The ladies who ran hip-hop at the turn of the millennium are back with Missy to show they're better too.

When the original "I'm Better" dropped in January, it galvanized the hip-hop world expecting a full return-to-form for the Misdemeanor, but today she brings out Lil Kim, Trina and Eve on the remix.

Minimalist productions like Lamb's "I'm Better" beat are made for diverse remixes like this. It allows Kim to be alluring, Trina to be confrontational, and Eve to be everything – all without sounding out of place. While they all shine, it has to be said how much Eve bodies this track, especially considering she hasn't put an album out since 2013 (and even that was her first since 2002).

While we still don't have a release date for her new album, between the "I'm Better (Remix)" and Aminé's "REDMERCEDES" remix, we're certain Missy is going to have us partying like it's 2002 once again!
