Missy Continues To Get Her Flowers

Missy Elliot was recently honored by the National Museum of African American Music, joining the likes of legends like Lionel Richie and Smokey Robinson

Missy Elliott has a long list of accolades under her belt, including awards from the BET Awards, MTV Awards, the Grammys, and having been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now, she can include yet another well-deserved win on her list, this time being honored National Museum of African American Music.

Elliott, along with her label Atlantic Records and a number of artists, are set to be recognized by the organization at the National Museum of African American Music's Celebration of Legends event on June 2nd in Nashville, TN.

Past artists recognized by the museum for their contributions to the music industry include Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, Chaka Khan and Quincy Jones.

Elliott's most recent earned-accolade was being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which served as the latest win for the "Work It" artist until the announcement of her honoring by the museum. Her list of awards includes (but certainly is not limited to) 15 from ASCAP, 6 from BET, 3 from Billboard, 5 from The Grammys, 12 from the MTV Video Music Awards, and one from the NAACP.

Given how much recognition and respect Missy Misdemeanor has garnered over decades for her impact on music, we can only expect that the accolades are due to continue stacking up for the hit rapper/singer.
