Bruno Mars won two awards on the night while Chance The Rapper was named best new artist.

Remy Ma has ended rival Nicki Minaj’s seven-year winning streak at the 2017 BET Awards.

Ma, who was released from prison in 2014, won best female hip hop artist Sunday in Los Angeles, an award Minaj has won since 2010. Ma last won the prize in 2005, and was sentenced to prison three years later after she shot a former friend after accusing her of theft.

In March, Ma released the hostile diss track “Shether,” which earned praised from critics and rap fans. Minaj never officially responded to the song.
