). Love the Mega Man theme even though it had absolutely nothing to do with the song lol. And this is one of those instances where the edited version is waaaay better than the album version (mainly Da Brat’s parts). I just noticed that Brat’s verse had absolutely nothing to do with the theme of this song and she just picked a random verse from her rhyme book…but she still bumped it nevertheless.

Missy’s an hip-hop abnormality because for all intents and purposes, she shouldn’t have been a star with her body type, especially competing with vixens like Lil Kim (who co-stars in this video) and Foxy. Plus she wasn’t the greatest singer in the world. But, her lyrics and personality was so fun that she made you forget about all that.

Interesting tidbit: This song has the same sample (“Ready or Not, Here I Come (Can’t Hide From Love)” by the Delfonics) as Three 6 Mafia’s “Who Run It”
