The sun will be shining on Missy Elliott this summer. 

Let's begin with what we already know: in June, Missy Elliot will become the first female hip-hop star to be inducted in the Song Writers Hall of Fame. Pretty amazing honor right?

Well, the pre-celebration has been announced!

A month before her induction, Boston's Berklee College of Music has announced that they will be recognizing Missy Elliott with an honoray Doctor of Music Degree.  The degree is a way of recognizing Missy's contribution and influence in the music world.  

The ceremony is set to take place May 11th and musicians Justin Timberlake and Alex Lacamoire will also be receiving the same honorary degree.
