Sunday night’s BET Awards was action-packed full of surprises, one of them being the winner of the “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.” The competition was tough with Missy Elliott, Young M.A, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B. and Remy Ma. Minaj has won the award seven years in a row, but this year’s nominees made the running a very stiff competition.

In the end, most viewers thought it would be between Remy Ma and Cardi B. Once the smoke cleared Minaj’s current arch nemesis, Remy Ma took home the big 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,” Remy said on stage during her acceptance speech. But, it was the ending of her speech that caught everyone’s attention:
“Y’all b***hes 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.”
At the end of her speech, she shouted out Queen Latifah, Lil Kim and Cardi B. who were all in the building. Afterward, fellow nominee and former “Love & Hip Hop” castmate Cardi B. congratulated Remy on the win.
