Incarcerated rapper Remy Ma has inked a letter updating fans on her living condition and her issues with the media as of late.
While not naming a particular source, the former Terror Squad member explained her issues with both print and television news.
"I used to be one of those people that watched the news and bought the newspaper everyday and believed that everything that I was seeing and reading was true; up until the point where I ended up in their reports in a negative light," she wrote. "Now I only read the papers for the horoscopes and the comics and I only watch the news for the lottery numbers. They couldn't even get my name or age right, more less the color of my vehicle that was right behind them parked in front of the precinct. Many reporters get their information at 4th, 3rd, 2nd hand at best. They're at liberty to word a headline however they see fit in order to sell the highest number of papers but rarely do they take a moment to stop and think that this is someone's life that they're tampering with, someone with a family, someone that might have children."

Her husband, Papoose, recently updated fans on Remy's overall well-being and explained his issues with the media.
"Remy, she's maintaining and she's getting through it," Pap explained in an interview with Jenny Boom Boom. "I visit her every other day at this point and kids want autographs from both of us. In the beginning I was there everyday, but I got a lot of things to maintain out here so I'm there every other day. Yup [we're married.]...[The wedding] was the best it could possibly be. It's something that I'm proud of and we're gonna stick by each other...Her son is good money, he's maintaining. He goes to see her from time to time...We're just teaching him the right things, letting him know his mother is gonna be out here soon...Dudes really don't hold females down when it comes to these situations. Real people do real things, I do it from the heart...[The Rikers Island rumors] is the New York Post once again taking shots at me. I mean it's true I went there to do a show, I went to Rikers Island before for an inmate, when I went there, it was smooth, the inmates had a good time, nothing happened...I would have been arrested if that happened."

The Post recently reported on Pap sparking a prison "war" which reportedly began from a 2006 concert.
Correction officials are looking into why supervisors -- including jail warden and fan Emmanuel Bailey -- allowed Brooklyn rapper Papoose to do a nearly two-hour show at the lockup on May 30, 2006, sources said. There were eight slashings and stabbings at the George Motchan Detention Center in the months after the show, when Papoose's jailed rival ordered attacks on the rapper's imprisoned pals. Papoose, 30, has a longstanding feud with Dough Boy, 28, an ex-Bloods gang leader whose real name is Miguel Jeffrey. (New York Post)
