Remy Ma Talks Prison, Nicki Minaj, & Return to Rap with Angie Martinez

Remy Ma

It’s been six years since Remy Ma went away. The Bronx rapper, who’s “nine days and a wake up” from being released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women, called into Angie Martinez on Power 105.1 on Monday. Despite her time behind bars, she’s still the same Rem.

“I can’t say that I was one of those people that went to prison and I had this dramatic life change and I had this newfound outtake on life,” she said. “In a lot of ways, I’m the same.”

While locked up, she received her associates degree in sociology, married Papoose, and had plenty of time to reflect. “I grew up a lot and I look at things a lot differently,” said the 34-year-old protégée of Big Pun.

One of her “epiphanies” was reconciling with her fellow Terror Squad member Fat Joe. She called him up and they shared laughs while reflecting on the past. “It was a really, really dope conversation,” she said.

She can’t wait to return to the mic. “I am so alive,” said Remy. “This is gonna be unfair.”

She’s been fielding offers from various labels (“More than I can count on one hand”) and is working on a reality show.

While they’ve had their differences in the past, she once again shared her support for Nicki Minaj. “She’s done wonderful things for females,” said Remy.

She didn’t hang up without delivering a warning to her competition: “Stand back. It’s not gonna be fair. My pen game is crazy.”

Check out highlights from the 14-minute interview below.

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.”

    “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.”

    HONESTLY REM? You been in jail so damn long, you don’t even know half the story. A woman who disses her “idols” on her mixtape is in no position to create female unity. And then when the bitch is on top of her game, she didn’t even dare to reach her hand out to help NO other female artist reach commercial success. (Foxy bum ass don’t count). Instead of Nicki helping out all the upcoming female rappers and returning veterans, she reached the top and closed the door behind her. With her selfish ass. Why is it Lauryn, Missy, Kim, Left Eye and etc were all able to make music together and make a impact against the male rappers back in the day?

    NOW… Iggy’s on top, and instead of Nicki being Genuine and Humble, she throws shade, causing her fan base to start a ridiculous war with Iggy’s fans. Smh Remy do not trust this snake.

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    You are the one who doesn’t know half the story. Of course you hate on Nicki, you are going to support any bad theory about her. No old female supported her when she was underground, why would she do the same when not even new females support or give her credit for opening doors. And YES, piece of illiterate dumb ignorant used napkin, she opened the doors for all this new females.

    You think, if Nicki wouldn’t have done pop in 2012, Iggy would be somehow famous now? You think, if it wasn’t for FINALLY a female rapper attracting press and releasing GOOD music now, all the new rap chicks wouldn’t get signed or even would people be interested in them? You think if it wasn’t for Nicki the fat korean old joke would be relevant at all now, or the squandering disser street tramp would have recieved any attention, or the shady irreverent group of wack a.s b.tches would have been signed to a label, or the dreadful lubra derision wannabe of a rapper would be number one now?

    Am I hating on all this females? Just the bad ones who have delusional and dumb fans with the nerve to believe their fave is good.

    Nicki Minaj is the only good female rapper. Of course you don’t think she is because, either you are too stupid or tasteless to believe it, or hate her too much to admit it.

    The real question is why I even try, y’all are hopeless…

    @Andy, O_O @ at all these lies u written in ur essay. Iggy would be successful w/o nicki doing pop. Have u ever heard of asinger/rapper named kesha that was killin the charts b4 nicki came along? U and the rest of these barbz r dumb and delusional. Lil kim showed icki love b4 her and young money stole kim whole image and made a kim clone,iggy showed her love on her mixtape,angel haze showed her love in interviews and said nicki was an inspiration,and I knw just not gone sit here telling a bold face lie about trina showing this bitch mad love. She had nicki as a feature on her album,did remixes with her,made a boss bitch move and even did a tribute to her and young money. Do ur research and state facts liar. Like kim said this bitch wants to be the only female rapper so bad. Now its hurting her cause another bitch winning.

    The Flopprint is gonna tank just like all the features shes done this year and Nicki has no #1 so she SHOULD be kissing I-G-G-Y ass right now to gain some relevance because

    Piss N Floption is not ever getting #1 on Billboard

    Rae Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, Actually iggy initiated the feud back in 2010 when she threw shade at nicki for her bet award performance and Nicki never mentioned it until a year ago when the tweet resurfaced that’s why they don’t get along and as too the rest most of them are whack now when nicki see a dope female she will put them on like honey cocaine nicki likes her she actually follows her on twitter and nicki likes remy ma nicki likes artist that aren’t boring and whack and all the old heads are are just that old they flows are tired and they lyrics are extremely boring

    @BEDSTUYFLY,

    I’m honestly so sick of seeing you post on EVERYTHING Nicki related, if you don’t like her then go the fuck away you dumb ass. you obviously are obsessed with her for you to post on literally everything she does!

    And saying Nicki dissed females on her mixtapes? Are you fucking stupid? What female rapper do you know that has never said anything like “they are the best” or “fuck these other bitches”? THAT’S WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO SAY YOU DUMB FUCK BITCH! IT’S FUCKING HIP-HOP IT’S SUPPOSE TO BE COMPETITIVE! Iggy says on her verse with T.I. “pardon me but I don’t think any of these bitches fucking with me” IT’S FUCKING HIP-HOP YOU DUMB ASS! You taking everything Nicki says to heart like a little bitch!

