Remy Ma Speaks on Nicki Minaj, Fat Joe & Married Life Behind Bars

Radio personality Jenny Boom Boom of Conneticut’s Hot 93.7 station recently caught up with Remy Ma for an update on her life behind bars so far. [Listen Below]

From the phone interview it seems that just two years into her eight year jail stint, Remy is making the most out of her time in prison. After successfully appealing to be released from special lock-up so as to be placed into general population, Remy is just a few units away from an Associate’s degree and has remained on her best behavior so as not to jeopardize her scheduled conjugal visits with husband, Brooklyn MC Papoose.

“When I first got here I was just of control, I was just disgusted to be here, so I got in trouble a lot but then when I realized that that was going to affect my trailer visits I had to start shaping up” she shared. Remy is allowed daily visits and conjugal visits once every six weeks.

Although her husband and family have supported her, there is one person that still hasn’t checked in on the Grammy-nominated femcee. When asked if Fat Joe had made his way down to visit yet, Remy said “Never. Not once.“ Apparently she’s not really surprised by this either because “He’s not really a stand-up type of dude. I’m sure that if he didn’t think it’d probably backfire… he probably would.”

Aside from that, the Bronx rapper sounded optimistic about her future and looks forward to having her appeal approved and getting out of prison soon. “It seems really good because normally if it’s going to be ‘no,’ they usually tell you ‘no’ right away,” she explained. “So the fact that we’ve been waiting for a while, since October really …it’s in a way a good thing and hopefully I’ll be home soon, like before the summer. That’d be great.”

“If I was home there’d be little rappers running around… I’m like a little bit behind schedule but Pap is ready to go,” she says about her plans when she gets home. “I wanna go shopping… I really miss recording. Plus I like the competition, I’d like to make it not so easy for Nick [Nicki Minaj] right now.”

Speaking of the Young Money rapstress, Jenny Boom asked Remy straight up if the rumors about her having an affair with Minaj are true. “I’m not gay,” she said. “How would I have sex Nicki Minaj? I ain’t had sex with Nicki [or] anybody… I’m actually happy for her.”

For now, Ma says that she’s cool with Pap holding things down for her outside of prison. His light-hearted song “Bucket Naked,” which samples a sound bite from Bernie Mac’s character Dollar Bill in the 1998 film The Player’s Club, recently leaked on the internet. —Brooklyne Gipson

    If she’s doing a 8 year bid, how she going to be out by summer?

    • T. Money

      Parole nigga. Rarely does anyone do their whole sentence in prison unless they keep fuckin’ up and actin’ a fool in there.

  • Jamal7Mile

    I wish her well, but it’s my understanding that you have to do the full sentence for federal time… unless her appeal can shake things up.

    Did she fall out with Fat Joe? I missed that one.

  • http://xxlmag RUCK n NY

    Joe said he wasnt going to see her. He said she did things he cant forgive. IDK. I’m not in dat circle so I cant judge. Unlike Nicki Minaj Remy could actually rap tho.

    Remy Ma is cold blooded on the mic. 2 bad she f’ed it up for herself. easier said than done but when yr becoming hip hop royalty its time to live diffrent.
    Problems do come and hey flash the chrome if need be but carring gatz to fulfill some misguided mob fantasy is dumb.
    Check Prodigy doing three and didn’t even bust it. Lil Wayne doing a year and didn’t own it. Remy has more balls then most dudes she butsted her gat…to bad she shot a friend while drunk and not thinking straight. eight years almost a Shyne bid. damn…priorities FAIL

  • The real chris

    Damn hope remy make it home alot sooner than later,when she get out she will be more tuffer on the mic,me personally wish her well.p.s fuck fat joe remy u dont need him anyways.

  • Gift

    remy is pretty live on the mic, and to be honest, I was pretty disappointed when she got locked down. That was one of the few female mcs actually talking bout some shit. fat joe is dusch water.


    she may get out early because of an appeal. she still will probaly have to carry out her sentence in some type of capacity, but with enough money, the right lawyer, and showing the judge that you are making effort, an appeal can be won. her staying out of trouble and working hard helps. Plus, i’m sure her friend/or ex friend that she happened to shoot in the stomach might help her out. The female rap game is look strong again.
