Missy Elliott has been somewhat elusive over the past few years. Though she's popped up to do guest features on tracks such as Little Mix's 'How Ya Doin?' as well as dropping two Timbaland produced singled in 2012, '9th Inning' and 'Triple Threat', she hasn't really done much of her own; her seventh album, Block Party is still evading us.

In conversation with Yahoo's The Yo! Show, Missy explained why it's been nine years since her last album came out. "When I create something, it's gotta be special and it can't just be to throw something out there because I feel like I'm Missy. I gotta feel like what I'm giving the fans is 100 percent and that it's game-changing. I don't just throw out microwave records." She gave no hints as to when Block Party was coming she merely said, "It's coming. I just ain't telling nobody when."
