757 represent - Timbaland is easily in the GOAT conversation for production. The whole album is funky and soulful af, and so deep and rich. I could probably listen 10 times in a row and hear new elements. I really can't believe this was '97 - it feels way ahead of its time.

This album is really a trip to listen to in 2021. It's all about the vibe, above all else. The standard formula is Missy's smooth vocalizing setting the scene of a blunt smoke-filled room in late 90's NYC, followed by a guest emcee coming in to lay down the raps. It is maybe a tad repetitive, but it makes for an excellent chill album that's easy to listen to.

Another classic album in one of my favourite genres. Very much of its time, but Missy is one of the best and it was great listening to all her early stuff again. A couple of the tunes on the 2nd half of the album dragged a bit but on the whole it was great fun to listen to.

I don’t know if it’s the slower pace, the beats, or the samples used, but this is undeniably 90s and that it comfortingly familiar even when I have never heard any track beyond The Rain. Is this the best hip hop album? No. Would I put this on while I get shit done. Absolutely. I hover between 3 and 4 but I think pure nostalgia bumps this up to 4.

A hip hop album with strong R&B influences. I'm sure this album was a major impact on encouraging female artists into the industry. The main appeal is the fantastic production by Timbaland which gives it a very futuristic funky sound to lots of the tracks (you should just see the videos), from space sound effects to robotic drones. Out of this world beats consistently throughout. That being said, despite her sexy voice, I don't think Missy is a great rapper, and for most of the second side, I was just curious what Timbaland was going to try to do.

Wanna like this more than I do. Some of the beats are really eccentric and I like that but it just doesn't completely gel for me. I think it's the combination of the more r&b sung elements that throw me off. Favorite track is "Izzy Izzy ahh" where she's doing this kinda laid back ODB thing. I like it when she gets more nonsensical and playful like that.

Fantastic beats from Timbaland, and some bomb features as well. It is unfortunate that I find Missy Elliot herself to be so dreadfully boring. I genuinely do not get her hype someone please explain it to me.

This is Missy's first album and it feels like a freshman attempt. It's a bit jumbled and weak, missing that weird snap that makes a Missy joint so recognizable. It's far more generic R&B than hip-hop but the unique spark that makes Missy the queen is there, just barely visible, buried in the sand. I'm glad she dug it out for further albums. Sadly, there's not enough here to save this first one.

"Supa Dupa Fly" is the sound of a big step forward for the genre: I was struck by the feeling that in 1997, Missy Elliott developed a brand of hip-hop and R&B still celebrated and explored by women artists in the current scene. Themes of feminism, sex-positivity, body confidence and solidarity between women help to make the album a fresh and engaging listen, although the songs themselves weren't always up to scratch. The first half jumps out immediately, a result of all four singles being placed together at the very start. This isn't to say it's the best material, but it's certainly the most immediate, the most demanding of attention. I enjoyed Elliott's vocals across all of these tracks, as well as the scratchy bass hook in "Hit 'Em Wit da Hee", the brass sample and chorus of "Sock it 2 Me" and the soulful groove of "The Rain". In the second half (appropriately, from "Pass da Blunt" onwards) it all becomes hazier, mellow, more subtle- on first couple of listens, this is where my interest began to wane. Sensual slow jam "Friendly Skies" and the cool detachment of "Why You Hurt Me" both strike good tones but are overlong. "I'm Talking" is another weak link- there are surely stronger, smarter hooks she could have used than "my style of rapping/I'm such a good rapper." But "Izzy Izzy Ahh" and "Gettaway" are good fun and help prop up a weaker second half. A strong array of guest stars (Lil' Kim with a James Joyce reference, Da Brat with a lightning-speed rap, Ann Peebles via sample) add different perspectives to the music and all give distinct voices. And finally, Timbaland's production is bold and innovative throughout, with a lot of layers that are fun to unpack. As well as the sampling and rhythms, some of my favourite arrangements pushed beatboxing (the final minute of "Pass da Joint", the vocal percussion in "They Don't Wanna Fuck Wit Me", and the accompaniment to "Gettaway"). This just scrapes 4* and would have been stronger still if a couple of tracks were shaved off towards the end: it starts brilliantly and Missy Elliott's vocals made a great combination with the guest stars and Timbaland's production.

