CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

A taut collection of slinky, self-assured hip-hop that fuses throwback sensibilities with the rapper’s trademark futurism.

HipHopDX

In a time where her late age peers getting major release priorities get more experimental, introspective or attempt to follow trends, Iconology works as a reminder of Missy’s DNA not only in the recent explosion of female rappers but pop music in general.

Entertainment Weekly

She’s still blazing a trail for pop weirdness; that it’s veering off in unexpected directions is par for the course.

Rolling Stone

Iconology is only an EP with four new songs, but it still feels like the real Misdemeanor—not a revival of her past, but a taste of her right now.

NME
All in all, ‘ICONOLOGY’ is Missy putting a gun in the face of her haters and daring them to say something. She wants them to doubt her just so she can pop off with some zany game-changing vision that’ll set the world on fire. But she’s not ready to unload a full clip just yet. Rest assured, though – it’s coming.

Sum1 is the Wal-Mart SZA.

This is a Missy Elliot exclusive

dont get the hate on this one. its a humble collection of tracks that mix contemporary trap with her classic spirit that drove those ambitious and fun records of yore, and as that it succeeds.

Her first album after more than 10 years of hiatus, and this is what she thinks y'all deserve? I swear, even Iggy Azalea's new album sounds better than this entire thing. The disrespect...

"Get your review and your ratings right"

Sum1 is the only redeeming quality of this stupid EP, even if it's bare to subpar, it's better than Missy Elliott.

Favs: fucking none, lmao
