Missy Elliot was raised in Portsmouth, Virginia, where her father was based in the US Marines. Being four years old, she apparently decided that she wanted to become a singer, though nobody took that thought seriously. In 1990, the girl graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School, and the same year Fayze, the R&B band, was formed by Missy, consisting of Radiah Scott, Chonita Coleman, La’Shawn Shellman and Missy Elliot. The girls attracted the attention of DeVante Swing, the producer, who helped them to sign a contract with Electra Records, and changed the title of the band to Sista. The band released several singles and studio albums, however they were not very successful, and the members decided to go their separate ways.

Missy Elliot decided to pursue the solo career. In 1997, she signed a contract with the record label The Goldmind, Elektra and started working. To date, she has released 71 singles, six studio albums, 18 music videos and a compilation album. The most successful singles, which received certifications for sales, were “Sock It 2 Me” (1997) featuring Da Brat – gold certification, “Hot Boyz” (1999) featuring Lil’ Mo, Nas, Eve and Q-Tip – platinum, “Get Ur Freak On” (2001) – silver, “4 My People” (2002) featuring Eve – silver, “Work It” (2002) – gold and “Lose Control” (2005) featuring Ciara and Fatman Scoop – gold. What is more, all the studio albums received certificates for sales, and were very popular not only in USA but around the world. All the albums appeared on music charts, too, and took high positions on the main chart of the USA: second place for “Miss E… So Addictive” (2001) and “The Cookbook” (2005), and third place for “Supa Dupa Fly” (1997) and “Under Construction” (2002). “Da Real World” (1999) reached 10th position and “This Is Not a Test!” (2003) 13th on the same USA music chart. Of course, all these recording succeses contributed significantly yo Missy Elliot’s net worth.

In addition to this, Missy Elliot has appeared in several films including “Honey” (2003) directed by Bille Woodruff, “Fade to Black” (2004) directed by Patrick Paulson and Michael John Warren, “Just for Kicks” (2005) directed by Thibaut de Longeville and Lisa Leone. Moreover, she has appeared in episodes of various TV series, including “Family Matters” (1997), “The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott” (2005), “My Super Sweet 16” (2008), “What Chilli Wants” (2010) and others. All those appearances increased her wealth, too.

Recently, she was absent from the entertainment industry. It has been reported that this happened because of a hyperthyroid disorder which Missy suffers from.

In her personal life, Missy Elliot admits that she is ready to create a family, however, does not reveal anything more about her private life.
