Missy Elliot is truly a PIONEER and INNOVATOR of HIP HOP and beyond! It was only fitting that she was HONORED at Essence’s #BlackWomenInMusic event, right? Missy’s LONG-TIME friend and collaborator flew to NYC to SURPRISE her pal and present her with the coveted award–it brought Missy to TEARS! Take a LOOK!

“That was a surprise,” a visibly emotional Elliott said. “I’ve known Janet over a decade and this is not just someone I do music with. I can call Janet any time of night and she will listen. The times that I may have felt like giving up, she’s always gave me an encouraging word.”
