New Missy Elliott Album Underway According To Timbaland

"It's on her," Timbaland says. "She got the first single, it's just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun."

With her last album The Cookbook celebrating its ninth anniversary earlier this month, Timbaland recently told Rolling Stone that a new Missy Elliott record is in the works.

“It's on her,” he said. “She got the first single, it's just a matter of when she wants to do it. We got the hollow-tip bullet in the gun. We have the game-changer right there.”

The news comes nearly two  years after Elliott’s last solo outings, a pair of Timbaland-produced singles in the form of “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat,” were released.

Speaking on their collaborative relationship, Timbaland admitted to never having seen Elliott record despite their long track record together.

"I've never watched her record, never in my whole career," he said. "I do it, she be like, 'OK, I got it,' and I leave the room. She kicks us out. That's how she do it: She does everything herself."

Remaining hush about the direction of the new album, Timbaland described the sound in general terms.

"It's something you ain't never heard Missy do,” he said. “It sounds today, but the future."

In 2005, Missy Elliott’s The Cookbook debuted on the Billboard 200 charts at #2 and has since been certified Gold. That album, a follow-up to her 2003 release This Is Not a Test!, only featured two songs produced by Timbaland.

During the interview with Rolling Stone, Timbaland also revealed progress on his own solo release.

"I have no features on it," he said of an album tentatively titled Opera Noir. "It's all about truth and what's going on around us."

Earlier today, Rolling Stone released a separate segment of the interview with Timbaland about his own album. 

"This is my Purple Rain solo album that I’m going to put out," he said. "I have no features on it. It’s called Opera Noir and it’s the most innovative work I’ve ever done. It’s all about truth and what’s going on around us. It’s about my personal truth. It’s one of the things that MediaTakeOut will care about, but I’m telling you what happened. I’m telling you: At this point, this happened. I’m telling you at this date, I’m telling you that I did this. I’m telling you that she did this or he did that."

    MOST OVER RATED "RAPPER" EVER, EVEN MORE SO THAN TUPAC...I DONT KNOW WHO THE F BUYS HER ALBUMS, NO HIP HOP HEADS WOULD BE SEEN DEAD WITH HER CATALOGUE IN THEIR COLLECTION. SERIOUSLY, DOES ANYONE GIVE A F ABOUT THIS FAT UGLY DYKE ?? NO.

    • PATHH88

      @ Real Talk I have heard many rappers from Busta to Ludacris to Nas to 50 cent even, and pop artists such as C Aguilera say that she is a "genius" lmfao And if you read some of the below comments, it is pretty evident some people hold her in high regard on this so called "hip hop" site, i mean someone actually compares her and timbaland to eric B & rakim, dilla & tip, snoop & dre, puffy & big.....so your comment is way off son... And to dismiss someone as over rated without listening to anything by them would be stupid, so of course i have listened to some of her stuff on youtube to ry and understand why such established artists have voiced their praise for her, i just don't get it whatsoever, i understand some of timbo's beat are good but she is garbage... And i dont get your hypocrisy statement, cos i say her and tupac are over rated i cant be a hip hop head ?!?! Son, i was spinning on my head in 84 and been collecting records,cds ever since, still do graf, still get busy on lino, you know, HIP HOP ?? I was around before pac was murdered and BELIEVE me when i tell you no one was feeling pac like that, no mention of the word legend, no mention of great lyricist, was not ranked with Rakim, Kane, KRS, Kool G Rap, Wu Tang, Nas....i mean after he died, young'uns took that and ran with it- legend lol He didn't make one solid album that can compete with Illmatic, Enter the 36 Chambers, Slaughtahouse, Paid In Full, Follow The Leader etc etc etc And yes, i believe she is a fat ugly dyke...

      Tupac has belonged to white college kids trying to act black for a very very long time. I got voice clips of college kids trying to rap Changes to impress black men and give them street authenticity.

      It would be really funny if hip hops Black Jesus had an undiagnosed mental issue

    • A

      Tupac is a 25 year old with possible mental issues (he has a bipolar sister). This man who promotes violence and promiscuity while hiding behind revolutionary ideals is single-handedly responsible for most of hip hop being the garbage it is today. They defend him with his revolutionary garbage and say that he was just "pretending" to be a thug to relate to the masses and politicize the gangbangers. Overrated doesn't even begin to cover it. We revere him as some sort of god just because he is dead. I can't go a week without hearing him namedropped in some way in a hip hop interview or rap song. Everybody that worships him has sub par IQ. I hate Bill O Reilly but he was right about Tupac

    • RealTalk

      Overrated? No one even ever brings her up. Where you living? Have you heard her albums? Probably not. No hip hop heads, but i guess you are one hey? Probably not cause you're calling tupac extremely overrated... Hypocrisy much? Fat ugly dyke... Why'd i bother. Grow up.

    if blacks are getting killed en masse every day, shouldn't we know intimately the horror of death and gun crime? why are we so numb that we can freely glorify and use sentiments like "the hollow tip is in the gun" as if that's something to be proud of?

      google NY homicide 2003-2011 and you will see both the perpetrators and victims are hispanic or black. with hardly any whites.

    • Anonymous

      I put a link to a NYTimes article about homicide rates that showed majority of homicides in NY from 2003-2011 had perpetrators that were either black or hispanic. Then I asked why they use a phrase like "hollow tip is in the gun" when it's extremely hurtful and they know the pain intimately. And my comment was deleted by HHDX staff. Trying to hide the truth to further your agenda of encouraging violence between minorities? This is the biggest uncle tom site.

      because that turn of phrase sells to sheltered white folk

    • Anonymous

      nowhere near as much as black and hispanic. http://projects.nytimes.com/crime/homicides/map Click on "Race by victim" and "race by perpetrator". They are both majorly black or hispanic. So tell me, if blacks are so intimate with the pain of gun crime and death, why is it most glorified in hip hop culture to the point where Timbaland casually uses the phrase "hollow tip is in the gun" as if that isn't an incredibly hurtful act? Other than some obscure country songs you never hear whites glorify it in such a casual way of speech.
