Missy Elliott First Female Rapper Inducted Into Songwriters Hall of Fame

Missy Elliott is the third rapper inducted into the Hall of Fame, following Jermaine Dupri's induction previous year and Jay Z's induction in 2017.

Missy Elliott is making history as the first female rapper inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, whose 2019 class also includes legendary British singer Cat Stevens and country-folk icon John Prine.

"The 2019 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres and gender, highlighting our dedicated mission to honor music creators who have enriched our lives", the Chic guitarist continued.

For almost 50 years, the Songwriters Hall of Fame has recognized the achievements of the people who put words and music together. Songwriters are eligible for induction after writing hit songs for at least 20 years. "These are writers who in their time literally transformed music and helped make what's happening today possible". "Saturday" revealed the six artists of the 2019 class. All her albums have been certified platinum or more and she has sold over 30 million records. Missy Elliott is also a five-time Grammy Award victor. "That's true now more than ever but it has always been about the song so I'm very proud that in my first year as Chairman of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame that we are recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time".

The Hall of Fame's 50th Annual Induction & Awards Gala will take place on January 13 in New York City.