The thing I love the most about Missy Elliott is that she's all in on her music career. Seemingly every other star who achieved success in her genre has at least tried to pivot into acting. But not Missy Elliott. She may eventually become the Joni Mitchell of rap and hip hop before all is said and done. Hell, she probably already is! I hear some Lauryn Hill here, along with some Prince and maybe even some Nenah Cherry. Overall, I found this to be a delight.

Supa Dupa Fly has an accurate title for this album as it does hum and flow smoothly, though not too in your face like the insect. The four singles are bops, with Sock It 2 Me and The Rain being my preferences out of them. The album cuts are mostly great too, with Best Friends being my favourite. Missy Elliott's vocals is smooth, playful and her rapping skills flows so well. Sets a nice chill vibe overall. The featured are great too (though didn't enjoy the intro and outro from Busta Rhymes). Timbaland's production and beats are fantastic here too, making them really enjoyable. Cut a couple of tracks off for b sides or for another album and it would be perfect.

Missy, you are indeed supa dupa fly, Hip hop albums don't always age well, but this one is still damn fine after all these years. If I was going to edit, I would cut the skits and guest spots (I mean, why did we need Busta Rhymes to introduce the album? No offense to Mr Rhymes). Missy's flow is on point, and pairs wonderfully with the consistently funky fresh production from Timbaland. Great choice to keep a consistent vision across the whole album, although tracks maintain their individual identity. Love the singles (obviously), but this one is a great listen throughout.

Beep beep.... Missy Elliott's debut album is a perfect introduction for those who want to dig into why she remains a influential figure in pop, R&B and hip-hop nearly twenty-five years on. Apart from the Busta Rhymes stuff and the spoken word outro, almost every song here is a banger from the hits to the deep cuts. An essential listen all around. Favorites: Hit 'Em With da Hee, Sock It 2 Me, The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly), Beep Me 911, Pass da Blunt, Best Friends, Don't Be Comin' (In My Face), Why You Hurt Me, I'm Talkin'.

Supa Dupa Fly is the debut studio album by American rapper Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, released July 15, 1997 on The Goldmind and Elektra Records. The album was recorded and produced solely by Timbaland in October 1996, and features the singles, "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)", "Sock It 2 Me", "Hit Em wit da Hee" and "Beep Me 911". Guest appearances on the album include Busta Rhymes, Ginuwine, 702, Magoo, Da Brat, Lil' Kim, and Aaliyah. The album was recorded in just two weeks. Supa Dupa Fly brings together elements of hip hop, dance, R&B, electronic music, and soul.[10][11] Music critic Garry Mulholland described Timbaland's production as "eschewing samples for a bump 'n' grind electronica, strongly influenced by the digital rhythms of dancehall reggae, but rounder, fuller, fatter".[12] AllMusic described it as consisting of “lean, digital grooves [...] packed with unpredictable arrangements and stuttering rhythms that often resemble slowed-down drum'n'bass breakbeats."[10] Elliott's raps were described as “full of hilariously surreal free associations that fit the off-kilter sensibility of the music to a tee.”[10] According to author Mickey Hess, the album's lyrical content "reveals Elliott's complex, creative, and challenging discussion about womanhood; her demand for respect, respect for her personal voice and her desire for fulfilling intimacy with lovers and friends".[13] The album's opening track, "Busta's Intro", features rapper Busta Rhymes as a town crier warning of a "historical event about to unfold".[13] "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" contains a sample of Ann Peebles' 1973 song "I Can't Stand the Rain".[14] "Pass da Blunt" is partly based on the song "Pass the Dutchie" by Musical Youth.

Kann ich als Whitie White Kartoffel vom Dorf eh nicht beantworten und freue mich, dass ich mein Sexleben mal schön selbst verhandle, alles kann nichts muss. Punkte jedenfalls für's selbst in die Hand nehmen, Missy. Ansonsten: ganz gut, reißt mich aber auf voller Länge nicht weit vom Hocker; wird nach hinten raus bisschen schwächer, und gerade am Booty mag man's doch tight.

