In an interview from prison, Remy Ma talks about her Fat Joe beef and her plans after she's released.
The return of Remy Ma is quickly approaching. In July, the Bronx rapper will be released from prison after serving a six-year sentence for assault, and she plans to make up for her lost time. In a new interview from prison with Billboard, Remy touched on several topics including reconciling with her old partner Fat Joe, and her plans after she's released.
"I have a new outlook on a lot of things. I'm ready to see the world with these new pair of eyes of mine." "Everyone says I'm not missing anything but I think they're just saying that so I don't feel bad. I'm excited to get back into the game and make it a little bit more interesting."
The former Terror Squad lady also has squashed the beef with her old partner Fat Joe. She says,
"I just recently spoke to him and we had a wonderful conversation. It started off a little awkward. We're both like, 'Just say what you want to say.' We were both holding on to our egos. 'Well what do you want to say?' 'No what do you want to say?' We finally let it go. We ended up talking about things I want to do when I get home. He said, 'I still think you're the dopest female rapper ever.' I'm like, 'Really?!' When you put egos and pride aside, and be the real people that you are it works out… I told him that when I do go home I'm going to make it my business that we talk more."
While she's been receiving offers for a reality show, music remains her passion and priority. She has written "20 books or so of songs" while serving her time at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility For Women in New York.
"I want people to know that Rem is still Rem. There's a history of artists that go to jail and when they get home they're not all that or even do anything. I'm not falling into that category. In my opinion, the only one that did some significant time then came home and went stupid was 'Pac. That's what I want to do. I want to come home and make an impact. I feel like my time was cut short and I didn't get to blossom where I wanted to be in my career."
As for her music career, she hopes to work with DJ Mustard, Rico Love, Rick Ross, and she's a big fan of Meek Mill. "He's one of my favorites right now. I love everything he puts out. I fuck with French [Montana]. I like Nicki [Minaj]. She's been doing her thing. I like that YG kid, a lot. When July comes around, I'm around. That's my motto: I'm around."
Papoose's wife also plans to take some time and just enjoy life. "I'm going to get my hair done. I'm going to get my nails done. People see me as this rough tomboy. I'm a girly girl. And I'm married! I'm over here married, without my nails done"
"After I get dolled up and lay down some records and my voice is out, I want to get away and get my back blown out for like a week. Mess up the hair and make-up that I got done. I have been in prison for a while."
