Incarcerated rapper Remy Ma recently updated fans on her life behind bars and revealed, since getting locked up in 2008, her former Terror Squad crew has shown little to no love.
Asked if Fat Joe or other TS members have reached out during her eight-year bid, Remy said only Prospect and ex-member Cuban Link extended their hands.
"No, I haven't spoken to that guy in forever," Remy said, referring to Fat Joe. "Nobody [came to visit me from Terror Squad.] Not Joe, not any member from the group, not the deejay, not the manager, not the A&R, not anybody from the entire Squad -- sent a letter, call anybody from my team, talk to my son, anything. I don't think I'm allowed to say the words that I want to say to describe [how I feel.] Prospect might have called my brother and checked on me a couple of times and I can't really include Cuban Link because they kind of kicked him out the group but he reaches out."

She also revealed the support rap star 50 Cent and R&B diva Keyshia Cole have displayed.
"50 wrote me a great letter when I needed my appeal and I needed people to send letters and make sure that I have things set up so I could actually come home early," Remy added. "He was very cooperative to make sure that they knew everything was set up for me to come home [and] Keyshia Cole, that's my friend to the end, I'll never forget everything [she's done] to help me throughout the day. Those two was phenomenal -- and I'll never forget things they did for me. There's other people that did things that I'll never forget but those two -- pretty much [are helping me] come home early."

Last year, Fat Joe said he had no plans of reuniting with Remy and explained the impact of their mid-2000's fallout.
"I don't keep in contact with Remy," Joe revealed in an interview. "Me and Remy, we fell out. All I did for that girl was help her; make her rich; took her from the projects, single parent mom; put her on hit records; [and she] toured across the world with us. She was down with us, had a different car for every day of the week. When her album came out and it didn't do as good as she anticipated, she wanted to blame somebody. See, me, I don't run away. During my successes or my failures, I put it on me. You can't find an interview where I'm standing there talking about, 'Yo, this executive' [...] some people don't understand it's not an overnight success for everybody. It's a grind. It's happened for me. I make a great living -- a lot of artists make a great living. But, she, you know, she was getting real disrespectful with me and real disrespectful towards my family on the radio. I could never forgive Remy Martin. She really hurt my feelings." (XXL Mag)
In 2010, Remy talked about her distanced relationship with Joey Crack.
"Hopefully I can be home soon, like, before the summer," Remy told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom regarding her appeal last February. "If none of my appeals work and I had to do the most, probably another three years, a little bit over three years. I have eight [years], but you don't do the whole eight, you have to do about six and I've already done two...Never, never [has Joe reached out]. Not once -- he's not really a stay in touch type of dude, I think if he didn't think it would backfire that he might try it or something but I've got messages like 'How's she doing?' or 'I wanna go see her,' or 'I'm gonna go see her,' but as far as me personally getting anything, no. I'm good, my husband makes sure I'm good. I have real friends and real people..." ("Jenny Boom Boom TV")
Remy Ma hopes to leave jail as early as 2014.
