As Missy entered her teens, Ronnie became even more violent towards Patricia and Missy begged her mom to escape from him and take her, too. This finally happened when Missy was 14, though life continued to be a struggle financially. While she was still at school she formed a girl group, Sista, and after auditioning for the producer DeVante Swing, they were signed to his label, Swing Mob Records — and Missy, who by now had finished her education, moved to New York. But her big break turned out to be a false start, as the label folded before Sista's debut album — most of which Missy had written herself — was ever released.
