Remy Ma continued her homecoming this week by stopping by BET's "106 & Park" to discuss her six-year prison sentence, recent release and what she learned from the incident that put her behind bars.

"It's just a wonderful thing and I know it's definitely a blessing from up," said Remy, who was welcomed with cheers.

While incarcerated, one of the hardest things for her to get used to  was to rely on other. "I would say the hardest thing that it took me to get used to was asking people for things because you can't just go the store, you can't do anything for yourself," said Remy.

Later, Remy talked about the the female rap game. She previously expressed interest in working with Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea. "Some people have a problem as females telling other females when they're doing something good or even working with them. They feel like it's competition," she said. "I'm happy to see any female—any black, young individual or minority doing well, and I would do anything to help that."

Remy also addressed the changes since her return, especially the rise of social media, taking selfies and her new phone -- all of which she's still learning. "I took a selfie already. I haven't mastered it yet. I haven't even mastered the phone yet, I push all the wrong buttons," she emailed.
