"4 My People" is a song by American recording artist Missy Elliott. It was written by Elliott, Timbaland, Eve Jeffers, Nisan Stewart, Craig Brockman and Dante "D-Man" Nolan for her third studio album Miss E... So Addictive (2001). Production was helmed by Stewart and Nolan, with Elliott and Timbaland serving as co-producers and Eve having featured vocals.

The track was released as the album's fourth and final single and peaked at number two in the Netherlands and number five in the United Kingdom due to heavy airplay of the Basement Jaxx remix - Elliott's second highest charting single in the UK to date, after "Get Ur Freak On". The song also peaked at number eight in Denmark, and within the top 40 of the charts in Germany, Switzerland, France and Sweden. A music video for the single was released on March 9, 2002.[4]

The Basement Jaxx remix has been voted as one of 1001 Best Songs Ever by Q magazine.[]

There was a short music video that was released as the remaining half of the video for "Take Away". The short video features Elliott dancing with a big American crowd in honor of the victims of the 9/11 attacks.[5]
