Remy thanked her collaborator Fat Joe as well as family and friends before rapping the following: "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".

"Did Nas clear that "Ether" record?" Her track "Shether" was released in the spring and was well received by fans.

Nicki Minaj's seven years on top as the BET Awards's best female hip hop artist came to an abrupt end last night as Remy Ma swooped in to take the title. They were Cardi B, Missy Elliot and Young M.A.

Before the 2017 BET Awards, Ma was in Beverly Hills, California.

One insider shared: "Make no mistake, Nicki was pissed about the Remy win, but she is not gonna show it. Nicki is still the queen, she knows it, her fans know it, hell, even the world knows it". Oh, and in her spare time, she's been funding an entire Indian village. Remy Ma won the Best Female Hip Hop Artist award.

A special Lifetime Achievement honour was bestowed upon New Edition's Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant, Ronnie DeVoe, Ricky Bell and Johnny Gill, who spoke of faith and weathering "highs and lows" during a career that dates back to the 1980s. "Wish I was there to receive it. Thank you so much!" the singer wrote in the post, mentioning Katz in a hashtag. While Bruno Mars struck gold for best male R&B/ pop artiste and Migos took the prize for best group home. "Whoa", screamed Jamie Foxx, who presented an award after Blige's performance. El DeBarge and Kamasi Washignton performed "Careless Whisper" in honor George Michael, who died previous year on Christmas Day, while Janelle Monae collaborator Roman GianArthur excitedly sang "Johnny B. Goode" in tribute to Chuck Berry, who died in March.

Nicki Minaj attends the "Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology" Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 2, 2016 in New York City.
