In the most Supa Dupa Fly news we’ve heard today, Missy Elliott will be the first woman rapper to receive the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

An honor so rare that it isn’t even given out annually, this special MTV Moon Man is bestowed upon the very few artists and directors whose works have pushed forward the medium of the music video. Missy’s groundbreaking videos from “Get Your Freak On” to “Work It” have all been showstoppers and remain timeless classics, so finally getting the music video equivalent of the lifetime achievement award is well worth it.

Missy will also be performing at the VMAs, which will air on MTV Monday, August 26.
