Time can bring changes to someone's life. And so it works for rapper Missy Elliott, who after her previous 5 albums has just realized that she is one of hip-hop's finest and no need to tell or prove it over and over to anyone. Hence, Elliott just comes the way she is in ''The Cookbook," which is her 6th album.
Has changed the way she thinks of herself, still Elliott comes to herself as the point of her album, containing a more inspired material. The album, shows Elliott's exuberant, try-anything-once, bang-on-everything-including-the-kitchen-sink, includes single "Lose Control" featuring Ciara and Fat Man Scoop.
