(AllHipHop News) From 2010 through 2016, the BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist went to one woman.
Nicki Minaj’s seven-year win streak in the category ended last night when Remy Ma won the honor for 2017.
The crowd at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater gave the Bronx rhymer a standing ovation as she went on stage to accept her award.
“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,” said Remy during her acceptance speech.
Since being released from prison in 2014, Remy Ma joined the cast of Love & Hip Hop and partnered with Fat Joe for the double platinum single “All The Way Up.”
Joe and Rem also released the joint album Plata O Plomo in 2017.
In addition, Remy has been engaged in a feud with Minaj which included the well received diss track “Shether.”
The New Yorker ended her BET speech by saying, “Y’all b-tches 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.”
Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Young M.A, and Missy Elliott were the other nominees up for the 2017 Best Female Hip-Hop Artist award.
