Yesterday (February 1) was an exceptionally busy pop culture news day, headlined by two major reveals: Beyoncé announced her Renaissance tour and Tom Brady retired again. Those two stories kind of overshadowed a big music moment: The 2023 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame nominees were announced. Among the nominees is Missy Elliott, and she’s thrilled about earning the nod in her first year of eligibility.

The rapper wrote in a celebratory Instagram post, “I have cried my eyes out [crying emoji] I am so HUMBLY GRATEFUL for this nomination with also 14 other Amazing artist so grateful To All of you & my fans who been through this journey with me I Thank You also 4 helping me get here [purple heart emoji] YOU ROCK.” She added in a similar tweet, “I’ve always dreamed big but to be nominated for this is bigger than I dreamed.”

A nomination well deserved for someone who has been influential not only in hip hop, but also how she changed the game via expressing her artistic creativity in music video form.
