Beep Me 911 is a song recorded by American rapper Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, featuring vocals by R&B trio 702 and rapper Magoo. It was written and composed by Elliott, Melvin Barcliff, and Tim "Timbaland" Mosley for her debut album Supa Dupa Fly (1997) and released as the album's third single in 1998.

The lyrics describe Elliott insisting that, if her lover intends to leave her, he should tell her so before going, by any means necessary.

Music video[edit]

The video starts at a pink dollhouse where Elliott is wearing a yellow sparking dress and dancing with other dolls in a big cage. The girls of 702 are pole dancing and singing their verses.

Cover versions and interpolations[edit]

In 2012, Danny! sampled the drum programming from "Beep Me 911", as well as several ad-libs from Elliott, in his song "Go That-A-Way" as homage to the singer.
