Remy Ma Wins Best “Female Hip Hop Artist”, Throws Shade at Nicki Minaj
Remy Ma ended Nicki Minaj’s streak of seven straight wins in the Best Female Hip Hop Artist category at the BET Awards.
When on Sunday night, Remy Ma took the stage to accept her award and give a speech, she recited lyrics from “Spaghetti”:
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
Many believe this to be a shot at Nicki, who Remy has called out as “fake” in the past, most notably on the diss track “Shether.”

Mary J. Blige Performs ‘Set Me Free’ & ‘Love Yourself’ With A$AP Rocky
At the 2017 BET Awards, Mary J. Blige — draped in diamonds and showing off her “breakup body,” as presenter Jamie Foxx later said — started her performance with a brief clip from “Set Me Free” before picking up production for the horn-heavy “Love Yourself.”
Halfway through the song, A$AP Rocky stepped onstage in a cloud of smoke. While the original track featured a verse from Kanye West, Blige recruited Rocky to appear in the music video. As he rapped his part, Blige danced in front of a vintage car before they ended the performance by embracing in a warm hug.
New Edition received a huge honor at the 2017 BET Awards when they were awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award.
All eyes were on New Edition, an iconic R&B group that formed in 1978, at the 2017 BET Awards on June 25. The band, which consists of Bobby Brown, 48; Johnny Gill, 51; Ronnie DeVoe, 49; Ralph Tresvant, 49; Ricky Bell, 49; and Michael Bivins, 48, was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
While accepting their award, Bobby said to the audience, “I want to say thank you to all of our fans, because y’all know I’ve been through some sh-t… If it wasn’t for the city of Boston, Orchard Park. There wouldn’t be a New Edition.” He added, “I used to tell the guys we were going to be successful, I just didn’t know how successful. I didn’t know how much the fans were going to stick with us as much you have.”

There are folks that think that Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris is only famous for being TI’s wife, and last night she proved there’s more to her than that after reuniting Xscape at the 2017 BET Awards.
Kandi Burruss, LaTocha Scott and Tamika Scott along with Tiny brought back old school R&B with a powerful medley of their hits including Understanding, Who Can I Run To and Just Kickin’ It.
