Watch: Missy Elliott Inducted Into Songwriters Hall of Fame

Published: Friday 14th Jun 2019 by Rashad

While her discography alone boasts over 20 years of memorable Hip Hop hits and party-starters, Grammy-winning rapper/singer-songwriter/producer Missy Elliott has also lent her pen to countless hits for other artists.  Her storied multi-decade run on Billboard charts is one of many reasons she made history earlier this year with the announcement she would become the first female Hip Hop artist to be inducted into the prestigious Songwriter’s Hall of Fame (as we reported here).

Fast forward to the event (June 13), a tearful Elliott was on hand to accept the honor during the 50th Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony which saw her receive kudos from the likes of Queen Latifah, First Lady Michelle Obama, and more.

Look inside to hear the acceptance speech:

Congrats are most due to Missy.

Joining her in the 2019 class included producer Dallas Austin, Yusuf (a.k.a. Cat Stevens), John Prine, Tom T. Hall, and more.

    SO WELL DESERVED! Missy’s creativity, innovation & unique artistry are unmatched. She is the epitome of originality & presented aesthetics to 1990’s hip-Hop that was unmatched. I adore Missy’s image, her sound and dramatic stage/screen themes. ALL HAIL ONE OF OUR LIVING LEGENDS ?
