“Are you dumb?” That’s how Remy Ma started her acceptance speech at the 2017 BET Awards, before she thanked her hubby Papoose as well as rapper, Fat Joe. She included a shout out to prisoners in her speech, telling them to always believe in second chances, doing time herself for eight years.
However, the moment in her speech everyone is talking about is how she wrapped it up, quoting a line from her song “Spaghetti,” specifically calling out Nicki Minaj; “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.”
The day before the BET Awards, Remy posted a video, and she says, “Thank you ASCAP for my songWRITER award, I’m so appreciative.” Nicki later posted about the same show, writing, “According to Universal Records, this year alone, my album catalogue sold 325K worldwide and#ThePinkprint is now at 4 Million worldwide. Since January, I’ve received 11 billboard entries, and yesterday with that ASCAP award, I became the most awarded female rapper in history,” she added. “They don’t want you to post your achievements & accomplishments. It makes them uncomfortable. But you must! B/c everyday, ppl broadcast your failures. They shout them to the mountain tops. So never EVER stop posting your accomplishments.”
