Remy Ma Shuts Down Summer Jam 2017 With Epic Performance
Double the heat, Double the fun.
Summer Jam 2017 was as hot as it was epic but steamy weather don’t stop no show! 60,000 attendees came out to turn up with a plethora of performers, one being Remy Ma.
Noted as a standout performance of the evening, the Bronx rapper performed fan favorites like “Conceited“ and “All The Way Up” before bringing out out hip-hop’s most prominent female MCs. Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, MC Lyte, Rah Digga, and Lady of Rage came out along side Remy to rap the classic, “U.N.I.T.Y.” Some of NYC’s newer rappers also came out to join in on the fun including Young M.A. and Cardi B, and the crowd went MAD for the Gangsta Bitch Music star.
The Nicki Minaj shade did not go unnoticed. Not only did Remy Ma exclude Nicki from the set but she soon launched into “shETHER,” while a photo of the Queens rapper was displayed on screen behind her, that and of course the resounding “F*ck Nicki Minaj” she didn’t hesitate to mention before finishing up. I mean, I guess it makes since to re-escalate rap beef after a bunch of females MC rock the mic in an industry were our voices are often marginalized?
However, this did come a few days after 2 Chainz’s “Realize” track from his Pretty Girls Like Trap Music was leaked and revealed new shots taken at the Remy from Nicki, which included accusing the rapper of having her husband Papoose ghostwrite “shETHER.”
Petty is as petty does, but nonetheless, the performance was top-notch. Check out some clips below.
