Legendary artist Missy Elliott has been honored with a star on the Walk of Fame.
The ceremony for the Virginia legend went down yesterday and found her being honored by artists like Ciara and Lizzo, who helped unveil the star. Missy spoke on the honor and named pivotal artists who paved the way for her, saying: “To my sisters in hip-hop, I want to say I love each and every one of y’all — he ones that’s popping now, the one’s that’s about to be popping. But I want to give a big shoutout to the godmothers of this, and that is Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Sha-Rock, Angie Stone, Roxanne Shanté, Yo-Yo, MC Lyte, Salt-N-Pepa … Y’all are the backs that we stand on, y’all are the foundation. Y’all ran so we could walk. Y’all stood up for something so we could sit comfortably.”
Missy Elliott dedicates her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to "female MCs in hip-hop," including Queen Latifah, Monie Love, MC Lyte, Salt-N-Pepa and more.
