After 6 ½ years behind bars, Bronx raptress Remy Ma is on her way to becoming a free woman. Hmm...are Nicki Minaj & Iggy Azalea ready? More inside…
Remy Ma is counting down the hours till she is released from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. She captioned the above pic, "One more day and a wake up"—jail slang for how much longer she has until she's a free woman.
In the past weeks, celebs such as Bow Wow, Jadakiss and Busta Rhymes (along with anxious fans) have been making videos announcing the "Conceited" rapper's return, posting them to her Instagram account. Rem was originally sentenced to eight years back in 2008 for shooting her former friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the stomach after she accused her of stealing money from her purse.
Last week, the 34-year-old raptress spoke with Angie Martinez on Power 105 from behind bars and she dished on her life inside the big house, how she can’t wait to make her grand return on the rap scene and even talked about the competition…Nicki Minaj. She also talked about hashing it out with her former labelmate Fat Joe, marrying rapper Papoose in prison, getting her associates degree in Sociology while locked up and starring in her own reality show when gets out.
After so many years, is Rem ready to take over the rap game? She said, "Stand back. It’s not gonna be fair. My pen game is crazy.”
Hopefully SOMEBODY can save us from the current female rap game...
Here are the highlights:
On her marriage to Papoose:“After six-and-a-half [years], it’s kinda serious. You gotta respect that. That’s official. … He’s an official dude. Nobody can ever front on that.”
On Fat Joe: “That was one of my epiphanies that I had. I was like, ‘OK, now I see why he wanted to kill me.’ I understand that. … I can never hate him. I’m the type of person that if I ever loved you, even if you make me mad, I’ma love you to death. I’d never be able to stand there and watch somebody do harm to him.”
On signing a new deal: “I didn’t want to sign anything as major as a deal from [prison]. A lot of things have changed since I’ve been gone, so I wanted to come home.”
On female rap:“I’ve always repped for the chicks or whatever, but I can stand next to the best of the dudes that’s out there. That’s what I intend to do again.”
On Nicki Minaj:“Nick has always been a supporter and vice versa. I like what she does. She’s done wonderful things for females, but I just wish there was more of them. I don’t know what they’re doing letting these guys take over.”
On her reality show: “They’re making me do it. I keep telling them no. It’s too real.”
