When Latto and Nicki Minaj were firing off tweets to one another, Remy Ma was a spectator like the rest of us. The rapper knows all too well what it is like beefing with the Queens star. These days, she’s putting that past tension behind her. Their animosity began sometime in the mid-2000s, and some believe it all stemmed from lyrics about who was the true “queen of Rap.” Whatever the case, things quickly unraveled, and Remy unleashed “ShEther,” a diss track that stunned Hip Hop.
Nicki and Remy are mothers and wives pushing forward in their careers. Although neither brings up their past rift, the “Lean Back” hitmaker often faces questions. This occurred more recently during her chat with The Jason Lee Show, where the host wanted to pick Remy’s brain.

Lee mentioned that Minaj and Latto’s fallout began over whether or not the Grammys would classify the legend’s song as Rap. Remy was asked if it mattered, and she told Lee he would have to ask one of the ladies involved. However, she did mention her nominations, stating that she lost out to The Black Eyed Peas and, later, Chance The Rapper. Remy also noted Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, and (finally) Nas have Grammys, so The Recording Academy may be shifting.
Additionally, she said “it’s a voting system” that isn’t necessarily based on numbers or a more defined structure. “Once you get nominated, you’re a part of the committee. You can vote, but a lot of times, it seems like whoever is signed to the label with the most people that are on the board, that’s who usually wins. You’re obviously gonna vote for your artists.”
