Missy Elliott to Receive Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at 2019 VMAs

Michael Jackson Vanguard Award

Missy Elliott is set to receive MTV's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2019 MTV VMAs later this month! The Video Vanguard Award - whose previous winners include Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Beyoncé, among others - is only the latest in a recent string of accolades for Elliott.

Missy will become the first female rapper to ever receive the award that pays respect to artists who have had a major influence on music videos.

"I am Humbly Grateful to be receiving the MichaelJacksonVideoVanguard Award".

TSR writes that 'While many other artists have gotten the award before her, most hip hop fans have long argued that Missy should have received the award several years ago.

Her upcoming performance on the VMA stage will mark her first since 2003.

The only female rapper to have six studio albums certified platinum -including her debut 1997 album Supa Dupa Fly and her 2002 LP Under Construction - Elliott has topped the charts as a lead artist on a number of hit songs, including "Get Ur Freak On", "Work It", "Lose Control", "WTF (Where They From)", "Gossip Folks", "The Rain", "4 My People", and "One Minute Man". She is a five-time Grammy victor and the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
