This Viral Video Of A Woman Rapping Missy Elliott's "Work It" Is Too Amazing For Words
Missy Elliott is a music icon. She’s wowed everyone with her sheer talent, creativity, and unabashed lyrics. Plus, her 2002 hit “Work It” has more than made its mark on pop culture history. “Work It” is such a huge hit that its infectious beat has moved the hips of those young and old. Some people are even going as far as to perform the entire song. Take this viral video of a woman rapping Missy Elliott’s “Work It” for example. It’s so entertaining that you won’t be able to contain yourself.
In the video, an older lady who calls herself "Missy’s Funky White Sister" takes the stage at a karaoke event and raps her heart out. She’s clearly a Missy Elliott fan and she’s absolutely not afraid to let her love for the music icon show. Her passion for the song is so contagious that people in the background are also moving to the beat.
The woman, whose real name remains a mystery at this point, even goes as far as to do the sound effects the song is so famous for. And she kills it!
Oh, and did I mention she’s holding a bull horn? Like, a literal one. The whole scenario is incredibly funny. Even Missy Elliott herself thought so.
