The iPod Shuffle – “Best Friend”

By J. Tinsley / 11.23.10

Missy Elliott has never been my favorite artist. Then again, I’ve never had a disdain for her either. I did, however, harbor a sense of remorse for her following Aaliyah’s passing because it was clearly evident to see how much that tragedy affected her. Losing a close friend never gets any easier, regardless of time.

Track 13 from J. Cole’s Friday Night Lights reminded me of this often overlooked sisterhood tune from her 1997 debut Supa Dupa Fly. As the years move forward, Aaliyah’s voice will continue to grow more and more amazingly haunting on this track. Who knows what goes through Missy’s mind when listening to this.

That’s if she even still does.
