"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 premiered in February 1998 and starts at a pink dollhouse where Elliott is wearing a yellow sparking dress dancing, along the girls of 702 in the background while singing their verses. In another scene, other dolls are in a big cage dancing with Elliott.

Cover versions and interpolations[edit]

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