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. The Bronx rapper, who’s ten days out from being released, decided to call into Angie Martinez on Power 105.1 on Monday, and despite serving her time, sounds like the same ole Remy.
“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.”
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 she’s been fielding offers from various labels (“More than I can count on one hand”) and is working on a reality show as well.
Check out some highlighted excerpts from the phone call below, and take a listen.
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 orwhatever, 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.”