Never really been into Missy Elliott but I totally get that being a female rapper in the 90s was massively pioneering and, as a result, my score is largely on that basis. I like the Timbaland production but just don't find the album as a whole massively exciting. No bangers either. 6/10

Classic Timbaland beatz and some surprising fresh rhymes and content from Missy that have really aged well. Part of her appeal is that she's not a pop star and doesn't need to go the Nicki Minaj/Cardi B route, so there's a lot more attention and emphasis on the music vs. the packaging.

The 90's were my early parenting years so missed a lot of interesting stuff including Rap and R & B, but being on oldish child of the seventies (18 in'77) I would have probably erred toward Britpop rather than American music at this time. But what does Missy bring to the party here, well I like "Hit em wit da hee" with Lil' Kim. The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) is a good reworking of I can't stand the rain but my favourite track is "Pas de Blunt" who'd of thought those young lads from Birmingham UK would be so influential! An interesting exploration with some super production values from Timbaland

I know Missy moreso from her early 2000's hits than anything, but this album has been on my radar for a while, after seeing it listed in Harvard's Hip-Hop Archive (sidenote, I hope they earn more to update it soon). It's not bad, but it does get a little samey. It could have been a lot better at a brisk 45 minutes, but still earns points for that crisp Timbaland sound. He'll always be relevant IMO C

Never listened to this before, other than hearing the singles when they were popular. Pretty good overall.

Il n’y a pas un album de Missy que j’aime dans son ensemble. Il y a des pièces super fortes sur différents albums, donc mon écoute tiens toujours compte de l’ensemble de l’œuvre dans son cas. Sur ce premier album, on tire beaucoup plus vers le R&B que j’apprivoise encore graduellement. C’est le côté Hip Hop qui me plait chez Missy, donc cet album me parle moins que Under Construction ou So Addictive. Il est aussi un peu long. Par contre son audace et son humour sont présent. Les beats des pièces Hit ´Em wit da Hee, Sock It 2 Me, The Rain et Pass da Blunt sont contagieux. Donc album à avoir écouté oui, mais ce n’est pas mon premier choix quand j’ai envie d’écouter du Missy. J’ajoute une étoile pour l’importance de cette artiste dans ce genre dominé par les hommes. Pièces préférées: Sock It 2 Me, The Rain et Pass da Blunt

Seriously, another missy Elliott album? The author of this book really did just fill gaps wherever hey. This just went on and on and on without end, yet another nameless rap album from the late 90s when it lost all character and started to sound like generic mass produced crap.

Had this at a 4/10 rating thirty minutes in halfway through, until I saw red upon realizing I was halfway through thirty minutes in! Snoozefest full of weak bars except for Lil Kim's past- left-field Finnegan's Wake reference, which I missed because I was catching Z's. Inexplicably in the top 100 of Rolling Stone's 2020-edition Top 500 Albums list, above and below some astronomically superior works. 3/10

Klasse, wie fresh alles tönt. Super Auswahl an Samples, gekonntes Casting an Co-Artists, warm groovende Bässe und anders als bei den Männern, sind die backing vocalists kein Schmuck sondern vollständiger Bestandteil. But: I really don’t care Sauber aneinander vorbeige-timba-lebte 2.4

V well produced, and great rapping. But I didn’t enjoy it. Probably hurt by Slim Shady LP the day before

Cool to see some R&B thrown in the mix as a bit of a change. 'Sock It 2 Me' was the stand out track for me on this one, there were a few good slow jams. I did find a few tracks a bit repetitive. I was reading up a bit more about this album - sounds like it was quite influential on the huge success of Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Rihanna etc in the 2000s which I thought was interesting. Would we be free to experience the auditory excellence of WAP nearly a quarter of a century later, if this album hadn't existed? Lots to think about. Would probably go for a 2.5 if I could

Hard to contextualize this one. Progressive female rapper from the 90's. Groovy jams. Trouble is I can't remember if this was breaking new ground or just sounding like what else was out there at the time.

