Remy Ma talks prison, Nicki Minaj, and return to the rap game with Angie Martinez.
After serving 6 years at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women, Remy Ma will finally be a free woman on July 31st.Â The Bronx rapper, whoâs ten days out from being released, decided to call into Angie Martinez onÂ Power 105.1Â on Monday, and despite serving her time, sounds like the same ole Remy.
âI canât say that I was one of those people that went to prison and I had thisÂ dramaticÂ life change and I had this newfound outtake on life,â she said. âIn a lot of ways, Iâm the same.â
During their phone conversation, Angie and Remy talked about several different topics going on in her life, including her time in prison, marrying rapper Papoose, reconciling with Fat Joe, getting offers from major labels, her thoughts on Nicki Minaj, a reality show, and more.
Remy tells Angie that sheâs been fielding offers from various labels (âMore than I can count on one handâ) and isÂ working onÂ a reality show as well.
Check out some highlighted excerpts from the phone call below, and take a listen.
On her marriage to Papoose:Â âAfter six-and-a-half [years], itâs kinda serious. You gotta respect that. Thatâs official. â¦ Heâs an official dude. Nobody can ever front on that.â
On Fat Joe:Â âThat was one of my epiphanies that I had. I was like, âOK, now I see why he wanted to kill me.â I understand that. â¦ I can never hate him. Iâm the type of person that if I ever loved you, even if you make me mad, Iâma love you to death. Iâd never be able to stand there and watchÂ somebodyÂ do harm to him.â
On signing aÂ new deal:Â âI didnât want to sign anything as major as a deal from [prison]. A lot of things have changed since Iâve been gone, so I wanted to come home.â
On female rap:Â âIâve always repped for the chicks orwhatever, but I can stand next to the best of the dudes thatâs out there. Thatâs what I intend to do again.â
On Nicki Minaj:Â âNick has always been aÂ supporterÂ and vice versa. I like what she does. Sheâs done wonderful things for females, but I just wish there was more of them. I donât know what theyâre doing letting these guys take over.â
On her reality show:Â âTheyâre making me do it. I keep telling them no. Itâs too real.â
