It's official. Missy Elliott will be inducted into the Hall of Fame and Composers, the first female hip-hop artist.
The global icon, whose career spans two decades, has written such hits as "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)", "Work It" and "Get Ur Freak On", and writes for megastars like Whitney Houston, Beyoncé and Janet Jackson. Melissa Arnette (her real name) is the third rapper acceded to the Hall of Fame Writers and Authors after Jermaine Dupri (2018) and JAY-Z (2017).
