Missy Elliott Honored To Be Part Of Hip-Hop’s 50th Anniversary Celebration At Grammys

Missy Elliott joined LL Cool J, Queen Latifah, Ice-T, Busta Rhymes, and many more to represent Hip-Hop in a once in a lifetime performance at the 2023 Grammys.  Elliott took great pride in participating in Hip-Hop’s 50th-anniversary tribute at the 2023 Grammy Awards.

The acclaimed artist reflected on the star-studded performance in an interview with Billboard.   “It was such nostalgia because I remember sitting in my living room and watching Public Enemy and Eric B. and Rakim and De La Soul and [Queen] Latifah and Salt-N-Pepa,” she said.

“And once again, just like that [Billboard] list, I am a part of this 50-year Hip-Hop tribute. And I tell you — this is no lie — no matter how many awards or accolades I have collected; I still pinch myself when I’m in those spaces because those people are so legendary to me.”  The Grammys performance was curated by Questlove, which highlighted multiple eras of Hip-Hop.
