This year’s BET Awards will be held on June 25 at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The nominations list is now released and the category for Best Female Hip Hop Artist has people talking.

On this list for 2017 are rivals Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma. Since 2010, Nicki Minaj has taken home the trophy for Best Female Hip Hop Artist. Although well deserved, many are counting on BET to assign a new winner: Remy Ma.  Terror Squad’s Remy Ma has held it down for female emcees since being released from serving time in prison. With hits like “All The Way Up,” which was nominated for a Grammy this year, Remy could end Nicki’s reign.

Other females who made the cut were Missy Elliott, Young M.A, and Cardi B.

As for R&B/Pop, Beyoncé is leading the pack with seven nominations: Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, Video of the Year, Video Director of the Year, Album of the Year, and more.
