Missy Elliott‘s hometown is honoring the rapper by naming a street in the new entertainment district after her.
According to reports, the Portsmouth City Council voted unanimously to change the name of a 1-mile section of McLean Street to Missy Elliott Boulevard.
Elliott, born Melissa Arnette Elliott, graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School, now Manor High. Portsmouth resident and lifelong fan Erin Carter made the name change request to honor the artist she says had the courage to take on the world stage.
“I am forever GRATEFUL [prayer emoji] P-TOWN [raised hands emoji] VA #757 LOVE,” Elliott said in response to the news on Twitter.
