POP CULTURE ICON, Missy Elliott is making HISTORY again! Missy has just been NOMINATED for the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame making her the first FEMALE RAPPER to ever have that HONOR!
If she wins, Elliott will be one of just 3 RAPPERS to snag that honor–past inductees include JAY-Z (2017) and Jermaine Dupri (2018).
We all know that Missy has PENNED many a hit for herself, but she has also written MONSTER HITS for Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Fantasia, Monica,Aaliyah SWV, and N’Sync to name a FEW!
Songwriters are eligible for induction after writing hit songs for at least 20 years. Six songwriters, or songwriting groups, will be officially inducted at the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s 50th annual Induction & Awards Gala in New York on June 13, 2019.
Let’s CROSS OUR FINGERS for Missy! She is SO DESERVING of this HONOR!!