    And as for her not working with any other female rappers? That’s a lie she has worked with Trina a lot, and again in the My Chick Bad video with Train, Eve, and Diamond!

    Also Nicki does not have to kiss anyone’s ass! She has a video back in her Roman Reloaded era that no female rapper has reached out to work with her. Don’t put Nicki up there like she has to make the first move just because she is on top! ANYBODY COULD MAKE THE FIRST MOVE!

    GET THE FUCK OFF OF NICKI YOU STUPID CUNT, SINCE YOU ALWAYS WANT TO TALK SHIT!

    It’s funny how you mentioned Lauryn Hill, there’s no doubt that she is THE most successful female rapper of all time but I don’t remember her reaching her hand out to help another another female rapper “reach commercial success” and now when I think about it she has never shouted them out nor she friends with at least one.

    But Nicki on the other hand has shouted out female rapper numerous of times whether it’s in acceptance speech or radio interview. She friends with 3 ( Trina, Foxy and Remy) and has shown support to many non-mainstream rapper such as Kreayshawn and Honey C. She has also acknowledge Angel Haze, Iggy and Azealia

    Azealia was offered to tour with Nicki but turned it down and they got into a squabble on twitter.

    And why doesn’t “foxy bum ass” count? It’s funny how you could sit down and type about “ridiculous stan wars” when you and and the rest of Kim’s stans are still on Foxy’s case (17 years later) you’re too old for this.

    Let’s talk about Missy now, who was on top of the game with her 2x platinum album ‘Under construction’. Did she reach out a hand to help another female rapper reach commercial success post under construction and Trina’s bum ass don’t count ( because that was before Under construction , so it really doesn’t count)

    You see how stupid and hypocritical you look, criticising Nicki for the same thing both Lauyrn and Missy has done.

    Lets not dismiss all the shades that Iggy has thrown at Nicki. The most recent one was on the night of summer jam which made the poor sis had a meltdown on Instagram afterward because everyone and their mama was dragging her.

    “Smh Remy do not trust this snake.”

    Oh I’m sorry do you know Nicki personally .

    [Reply]

    Oh Reply:

    @KEN., U DUMB AF IF U DIDNT KNOW LAURYN HILL IS VERY GOOD FRIENDS WITH KIM,MISSY, AND FOXY.

    NOW let me school you on Missy. MISSY has NUMEROUS time supported Nicki, she has collabs with Kim, Queen Latifah,MC Lyte … ETC

    When is the LAST time Nicki has collaborated with a female rapper ON HER ALBUM? OR EVEN DID A FEATURE? All she does is bash female rappers then say “I’m in my own lane, i’m competiting with men” bitch FOH , your just insecure and dont want to help the next bitch

    [Reply]

    KEN. Reply:

    @Oh,

    Taking a pic =/= being ‘good friends’

    You didn’t exactly school me, Nicki has always supported them aswell

    When was the last time Eve, Foxy, Lauryn, Remy or even Queen Latifah collaborated with a female rapper on their album or even a feature.

    And? I can name many female Mcs that have ‘bashed Mcs’ on their track , FOH. This is RAP!

    Just like how insecure lil kim was to feature FOXY BROWN on Ladies night.

    [Reply]

    Oh Reply:

    @KEN., WHAT R U TLKN About Foxy has several times mentioned how close she is with Lauryn, your basic bitch probably went to go look up THE RAP QUEENS iconic Vibe spread

    little do you know their friendship is REAL, UNLIKE Nicki who only brung out Foxy to discredit her real INSPIRATION Lil Kim

    When was the last time ANY of the girls above been out trying to pursue a rap career in this decade?

    Why would Kim feature her enemy on Ladies Night? Nicki dont even do songs with the females on her DAMN LABEL. Nicki thinks shes above female rappers because she has a flop KMart line and a cheap perfume line

    [Reply]

    KEN. Reply:

    @Oh,

    And what source did you get the lie ‘that foxy and Lauryn are so close’ from?

    And SO? What about in their time when they were rapping? Why didn’t the collaborate with another female rapper?

    God y’all are so hypocritical and stupid!

    They weren’t beefing in 1997, like do you know anything about Rap other than Nicki Minaj & Iggy.

    Erm she did a song with Shannel from YM though

    She made $1.5M from 25K bottles sold of that ‘cheap perfume’ in 1 day

    Oh Reply:

    @KEN., Your the dumbest bitch ever. Lemme school you again.

    Foxy and Kim were IN FACT Not Cool in 1997, hence why they NEVER Did the collab, they were beefing over people saying they were stealing eachother look and style and The Firm had beef with JUNIOR Mafia youngin

    you probably should give your Flop Friday Reflopped CD a break and go read about hip hop since you seem to be very miseducated. Go read then come and try to make some sense. Your probably only like 12 trying to TELL ME what I actually WITNESSED go down in hip hop .

    You are too old for this mess

    Oh Reply:

    @KEN., bitch i’m old now? cuz I actually know about hip hop and you dont?

When she was on the come up, what female rapper(Kim,foxy,Eve,Missy,Remy,etc.) helped her out. Jay z hardly collabs with anybody. Beyonce either.It’s a dog eat dog world out here. Get ya own.
