Her wild, eccentric style and creative lyricism make her one of music’s best storytellers and recently earned her a nomination for the prestigious 2019 Songwriters Hall of Fame class. She could be the first female rapper to enter the organization and the third rapper overall after Jay-Z and Jermaine Durpi.Says Elliott: “I feel so humbled and truly blessed to be even nominated.”Mesfin Fekadu, The Associated Press FILE – In this June 28, 2005 file photo shows Missy Elliott performing at the 5th annual BET Awards in Los Angeles.
