Got Beef?: Rapper Ms. Jade Accuses Missy Elliot Of 'Swagger Jacking'

There are just a few days left in good old 2010 but that doesn't mean there's no room for a little beef in cafe Musically Yummy. Our waitress for today is rapper Ms. Jade who will be serving up some beef with Missy Elliot.

The Philly-born rapper visited the Star and Bucwild show for an interview in which Missy Elliot's name was brought up along with speculation that she may have stolen Ms. Jade's style.

If you are a little fuzzy on who Ms. Jade is, she released her album Girl Interrupted in 2002 but you probably know her best from her single "Ching, Ching" that featured Nelly Furtado. Ms. Jade also appeared on the remix for Beyonce's "Diva."

When asked if Missy jacked Ms. Jade's round-the-way-girl look, Jade concurred stating that Missy not only took it, but "ran all the way down the street with it."

In her words,

"When I first came out, my persona was kind of like, the round-the-way girl with the Adidas sweatsuit and bamboo earrings," Jade said. "[Missy Elliott] took that and ran all the way down the street with it. And you know, as a new artist, it looks like I'm copying from her but actually, it's the other way around. She took the same exact picture [of me posing in a baseball cap sideways] -- Missy Elliott swagger jacked me."


Seems true to me; however, I do recall Missy's attire always being baggy and round-the-way-girl-ish dating back to the Aaliyah days but OK...
