Melissa Arnette Elliott was born on July 1, 1971, at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia, she is the only child of mother Patricia Elliott, a power-company dispatcher, father Ronnie, a former U. S. Marine. Elliott grew up in an active church choir family, singing was a normal part of her youth. At the age of four, she wanted to be a performer, and, as biographer Veronica A. Davis writes, she "would sing and perform for her family". In years, she feared no one would take her because she was always the class clown. While her father was an active Marine, the family lived in Jacksonville, North Carolina, in a manufactured home community.
Elliott blossomed during this part of her life. She enjoyed school for the friendships that she formed though she had little interest in schoolwork, she would get well above average marks on intelligence tests, she was advanced two years ahead of her former class. Her move in grades caused isolation, she purposely failed returning to her previous class; when her father returned from the Marines, they moved back to Virginia, where they lived in extreme poverty. Life in Virginia saw many hardships. Elliott talks about domestic abuse by her father, she refused to stay over at friends homes out of fear that on her return home she would find her mother dead. When Elliott was eight, she was molested by a cousin. In one violent incident, Ronnie Elliott dislocated his wife's shoulders and during another, Elliott herself was threatened with a gun. At the age of fourteen, Elliott's mother decided to end the situation and fled with her daughter on the pretext of taking a joyride on a local bus. In reality, the pair had found refuge at a family member's home where their possessions were stored in a loaded U-Haul truck.
Elliott tells her. She stated, "When we left, my mother realized how strong she was on her own, it made me strong, it took her leaving her home to be able to realize that."Elliott and her mother lived in the Hodges Ferry neighborhood of Portsmouth, Virginia. Elliott graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in Portsmouth, Virginia, in 1990. In 1991, Elliott formed an all female R&B group, called Fayze, with friends La'Shawn Shellman, Chonita Coleman, Radiah Scott, she recruited her neighborhood friend Timothy Mosley as the group's producer and began making demo tracks, among them included the 1991 promo "First Move". In 1991, Fayze caught the attention of Jodeci member and producer DeVante Swing by performing Jodeci songs a cappella for him backstage after one of his group's concerts. In short order, Fayze moved to New York City and signed to Elektra Records through DeVante's Swing Mob imprint and renaming the group Sista. Sista's debut song was titled "Brand New", released in 1993 Elliott took Mosley—whom DeVante re-christened Timbaland—and their friend Melvin "Magoo" Barcliff along with her.
All 20-plus members of the Swing Mob—among them future stars such as Ginuwine and Tweet—lived in a single two-story house in New York and were at work on material both for Jodeci and their own projects. While Elliott wrote and rapped on Raven-Symoné's 1993 debut single, "That's What Little Girls Are Made Of", she contributed and uncredited, to the Jodeci albums Diary of a Mad Band and The Show, the After Party, the Hotel. Timbaland and DeVante jointly produced a Sista album, entitled 4 All the Sistas Around da World. Elliott met R&B artist Mary J. Blige. Though videos were released for the original and remix versions of the single "Brand New", the album was shelved and never released. One of the group's tracks, "It's Alright" featuring Craig Mack did however make the cut on the soundtrack of the 1995 motion picture Dangerous Minds but by the end of 1995, Swing Mob had folded and many of its members dispersed.