Just not very interesting to me. Kinda boring. Lyrically doesn't seem like she has much to say that's interesting. Musically it feels more R&B and electronic influenced than most rap I've heard. I think I prefer more aggressive/transgressive hip-hop but I'm not much of a hip-hop fan so that's also part of it. Also, this album is too long. Clearly from the CD era.

This album is very disappointing. I do not understand what is so worthy of hearing. There really aren’t any memorable hooks. Missy’s vocals are way too laid back to be interesting. It almost sounds at times as if she’s disinterested. There’s just not a lot to work with here.

Another week, another overlong hip hop album with too many songs and skits. Is there any point in the making of these albums where someone pipes up that maybe 17 songs is too many and 10 or 12 is more than enough. Some good stuff, a lot of average, the Busta Rhymes intros/outros are embarrassingly bad as is 'Missy's Finale', where she thanks the people who worked on the album. Same time next week?

The production is great even if it gets a little familiar at times. This definitely has that signature Timbaland feel - weird mouth noises, cool funky shit, an ambivalent mix of hip hop and R&B, all in a super snappy mix. Surprising to me is how Missy is a little, idk, disappointing. I’m having a tough time finding intrigue, lyrically. It’s hard to critique because I’m sure this was pretty forward-thinking at the time, but this feels pretty tame and kinda falls flat now. Like, this is definitely misdemeanor-level shit, when I expected some felonies. She’s def got a cool style, she just doesn’t whomp me like I thought she would, especially given all the time she has. Fortunately, the features help out in this department. I’m definitely curious to hear more, but idk if I’d necessarily recommend this one. 2/5

I wasn't feeling it as much as the first Missy Elliott album I had not too long ago. Just chill background music, lacking the energy and catchiness of "Under Construction".

I like the beats on the album, less crazy about the vocals. For whatever reason I never developed an appreciation for that 90s R&B and rap sound.

I listened to the intro and then to half each of the first three songs. Definitely can't take more than that though. This is just incredibly atrocious. I will admit that the instrumentation seems quite smart and varied. But that aside, this album could hardly be further away from what I enjoy in music.

Kogo jak kogo, ale od tej pani drugiego picka sie nie spodziewalem a jednak, kolejny raz Missy Elliott, tym razem z swoim debiutanckim supa dupa fly, album jest tak podobny do tego co slyszalem na konstrukcyjnym krazku, ze nawet nie chce mi sie znowu pisac o tym jak dobra robote zrobil pan Timberland na produkcji, mieszajac funkowe sample z elektronicznym brzmieniem, do tego polowa trakow zawiera jakies ficzury, wiec dobra promka dla mlodej artystki, jesli nazwisko producenta nie jest wystarczajace, lirycznie rowniez nic sie nie zmienilo, gangsta rap w wydaniu zenskim, dziwnie sie slucha gdy ktos rapuje o jebaniu, ale z pozycji bycia jebanym, no chyba ze pani missy jest az tak gangsta, ze to ona jest ruchaczem, ale kto wie, wiec lirycznie sodoma i gomora po gangsterku, kombinacja niesluchalna, milym akcentem byl pan busta rhymes na openingowym i endingowym traku, nadaje to poczuje jakiejs kompozycji, ale poza produkcja jest to jedyny pozytywny aspekt tych 60 minut, na plejke dodam pass da blunt, zeby nie zapomniec o tym duecie, ktory zawojowal nisze damskiego rapu lat 90, bo supa dupa fly z pewnoscia jest zaliczana do topki plyt z 97, biorac pod uwage mainsteamowy rap

Bof J’ai aimé mieux celui-là que Under Construction, mais la prod sonne cheap par bout. En tous cas, elle est très contente de faire affaires avec Timbaland, tel que mentionné dans toutes les tounes où il apparait.

Personally its not an album that really gets to me. Nothing off putting about it and not bad though. "Pass da Blunt" grooves the way I like though.
