There’s no doubting that Missy Elliott is an icon at it’s finest, and with countless hits under her belt, the legendary rapper was recently acknowledged for her work.

During the 2015 Billboard’s Women in Music awards, the hip-hop icon received the “Innovator Award” from one of her closest friends, Ciara.

The “1, 2 Step” singer spoke highly about her good friend as CiCi mentioned, “Countless women in music today, including myself and many of the biggest names in music, are living in a world my friend and hero, Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Elliott, helped to build, to create and to innovate. And so I could not be more thrilled to stand here and celebrate Missy as the innovator that she still is. The record shows that this creative force is one of the most influential rap artists and entertainers of all time. There is truly no one like her. It’s just the latest chapter in the true story of an amazing, talented and gifted music maker and a true innovator.”

Ciara then continued as she highlighted Missy’s accomplishments which include 10 top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 and 31 singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

Following her tribute, the “Work It” emcee took to her Twitter account to share the exciting news with her fans as she thanked every single one of them.
