Missy Elliott’s nomination for a place in the Songwriters Hall of Fame was announced in November 2018, but now it’s been confirmed. She’s the first female rapper to earn the accolade, following the first rapper, Jay-Z’s entry in 2017.
Other 2019 inductees include Yusuf/Cat Stevens, American country singer John Prine, and a couple of other singer-songwriters.
