Missy Elliot is still beaming about her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. After her star-studded Walk of Fame ceremony on Monday, where Lizzo and Ciara helped to pay tribute to Elliot’s illustrious career, Missy took to Instagram to post a touching message.
“We here baby!” she began, sharing photos and a video of the event. “And I know a lot of people say (Missy it’s bout Time) but this was the right time (God’s Timing) & I am Grateful! This is a moment that I shall never forget & all the people who have been on this journey with me through my ups and downs & sickness I want you all to know how much you mean to me.”
Elliot then took time to acknowledge her peers in hip hop, as well as those who came before her. “I am still filled by seeing I have a star amongst so many other great Stars my heart is Smiling and I thank all my SuperFriends and all the female EMCEES before me thank you for being the foundation for me Queens,” she wrote. “I am HUMBLED!”
