New York rapper Remy Ma is finally set to be released from prison this summer, after serving a six-year sentence for assault. While incarcerated, she said she’s reconciled with Fat Joe.
In a new interview with Billboard, the 33-year-old said she’s spoken with her former Terror Squad associate, after years of being estranged. “I just recently spoke to him and we had a wonderful conversation,” said Remy. “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.”
Remy also discussed her post-prison plans. “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,” Remy said. “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.
While incarcerated, Remy has written “20 books or so of songs” … and that will remain her focus.
“I want people to know that Rem is still Rem,” she said. “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 … 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.”
