BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Rapper Missy Elliott became the first female rapper to ever be nominated for the 2019 Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

Elliott took to Instagram to express her appreciation for the nomination.

“I am so HUMBLY GRATEFUL to be nominated with so many AMAZING writers & I send a CONGRATULATIONS to all the other nominees also,” the superstar said.

Elliott, often praised for her wild, colorful style and playful lyricism, has been one of pop music’s most sought producers and songwriters, in addition to creating her own well-known hits, from “Get Ur Freak On” to “Work It” to “Lose Control.”

Other nominees include Mariah Carey, Vince Gill, Dallas Austin, Chrissie Hynde and Jimmy Cliff.

The winner will be announced

    Besides these three chief eye-witnesses we may also mention the Annales Genuenses by the Genoese consul Caffarus,’ and the Annales Pisani of Bernardus Marago, useful as giving the mercantile and Italian side of the Crusade; the Hierosolymita of Ekkehard, the German abbot of Aura, who first came to Jerusalem about 1101 (partly based on the Gesta, but also of independent value: see Hagenmeyer’s edition, Tubingen, 1877); and Raoul of Caen’s Gesta Tancredi, composed on the basis of information supplied by Tancred himself. The plants were grown from the remains of my forefathers? Believing implicitly in the rumours of a descent on Boulogne and of risings in France which also reached him, and knowing the destitution he had left behind him in his movement to Ulm, when he heard of the westward march of French columns from the Lech he told his army, apparently in all good faith, that the French were in full march for their own coun try. The data shows pockets where radish efficacy is substantially higher and others where it is nonexistent.
