Virginia Musicians Carry Missy Elliott & Timbaland’s Legacy

Virginia, USA – November 6, 2023 ( –

Virginia has long been a breeding ground for some of the most influential figures in the music industry, and it’s no secret that the state has given birth to some of the greatest talents in hip-hop and R&B. Among these luminaries are Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott, recently crowned the first female rapper inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and 4x Grammy award winning producer Timbaland, both of whom hail from Portsmouth, Virginia, and have made an indelible mark on the world of music. Now, two talented musicians from Virginia, Virginia Supernova Slim and Stupindus, are stepping into the spotlight, inspired by their illustrious predecessors.

Virginia Supernova Slim, born in the same city as Missy Elliott and Timbaland, feels a deep connection to her fellow Portsmouth natives. She believes that growing up in the same hometown as these iconic artists has instilled a sense of kinship and shared musical spirit. “Being from the same city as Missy and Timbaland, I’ve always felt a special connection to them,” says Virginia Supernova Slim. “Their success has been a constant source of inspiration for me, and I’m proud to call Portsmouth my home.”

Stupindus, the first cousin of Virginia Supernova Slim, was raised in Lynchburg, Virginia, home to Liberty University Flames. Growing up in a deeply religious and musical environment, Stupindus found his calling as a minister of music, proficient in a variety of instruments from the piano and drums to the trumpet. His ability to craft beats and his profound love for music drew inspiration from the groundbreaking work of Missy Elliott and Timbaland.

Virginia Supernova Slim and Stupindus, with their unique musical talents and family bond, are proud torchbearers of the legacy left by Missy Elliott and Timbaland. Their journey in music is a testament to the profound impact their hometown heroes have had on their lives. “We picked up their mantle,” states Stupindus, “and we consider ourselves ‘Products of their inspiration.’ We are committed to honoring their influence and leaving our mark on the world.”

As they embark on their musical journey, Virginia Supernova Slim and Stupindus pay homage to their potential relative Missy Elliott and Timbaland for paving the way for artists like themselves.
