“When I create something, it’s got to be special, and it can’t just be to throw something out there because I feel like I’m Missy,” said the Virginia native. “I got to feel like what I’m giving the fans is 100% and that it’s game-changing. I don’t just throw out microwave records.”

Miss E. assures that writer’s block is not the cause for the delay. According to the “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” rapper, she is still searching for inspiration.

“Just being inspired by things is what I’m grabbing for,” explains Missy. “It’s different now, so I’m just trying to make sure that what I give is 100% because I know that expectations is high from my fans, and it’s high of myself.”

While Missy fans may have to wait a little while longer for her next LP, she does reveal that listeners will get to her work with Faith Evans. The former roommates are collaborating on Faith’s upcoming album.
