It’s about time that Missy gets the flowers she deserves! The icon got her legendary status when she received her star on the walk of fame on Monday, November 8. Friends and family have gathered to celebrate the legend. She was honored by Ciara, Lizzo, and her manager Mona Scott-Young during the live-streamed induction ceremony. Lizzo took the stage while reciting her top track “Work It” lyrics. Ciara also paid tribute to her “1,2 Step” collaborator. Missy took the podium to reflect on her iconic career.
“Through the grace of God and faith, I’ve kept going. If I hadn’t, I wouldn’t be standing here,” she told the crowd. “I’d come here 20 some years ago and used to walk past all of these stars and just imagine. It’s just a blessing to dream big and it truly happened.”
She dedicated the honor to her “sisters in hip-hop” that includes Queen Latifah, Angie Stone, Monie Love, Yo Yo, MC Lyte, Salt – N- Pepa and more.
