missy elliott recruits 90s female rap legends for 'i'm better' remix
Lil' Kim, Eve, and Trina hop on the all-star, all-female remix of Miss Misdemeanour's Lamb-assisted banger.
Missy Elliott might have enough talent to fill a Super Bowl stadium, but she's never been a one-woman show. Earlier this year the collab-happy Queen of Rap dropped the Lamb-featuring "I'm Better" — the follow-up to 2015's Pharrell-produced "WTF" — a heavy-hitting single (and surreal video) unlike anything we'd previously heard from Miss Misdemeanour. Now she has released a surprise remix of the track featuring three fellow members of the rap royal family: Lil' Kim, Eve, and Trina. "Brought out some legends for this one!" Missy wrote on Twitter to announce the surprise all-femme banger.
Kim the Queen Bee — who worked with Missy on the 1997 girls-night-out jam "Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)" — kicks off the new track with an explicit verse. "You cannot be me, no, never," she spits. "Ain't gotta explain why I'm better / Your man is a dog, he taste my kitty, and he say my pussy is wetter." Trina follows up with an equally raunchy few bars, before Eve jumps in with a testament to her own success. "I'm so anti / Winning in life by a landslide / I know you see me, you see me / Your chick wanna be me, but she could never be me," she raps.
