She Created Her Own Lane.
No one can remotely imitate Missy’s impression on the game. In an industry where women artists are marketed to look a very specific way, “Misdemeanor” violated all the rules. She experimented with new sounds, storytelling music videos and a never before seen style sense. She filled a void in the industry that no one even realized was missing until she appeared. While her peers, particularly female hip-hop artists, were taking a more sensual approach, Missy covered head-to-toe in baggy yellow ‘fits and released videos with buzzing bees swarming her face.
