Remy beat out Missy Elliot, Nicki Minaj, Young M.A. and Cardi B to take home the crown.

Jun, 25, 2017

The last few years have been a non-stop ride of success for 2017 ESSENCE Festival performer Remy Ma on the professional front and now she has another accomplishment to add to her growing list.

ESSENCE Festival 2017 single-night tickets and ticket packages are on sale now! For more info and the latest news, visit our Festival page here.

Remy's exciting start to this year so far has seen her snag two Grammy nominations, drop a joint album with Fat Joe, return to reality TV to celebrate Black love with her husband Papoose, go to lyrical battle with nemesis Nicki Minaj and make history at Hot 97's Summer Jam concert with past and present women in Hip Hop. Keeping the momentum going, she's now snagged a 2017 BET Award for Best Female Hip Hop Artist. 

The rapstress took to the stage with words of celebration, encouragement and thanks to accept her well-deserved award. And of course, she couldn't leave the stage without reminding the crowd of what she does best, spitting a quick verse that ended with, "And yeah that crown is coming back to the Bronx," -- an obvious message to Nicki and anyone else who considers her competition. 

Remy beat out Missy Elliot, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and Young M.A. to take home the honor. Her win brings her total list of BET Awards to 4, including last year's wins for  Best Track of The Year and Best Hip Hop Collaboration, for her hit single "All The Way Up."

Be sure to grab your tickets to see Remy Ma light up the stage for the very first time, alongside more of the biggest names in music, at the 2017 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans this July.
