After 30 years in the music industry, Missy Elliott will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2019, making her the first female rapper ever to be nominated and inducted.

Elliott is the first female rapper to be inducted. Other inductees include Tom T. Hall, who Johnny Cash called his "all-time favorite songwriter"; Jack Tempchin, who co-wrote songs for the Eagles and Glenn Frey's solo albums; and Dallas Austin, the songwriter behind radio hits for TLC, Monica, Pink, Boyz II Men, Madonna and more.

"I want to CONGRATULATE all the awesome songwriters who have been inducted into the 2019 'Song Writers Hall of Fame, '" Elliott tweeted of the honor, "also those who were nominated because their body of work is fantastic I AM SO HUMBLY GRATEFUL to now be inducted also I [love] you all". Jay-Z holds the distinction of going in first, back in 2017.

This year's round of inductees is the Songwriters Hall of Fame's first since Nile Rodgers became chairman of the organization. The 2019 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres and gender, highlighting our dedicated mission to honor music creators who have enriched our lives. While the induction has been made official as of this writing, an actual ceremony will be held on June 13 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City, which allows for her loved ones to share in the moment "physically".
