As fans went on a frenzy about Cardi B’s two BET nods, female rapper Dreezy went on a twitter rant about not getting any recognition for being the only female rapper this era to release a full project, here are the tweets: 

After having time to get over her saltiness of not being nominated, Dreezy tipped her hat to all the female rappers nominated in Best Female Hip-Hop Artist category. This category seems to be this year’s biggest anticipation. Rap beef between Nicki Minaj and Remy, have been the topic of discussion for the past few months. Nicki has held the crown in this category for seven years straight, being the only female rapper to win this award that many times surpassing Missy Elliot who’ve won four years prior. If you’re judging by radio play or artist popularity then you probably expect Young M.A, Cardi, or Remy to win, but this is an award that is ran by votes of the fans. Nicki Minaj’s fan base is larger than all of the ladies combined, so there is no doubt the Queen of Rap will be taking this award home for the eighth year in a row beating her own record.

The BET Awards will be held this year on June 25 live at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m.
