Missy Elliott has been confirmed as the first female in hip-hop to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The 47-year old began her career in the all-female group ‘Sista’ in the early 1990s and continued to succeed in her solo career.

The rapper took to Twitter to express her gratitude, as she tweeted: “I want to CONGRATULATE ALL THE AMAZING Songwriter who have been inducted into the 2019 ‘Song Writers Hall of Fame.”


Missy has had a hugely successful career since her debut solo album, ‘Supa Dupa Fly‘ which was released in 1997, and it went on to be certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

In 2017 Billboard listed her as the best-selling female rapper in Nielson Music history, as she’s sold over 30 million records in the US.

The new songwriters will officially be inducted on June 13th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
