Diddy and Missy Elliot both rose to stardom in the Golden Era of Hip Hop, the 1990s.
Diddy left his print in Hip Hop forever with Bad Boy Entertainment, which is responsible for a lot of the best songs from that era that people still listen to today. Missy on the other hand has a crazy flow and authenticity that has not been matched yet. Missy shared a fun fact that may or may not take you by surprise.
The mogul put her on her first track as a solo artist called “The Things You Do” by Gina Thompson in 1996. Missy credits Diddy for putting her on the map and let him know that she’s ” humbly grateful [he] gave [her] crazy a** style a shot”.
