Throughout the world today, Missy Elliot received accolades for earning her star on the Hollywood walk of Fame.
According to media buzz, after over two decades in the music industry, the Hip-Hop icon Missy Elliot will receive a star with her name on it.
“Elliott’s star will sit outside the new location of Amoeba Music on Hollywood Boulevard, alongside the names of other musical artists,” msn.com notes.
And Hip-Hop fans couldn’t be prouder of the consummate artist.
Hollywood Walk of Fame
Like Missy Elliot, inductees to the Hollywood Walk of Fame fall into five categories. The categories include; motion pictures, television, recording or music, radio, and theatre/live performance. Also, according to IMDB.com:
“One of the most honorary moments in an entertainer’s career is being put on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and to go down in history as one of the greatest….”
Without a doubt, receiving a star is a serious achievement.
Elliot’s Shining Moments
Certainly, Missy Misdemeanor Elliot has earned the privilege. Missy is not only a female emcee, but to her credit, she is also a producer, writer, singer, and style maven. Moreover, she has the receipts as proof of all that she is due.
The star is far from Elliot’s first achievement. As of note, in 2019, Missy was the first female hip-hop artist and third rapper overall to receive induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
And if nothing, her body of work, whether behind the mic, pen, or in the production studio, proves she’s way more than ‘Supa Dupa Fly.’
Unveiling of Elliot’s Walk of Fame Star
The unveiling of Elliot’s star was today. And reportedly, artists Ciara and Lizzo were in attendance. However, unfortunately, the event was not open to the public due to COVID restrictions.
So congratulations to The one and only Missy Misdemeanor Elliot, and may she continue to ‘Level Up!’
