On this week’s episode, Jinx and Shea cover Missy Elliott’s 1997 avant-garde musical masterpiece, Supa Dupa Fly. They discuss how Missy and Timbaland collaborated to create hits like “The Rain,” “Beep Me 911,” and “Sock It 2 Me,” as well as the visuals that brought the songs to life. Find out who had the best guest verse: Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Magoo, or Da Brat. Later, learn why Jinx is actually this week’s Flagrant Foul and how airplanes, Virginia, and friendship played a role in making this one of the greatest albums in music history.
