Supa Dupa Fly: Where Are They Now?

Sixteen years ago, Missy Elliott not only made her hip hop debut with her first LP Supa Dupa Fly, but further opened the landscape for where a female MC can travel stylistically and with imagery. Accompanied by Timbaland's stuttering, unpredictable electronic beats, Missy's masterpiece playfully ventured between hip hop, R&B and soul. And videos for singles like "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" keenly introduced surrealism to hip hop's urban realism. On the LP's 16th anniversary, we look at what the artists who helped to make Supa Dupa so fly are up to these days.
