The female rap game has been on lock by Nicki Minaj since her “Pink Friday” reign, but the femcee might have to share the spotlight very soon with someone other than Iggy Azalea.

According to MTV News, Nicki’s homie Remy Ma has been released from prison and she’s already making plans to get back in the studio.

MTV News writes:

After serving a six-year prison sentence, Bronx rapper Remy Ma was released on Thursday (July 31).

Hot 97′s morning show reported that the former Terror Squad rapper was released from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in New York, around 8 a.m. on Thursday morning. Remy was greeted by her husband Papoose, in addition to her manager and other members of her entourage.



Just to refresh your memory, Remy was sentenced to eight years in prison for assault charges back in 2008 for shooting another woman for allegedly stealing $3000 from the rapper.

Update: Apparently Remy Ma was not released from prison today. According to new reports, her release was delayed because of disciplinary reasons.

MTV News writes:

Contrary to earlier reports, Remy Ma has not been released from prison, MTV News has confirmed. The Bronx rapper was scheduled to be released from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in New York on Thursday (July 31).

“Remy Smith’s tentative release date of July 31 was postponed due to a misbehavior report involving a July 21 incident for phone violations, particularly third party calling,” Linda Foglia, a public information officer for the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision told MTV News.

…Though there’s no way of knowing for sure, it seems this violation stems from when Remy called into Angie Martinez’s Power 105 show on July 21.


As of now, it’s unclear when she will now be released from prison.


  1. Good for her. Now hopefully she’ll get back in the studio and stop shooting birds over dumb sh-t.

    1. She need to work to pay for her ex friend hospital bills…..since her ex friend is paralyze, she will need to pay a settlement……shooting people over money. Smh

      1. Oh I know sis. But I’m saying it’s wasted years period because if she was smart she would have never did it. The girl is talented. She wasted years in prison when she could have been smart and made so much more out of herself.

  2. Great but I can’t see her going commercial so in my mind her career will never take off. She dope though.

  3. She was dumb to actually shoot someone over money. Now she has so much ground to make up and right now Hip Hop has been whitewashed so bad most people aren’t going to support her. Wasted talent.

  4. I wish her the best but it’s going to be hard the game has changed so much and she will have to adapt if she wants to be successful.

  5. Remy can out-rap most of the people in the game now, male or female. Unfortunately no one is going to be checking for her. Even Nicki is hanging on by a thread. The media wants whites to dominate the genre now and will do anything they can to make that happen.

    1. She got paroled to the projects??? Damn her hubby didn’t at least buy a house or get an apartment for them while she was in prison in the BX, Mt Vernon, Yonkers neighborhoods?? Smh I would b happy to be home but u knw how the projects are u can’t walk in or out w/o being seen or noticed and it’s summertime….so nothing a-s people are out all day sitting on the bench, sittin in the window or standing in the lobby

  6. I hope she doesn’t have the same hood mentality she had when she was put in prison. I liked her music.

  7. She should’ve just beat her friends a-s real good….my moms beat a bish ass ova $20 she knew from then not to fck wit my moms. Don’t call itself stealing from friends or people. People get their hands chopped in other countries..smh just don’t STEAL!!! But congrats to Remy…I knw her hubby Papoose is mad happy, he really was holding her down supporting. He’s the only dude I heard of doing that. Like some folks said tho Remy ain’t Neva gonna b on no Nicki level…she is gonna b an underground rapper. Idk maybe she could do something else like be behind scenes….or sell Remy hair idk lol

  8. Yassss!!!!! I always thought she was one of the best and so underrated as far as female rappers are concerned!!!!!

  9. You can’t be serious. So she was dumb enough to shoot her friend over money and go to jail, and now she’s dumb enough to prolong her time in jail over an interview. I can’t. I won’t. I shan’t.
