I played a song yesterday during the 5 o’clock Jumpoff from Missy Elliot and my phone was blowing up. Alot of folks thought it was something new, when in actuality it was an old cut from about 6 years ago. That to me means that the listeners want new music from Missy, unfortunately she’s been dealing with a few things that have put the breaks on that happening!

Producer Missy Elliott has revealed she is battling Graves disease, an incurable disorder that affects the thyroid. The disorder has caused Missy to drop out of the spotlight, after she suffered from hair loss, mood swings and went through radiation treatment.

Missy told People magazine that the disease caused her to lose her ability to do simple things, like driving or writing. “I was [driving and] trying to put my foot on the brake, but my leg was jumping. I couldn’t keep the breakdown and almost crashed. I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad–I couldn’t even use a pen.”

According to Elliott she is 30 pounds lighter due to her exercising habits and she has been off of her medication for almost 9 months now.

Missy is currently working on new music with her protege Timbaland. With me being a huge fan, I can’t wait until this happens and we can get back to the jams!
