Work it! Congrats are in order for Missy Elliott who received an honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music. Elliott, a five-time Grammy winner, received the honor alongside  Justin Timberlake and Alex Lacamoire.

Elliott is the first hip-hop artist to receive an honorary doctorate from the college. The rapper, producer and songwriter have clearly proven herself to be a trailblazer. Next month, Elliott will become the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
