This has been a very good year for Missy Elliot. Not only is she about to be the female Hip Hop artist inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, she’s also getting an honorary Doctorate of Music degree from Berklee College. Her reaction on social media was, “I am soooooo HUMBLED!”
According to Berklee’s website, the recipients – who also include Justin Timberlake and conductor Alex Lacamoire – are being recognized “for their achievements and influences in music, and for their enduring global impact.”
The commencement ceremony will take place May 11th at the Agganis Arena at Boston University.
