Elliott’s long-time manager, Mona Scott-Young, along with nightlife entrepreneur Unik Ernest curated the star-studded event which hosted an impressive list of guests.
Queen Latifah, Cardi B, Lil’ Kim, Regina King, Ice-T and Coco, Blac Chyna, Lil’ Mama, Naturi Naughton were among the elite who came out to celebrate with Elliott.
“We wanted to celebrate Missy, and honor her success and contributions to the culture, so where better to do that than a place inspired by her genius and creativity,” says Scott-Young. “Words can’t express how proud I am of Missy. She is an icon and truly deserves to be celebrated.”
The event was held at “The Museum of Missy Elliott,” an interactive pop-up playground that allowed guests to engage in the most memorable and iconic moments from Elliott’s music videos. The concept boasted a live hologram experience where guests could record a gif of themselves performing to Elliott’s hit classic “The Rain,” while virtually wearing her signature inflated trash bag.
