Brooklyn rapper Lil Kim recently offered her take on Remy Ma's jail woes and said despite past issues, she is down to extend a hand in any time of need.
Kim, who spent a year behind bars in the mid-2000's, said there is nothing but support for Remy as she serves out an eight-year sentence.
Kim also addressed the recent trend of female emcees going to prison and despite their history of quarreling, she extended somewhat of an olive branch to incarcerated rapper, Remy Ma. "At this moment right now, anybody in prison, my heart goes out to them," she shared. "If Remy was like, "Yo, I need something..." I'm the type of person that would reach out and help her and when she comes home we don't have to speak." (XXL Mag)
A few weeks ago, the jailed rapper's husband Papoose spoke on her incarceration.
"It don't mess with me at all," Papoose said in an interview. "It actually inspires me. It inspires me to do better, because that could be me in that situation. It could be you or anybody living in this country. None of us are exempt from that; it could happen to any one of us. Everybody that's incarcerated is not guilty." (Good Fella Media)
Former rap rival Lady Luck previously told SOHH she wished the best for Remy during her bid.
"As far as her legal woes are concerned, I don't wish that on no one," Lady told SOHH referring to Remy Ma's eight-year jail sentence. "You know what I mean? It's trying on people mentally, I know especially for her, because she had her career, her child and regardless of whatever happened between her and I, I never wish that on nobody. I don't wish that on nobody because I did a punk a** 110 days [behind bars] and I know I was in there dying. So eight years, six years year, whatever. Regardless of what happened between us, I couldn't wish that on her. My heart goes out to her in her situation." (SOHH)
She made headlines after an appeal was rejected in a New York courtroom last year.
New York's top court has upheld the conviction of rapper Remy Ma in the shooting of a friend in 2007. In a ruling Thursday, the Court of Appeals rejected arguments that a judge didn't properly inform jurors before they rendered a guilty verdict. The rapper's real name is Remy Smith. She's serving eight years in prison for criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of assault stemming from the struggle in which a friend was shot. Smith had accused the friend of stealing $3,000 from her pocketbook. (My Fox News)
