Remy Ma Wins Best Female Hip Hop Artist At 2017 BET Awards
Remy Ma ends Nicki Minaj’s winning streak.
The wait is finally over. For months, it was up for debate as to who the best female emcee is, but on Sunday, Remy Ma nabbed the award for Best Female Hip Hop artist at the 2017 BET Awards – beating Nicki Minaj, Young M.A., Cardi B, and Missy Elliot. Minaj has won the award for the past seven years.
During her acceptance speech, the “Money Showers” rapper first thanked the man above, “I want to thank God, first and foremost, I’ve been through a lot. To everybody who thinks there’s no such thing as second chances, I’m here to tell you that’s a lie. You just gotta keep working hard.”
“Shout out to everybody in Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, Albion Correctional Facility. Anybody on parole—it’s hard, but you can do it. You can get second chances, you can make mistakes and come back.
My husband—Black love—I love you Papoose. When I didn’t believe in myself, you believed in me. My business partner, my brother, Fat Joe Crack. The whole entire team, Remy Mafia.”
Remy wrapped up her speech with a few bars from “Spaghetti”, a track featured on her and Fat Joe’s Plato O Plomo album, “I just wanna say, “Y’all bitches got fat while we starved / 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.” Ouch! It’s obvious Remy was referring to her rival, Minaj.
