NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 05: Missy Elliot performs at the Hennessy "Wild Rabbit" campaign launch event at the Highline Studios on
Jerritt Clark

Update: Missy just dropped the full version of "9th inning" for your listening enjoyment. Check it.

Great news, guys - Missy Elliott is back! Yesterday, the Virginia rapper released a 90-second snippet for her new single, "9th Inning." The track, her first solo work in over four years, was produced by her longtime creative partner Timbaland. And, thankfully, it's a banger, with Missy attacking a driving, piano-laced beat with the same ferocious wit and style that made her famous. Missy has a new album, Block Party, out soon; hopefully, "9th Inning" will be on it.

Listen to the snippet at Soundcloud.  And if that's not enough, here's Missy performing it live.
