Missy Elliott is feeling “Supa Dupa Fly” as she will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Lizzo and Ciara will pay tribute to the four-time Grammy winner when she becomes a member of the Walk of Fame on Monday, November 8, during a ceremony beginning at 11:30 a.m. PT at 6212 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Amoeba Music. Missy will have the 2,708th star.
“Missy Elliott has broken through the barriers of the male-dominated hip hop world, and music industry as a whole, as she has led the way for many women who have followed in her footsteps,” says Hollywood Walk of Fame Producer Ana Martinez in a statement. “She continues to break barriers year after year and we’re thrilled to be able to honor her on the Walk of Fame.”

In 2019, the 50-year-old trailblazer became the first female hip hop artist, and third-ever rapper, to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, following Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupri. As a writer, producer, and artist, Elliott’s collaborated with numerous stars, including Beyoncé, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, Justin Timberlake, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and Aaliyah.
Last year, Elliott expanded into television, co-producing the Lifetime original movie The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel, with Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige.
