ENSPIRE Contributor: LaShonda Thompson
On November 8th, Missy Elliott was presented with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – an honor well deserved for such an amazing artist. Missy Elliott rose to fame in the ’90s, creating a form of music never heard before in the music industry. We first saw Missy being part of a group known as Sistah; she later became part of a collaborative group known as Swing Mob, which included well-known producers Timbaland and Magoo.
Then came Missy’s album “Supa Dupa Fly,” which had hits to run heavily on rotation with the radio stations. ‘The Rain,’ ‘Sock It 2 Me,’ ‘Hit Em with da Hee,’ and the entire album had everyone on their feet moving. From that moment on, we knew we had a superstar on our hands.
Congratulations to you, Missy Elliott! Your contribution to music and the arts has been something we will all forever remember. The star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame puts the exclamation point on the greatness and legacy Missy will leave behind for generations to come.
