Missy Elliott Becomes First Female Rapper Inducted Into Songwriters Hall Of Fame

It’s worth it and she worked it, she put that thing down flipped it and reversed it to make history! 


Missy Elliott has made history as of January 12th as she became the first female rap artist inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. 

She is only the third name in rap to be given this amazing title. Back in June, Jermaine Dupri was inducted into the Hall while Jay-Z was the first rapper in the 50-year history to earn the honor in 2017.
