Remy Ma’s set at 2017 Summer Jam was a who’s who of iconic female rappers: Lil Kim, Young M.A., Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Lady of Rage and Cardi B joined her onstage before a very special performance of “Shether,” Remy’s Nicki Minaj diss track. The gathering of legendary female MCs seemed aimed to send a clear message: We were here first.
During her performance of “Shether,” images of Minaj in compromising poses and over-the-top outfits appeared on the projection screen. The collage also included old tweets and at least one image of Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost. Nicki, you better watch yourself.
Lil Kim has dabbled in her own Nicki Minaj diss tracks: Her “Black Friday” from 2011 was “Shether” ahead of its time.
