The ninth-annual celebration will be held on Jan. 25 at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. Rapsody, who is up for two awards at this year’s Grammy ceremony, is a favorite of Missy’s, who tweeted her praises of the Laila’s Wisdom MC late last year.

Masked marvel Leikeli47 has also gotten the attention of the four-time Grammy winner, who has called her “super dope.” The feeling is also mutual for the Brooklynite.

“[Missy is] a walking legend,” she said in a 2015 interview. “I’m stuttering! She’s that dope! She’s that ill! She’s the reason why I’m here, I’m one of Missy’s kids…”

Looks like this tribute will be in great hands.
