Yesterday several media outlets announced that Missy Elliott became the first female rapper to be nominated for the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. Missy released her debut album Supa Dupa Fly in 1997, and has been writing great music ever since. She has written or produced music for artist like: Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, Ciara, SWV, Beyoncé, Destiny’s Child, Monica and more.
In the male dominated world of hip hop music Missy has made her mark. 47 year old Missy has received four grammy awards, and has sold over thirty million records in the United States. Missy responded on Twitter about her nomination yesterday. The Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony is on June 13, 2019. Only six nominees will be officially inducted that night. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Missy Elliott! ~~ Patty Steele
