Hits of Miss E...the Videos Volume 1 [VHS]
Missy the artist is cool, confident. Missy the producer/songwriter is in charge, innovative. This is Missy the video artist--off the wall and off the hook. The Hits of Miss E...The Videos, Volume 1 DVD and VHS feature four of her groundbreaking videos, all available for purchase for the first time. In addition, the DVD version includes behind-the-scenes footage and Surround Sound. This companion video to Missy's album Miss E... So Addictive leaves no doubt that Missy is as far ahead of the game in front of the camera as she is behind the mixing board and the microphone. "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)," "Hit 'Em wit' da Hee," "She's a Bitch," "Get Ur Freak On."

Four videos are up for your DVD viewing pleasure. The first video is Missy's latest single, "Get Ur Freak On", her most successful effort taken from her third album "Miss E...So Addictive", mixing Missy's familair friends of hip hop and r'n'b, groovy post-"Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" kung fu and a shedload of eastern influence. Vid is directed by Dave Meyers, responsible for Britney Spears' "Lucky". Her latest is followed by her first, Missy's debut single "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)", her first of many videos directed by Hype Williams. All crazy costumes and wild colours, the inflatable bin bag suit remaining the infinite standout. Third up is "She's A B****", Missy and Hype's wildest foray into the format, all futuristic smoothness and extremeness. The videos finish up with the wonderful "Hit 'Em Wit Da Hee", a trip into Tim Burton-esque fantasy with a dash of Michael Jackson a la "Smooth Criminal" in Missy's flashy dance attire. Vid is directed by Paul Hunter, co-director of D'Angelo's awfully nude "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" video and is made all the more essential for being an evilly groovy remix, adding strings from Bjork's "Joga" for an intoxicating effect.
Not exactly elaborate on details as to why said videos look the way they do, nor how Missy's beats were inspired, but the DVD remains essential for Missy's fans everywhere. Expect "Sock It 2 Me", "Beep Me 911", "All N My Grill" and "Hot Boyz" for Volume 2.
