"All n My Grill" is the second single from Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott's 1999 album, Da Real World. The song featured Big Boi of Outkast and vocal ad-libs from her former protégé, Nicole Wray. The song had more success than the first single, "She's a Bitch".

In European markets, another version of the song featuring French rapper MC Solaar was released adding French rap lyrics performed by MC Solaar. This bilingual English/French version became a charting hit in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany and Sweden. This version had appeared as a bonus track on the album Da Real World as an alternative to then main version featuring Big Boi and Nicole Wray.

The song was a hit in the UK as well with the promo single featuring MC Solaar being mixed by Boy George and Kinky Roland.

Music video[edit]

The video was directed by Hype Williams and featured Nicole Wray and Big Boi. The video starts with Elliott in a car singing. She gets out of the car and starts singing the rest of the song walking down a street. Nicole Wray is singing in a car for most of the video. There are people dancing around in yellow rain coats in the rain. At the end, Big Boi raps with plaid shorts on. Andre 3000 appears with Big Boi at the end. The video premiered on TV in August 1999.[1]
