#MissyElliott receives a STAR on the Hollywood #WalkOfFame! #Lizzo #Ciara present! #JanetJackson & #BustaRhymes honor her! [Vids]

It has been a LONG TIME coming, but a well-received HONOR!

Four-time Grammy winning singer-songwriter-producer and all-around POP CULTURE icon, Missy Elliott was honored Monday with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ciara, Mona Scott-Young and Lizzo were among those to introduce Elliott at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce ceremony — fittingly, Elliott’s star was placed outside the new location of the giant Amoeba Music record store on Hollywood Boulevard.

Missy gave an EMOTIONAL speech as she praised other female rappers and the GOD MOTHERS of HIP HOP that came before her:

“I especially want to thank my sisters in hip-hop” she said, “I love each and every one of y’all — the ones that’s poppin’ and the ones that’s about to be poppin,’” she said, before singling out “the godmothers”: Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Sha-Rock, Angie Stone, Roxannne Shanté, Yo-Yo, MC Lyte, and Salt-N-Pepa.

“I know I’m probably missing some,” she continued. “But y’all are the backs that we stand on. Y’all are the foundation. Y’all ran so we could walk; y’all stood up for something so we could sit comfortably. So I thank y’all for this moment.”

LONGTIME FRIEND and collaborator, Janet Jackson sent a special video message as did fellow HIP HOP PROVACATEUR Busta Rhymes!
