Why we’re hyped: It's been over a decade since we were last graced with an album from the legendary MC, and it looks like it will finally happen in 2016. After a huge surprise appearance at Katy Perry's Super Bowl halftime showMissy's comeback is right on track with the super-fly "WTF (Where They From)," which shows that the rapper hasn't lost her ability for clever raps and otherworldly music videos. Missy might be hitting a new peak of creativity and we're so excited to see where she can take it with a full-length. –Jeff Benjamin
