Missy Elliott says "door is now open" after Rock Hall induction

After the announcement of the latest Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Missy Elliott is opening up about how important it is that she made it into the Hall. Elliott is among a number of this year’s recipients, including ’80s icon Kate Bush and ’90s rap-rock act Rage Against the Machine.

In a statement released after the inductee announcement, Elliott was enthused about her acceptance into the Hall, saying, “I want to say this is HUGE not for just me but all my Sisters in HIPHOP.”

The rapper continued: “This door is now OPEN to showcase the hard work & what many of us contribute to MUSIC. I have cried all morning because I am GRATEFUL thank you”. Elliott is also one of the first female hip-hop musicians to be welcomed into The Hall and one of only 61 women to have been inducted of the 719 inductees.

Elliott also took time to congratulate her fellow nominees, who have “committed DECADES of hard work and IMPACT on music. I thank you for the TIMELESS music you have shared with the World”. Elliott also got support from her fellow musicians, with Ciara posting her congratulations and fellow inductee Janet Jackson saying how proud she was of her.
