MTV reports that Missy will be honored as this year’s MTV Video Vanguard Award Recipient. The honor makes Missy the first female hip hop artist to receive the award.

For us 90s babies, Missy Elliot is something like a pioneer. Her daring additions to music, pushing the limits of the “norm”, has helped to create a matured and polished sound to Hip Hop music. She was one of the firsts to simply open herself up in music and now, her courage, creativity, and hard work push her further into the history books.

“I am Humbly Grateful to be receiving the MichaelJacksonVideoVanguard Award,” she wrote on Instagram. “I Thank my FANS ‘Supafriends’ who fought diligently to see this day come @KidFury @crissles who rooted for years! I am crying right now so thankful.”

Congratulations to Missy! Thank you for all of your hard work for the culture. Don’t miss the MTV Video Awards where she will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award! The VMAs are August 26th at 8PM EST live from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
