American rapper, Missy Elliott will become the first female rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The Virginia native, 47, who began her career in the all-female group Sista in the early 1990s, will be inducted in a ceremony this summer along with the likes of Cat Stevens, John Prine, Tom T. Hall, Jack Tempchin and Dallas Austin. Elliott is being inducted not only for her own songs, but songs she wrote for other artists like Aaliyah (“One in a Million”), Ciara (“1 2 Step”) and Mya (“My Love Is Like Whoa”).

‘I want to CONGRATULATE ALL THE AMAZING Songwriter who have been inducted into the 2019 ‘Song Writers Hall of Fame,’ an excited Elliott tweeted.
