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

Congrats to our girl Missy Elliott. The hip-hop queen who taught us how to put our thing down, flip it and reverse it has broken yet another barrier by becoming the first-ever female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. The announcement of the feat was made this week, with Missy joining the company of Cat StevensDallas Austin and a few others. While Missy has had quite the solo career, spawning hits like "Get Ur Freak On" and "Sock It 2 Me," we mustn't forget about her undeniable pen game for others, with her writing hits like "Trippin'" and "What About Us" for Total, the majority of Aaliyah's sophomore album One In A Million and a host of other hits in the '90s and 2000s. The induction ceremony for the Hall will go down on June 13th in New York City at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. #MissyBePuttinItDown
