There’s a new queen in town and she goes by the name Remy Ma!
Remy Ma now holds the bragging rights as the Best Female Hip Hop artist of the year after beating competition from Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliot, Cadi B and Young M.A
Yes, the rap artist broke Nicki Minaj’s winning streak at the just ended 2017 BET Awards making her the first after Nicki Minaj’s 7 year reign as queen of rap.
The internet would however not have this as many have questioned how Remy Ma won that category over Nicki Minaj.
During a speech that was as earnest as it was confrontational, Remy shouted out her husband, Papoose, the correctional facility she was incarcerated in, her fellow Terror Squad member Fat Joe before throwing some bars denouncing certain someones—or somebody. Pretty epic moment we’ll be hearing a lot about in the near future.
“I want to thank God, first and foremost, I’ve been through a lot,” Remy says in the beginning of her acceptance speech. “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 capped things off by delivering four bars from her Plata O Plomo song, “Spaghetti.””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,” Remy rapped. Who do you think she’s talking to?
In any case, shouts out to Remy for beating the odds and finding her way near the top of the rap game. She’s definitely earned it.
