Remy Ma Preaches “U.N.I.T.Y.” With Historic All-Star Female MC Summer Jam Set

Remy Ma truly made Summer Jam history yesterday at New Jersey’s Met Life Stadium with a female empowerment set that included guest appearances by female MCs Young M.A., Cardi B. and Lil Kim. Then, in a move that Remy called the “highlight of the night” she brought out several pioneering female rappers including: MC Lyte, Monie Love, Rah Digga, The Lady of Rage and, finally, Queen Latifah, who led the group in a powerful rendition of Latifah’s Grammy-winning hip hop anthem “U.N.I.T.Y.” Remy closed her set with a performance of “Shether,” staking her claim as the real queen of New York hip hop by putting an “In Memory Of” photo of Nicki Minaj on the infamous Summer Jam screen. So maybe that “U.N.I.T.Y.” only extends but so far. Anyway, another great year in the books offering further proof why there’s no better place for hip hop beef than the Hot 97 Summer Jam stage.
