This is not only huge for Dr.Missy Elliot's career but the entire Hip Hop Community and Women's empowerment movement. The fact that the world is acknowledging Missy's hard work but also that this happened in the city of Boston. Home of some of the best schools in the country and this just makes it even better. In her speech she mentioned how she overcame a lot of battles during her pursuit of her doctorates degree and encouraged everyone to keep going for their dreams and goals at any cost. Go Missy! Also with the same energy Justin Timberlake also graduated from Berklee big ups to the Goat JT!  Both received honorary doctorates from the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
