Missy Elliott was honored on Monday (November 8) with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
HipHollywood had a front row seat as the hit-making producer and MC received the 2,708th Star in the Category of Recording.
During her speech accepting the honor, she shouted out her “sisters in hip-hop” and specifically “the godmothers”: Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Sha-Rock, Angie Stone, Roxannne Shanté, Yo-Yo, MC Lyte, and Salt-N-Pepa. “Y’all are the backs that we stand on,” she said. “Y’all are the foundation.”
She was also emotional as she thanked several people who helped make her career in the music industry a success, including her long-time collaborator Grammy winning producer Timbaland.
Some of her good friends and peers Ciara, Lizzo and Mona Scott-Young paid tribute to her during the ceremony.
