When it comes to supporting fellow female MCs, Missy Elliott is clearly ’bout it, ’bout it. On Friday night (October 26), rising star Chika posted a powerful freestyle that yielded the adoration of Missy herself.
“Wheeeeeeeeew,” Missy commented on Chika’s video. She had a series of flame emojis to emphasize her point.

In Chika’s original post, the 21-year-old tagged Cardi B in the caption, a reference to one of her lines in the verse.
“someone hit @iamcardib, tell her i wanna party,” Chika wrote. “money verse.”
Chika has been attracting attention from many pillars of the Hip Hop community. Erykah Badu, who backed her on the 1s and 2s during the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher earlier this month, has shared the Alabama native’s freestyle videos, while Ice-T, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Funkmaster Flex all raved about her on social media.
Missy is just the latest to recognize Chika’s undeniable talent.
“It feels good to know someone who opened up doors for people like me enjoys what I do,” Chika told HipHopDX. “She’s been very supportive.”
