Missy Elliott f/ Timbaland – ‘9th Inning’ (Snippet) | New Music

Missy Elliott is preparing to once again take the game by storm with her new album Block Party, and she begins her comeback trek today by unveiling an extended preview of the album’s first single, “9th Inning.”

Fittingly, Ms. E’s return is soundtracked by close friend and kindred musical spirit Timbaland, who serves up a dramatic track led by some marvelous, triumphant horns and frenetic piano keys, setting the perfect stage for Missy’s one-of-a-kind rhymes and flow.

While she promised us TWO new joints last time we heard from her, we still haven’t heard any parts of an official, finished version of “Triple Threat.” We can only assume that it’s coming soon.

While we wait for that, get a taste of “9th Inning” below.
