Cooperated with The Chrysler Group to support the launching of its Jeep Commander, Missy Elliott once again has confirmed her status as one of the most celebrated female artists in the world. This merely was an addition to what the African-American rapper had accomplished during the year of 2005, which among others include six MTV Music Award nominations as well as the glorious success of her sixth album, “The Cookbook” (2005). The latter even has soared to the 2nd rank at both Billboard's Top 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Charts while sold more than 170,000 copies after one week being released. Conclusively, it had been a distinct proof that Elliott still maintains her skillful touch to create an exceptional work of music.

Born as Melissa Arnette Elliott on July 1, 1971 in Portsmouth, Virginia, U.S., little Missy experienced a gloomy childhood for she grew up with an abusive father. During this time, she often witnessed his ill treatment toward her mother, leading her to seek solace by imagining herself as a performer. Unable to bear her husband's torment, the mother finally decided to leave and took her only daughter along, raising the little child on her own. Getting inspired by her mother's courage and independence to start anew, Missy determined to materialize her dream of becoming a formidable artist. Together with LaShawn Shellman, Chonita Coleman and Radiah Scott, she established an R&B group called Sista in the late 1980s.
