Missy Elliott becomes the first female rapper to be inducted into the songwriter's Hall of Fame




(Newser)

Missy Elliott is writing history when the first female rapper was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, whose class in 2019 includes legendary British singer Cat Stevens and country folk icon John Prine, the AP reports. The organization announced the new group of members on Saturday. Other importers include Tom T. Hall, whom Johnny Cash called his "favorite songwriter of all time"; Jack Tempchin, who wrote songs for the solo albums of Eagles and Glenn Frey; and Dallas Austin, the songwriter behind radio hits for TLC, Monica, Pink, Boyz II Men, Madonna and more. Elliott is just the third rapper to enter Songwriters Hall after Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupri were introduced in 201

7 and 2018. While writing her own raps, Elliott has given her writing skills to everyone from Beyonce to Whitney Houston to the late icon Aaliyah.

"I am so grateful to be introduced now," Elliot tweeted on CNN. The new class of songwriters will be officially launched on June 13 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Songwriters are eligible for the introduction after writing hit songs for at least 20 years. Stevens, who also refers to Yusuf (the name he gave when he converted to Islam), has been a respected writer since its publication in 1967. He had a number of top 40 hits, from "Peace Train" to "Morning Has Broken". And "The First Cut Is The Deepest," which he wrote five decades ago, has become a hit for several artists, including Rod Stewart and Sheryl Crow. "The inclusion of Prine is something special, since he's for this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was nominated, but did not make the cut. (In less pleasing musical news, R. Kelly's daughter calls him a "monster.")
