The Bronx rapper won the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award at the BET Awards 2017, which is perhaps the first time in like seven years that Nicki Minaj didn’t win it. She started her acceptance speech on a positive note telling the audience that she is a living testament to second chances and even shoutout everybody serving time in “Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, Albion Correctional Facility, anybody on parole.”
Following that very positive opener, Remy Ma couldn’t resist taking a few shots at Nicki Minaj whom she has been beefing with since the start of this year. “Y’all bitches got fat while we starved,” Remy freestyle. “Shots in your ass, pads in your bras / Y’all some liars, it ain’t no facts in your songs / And yeah, that crown is coming back to the Bronx.” She also shouted out the legendary rapper/actress herself Queen Latifa. Remy Ma is clearly still reveling in the buzz that she got from that Nicki Minaj diss track “shETHER.”
Some hip hop fans, presumably a lot of who are Nicki Minaj fans, think that Remy Ma is undeserving of the award and Nicki or Missy Elliott should have won the trophy. “You dumb if you really think Remy Ma deserved that award over Nicki Minaj, Young MA, Cardi B, or Missy. BET was just being petty as sh*t,” one fan wrote.
