Missy Elliot Nominated For Songwriters Hall of Fame

 

We could see Missy Elliot one-two step into the 2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame. 

According to the Associated Press, Elliot is the first female rapper to be nominated and is in line to become the third to join the HOF, following Jay- Z and Jermanie Dupri. 

Songwriters are eligible for induction after writing hit songs for at least 20 years.

Over the years Elliot has lent her writing skills to some of the biggest songs on the radio. Elliott has penned hits such as 702's “Where My Girls At,” Monica’s “So Gone,” and even re-worked Patti LaBell's "Lady Maramlade," and turned it into a 2001 modern classic with Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim and Mya. 

Elliot and Timbaland were also instrumental in launching the career of R&B songstress, Aaliyah. 

Six songwriters, or songwriting groups, will be officially inducted at the Hall’s 50th annual Induction & Awards Gala in New York on June 13, 2019. Eligible members can vote for three non-performing songwriters and three performing songwriters until Dec. 17.

Congrats Missy!!!
