New York rapper Papoose and DJ Kay Slay have cleared the air on reports claiming incarcerated hip-hop artist Remy Ma has died.
Pap took to Twitter yesterday (July 16) and immediately nixed the death hype.
“Just left my wife on the visit 2day @ 330 she was and still is fine yall haters need 2 get a life @freeremyma,” he tweeted Monday (July 16).
“Google need 2 step they sh*t up and stop pushing fake stories @freeremyma” (Papoose’s Twitter)
Fellow New York hip-hop artist DJ Kay Slay also addressed the rumor.
“For all you weird mother f*ckers REMY MA DID NOT get stabbed,DID NOT get KILLED or even SCRATCHED in her cell! @Papooseonline just left her,” he tweeted.
“REMY MA IS ALIVE AND WELL!! REMY MA IS ALIVE AND WELL!! REMY MA IS ALIVE AND WELL!! REMY MA IS ALIVE AND WELL!! REMY MA IS ALIVE AND WELL!!” (DJ Kay Slay’s Twitter)
The former Terror Squad member called up New York radio station Hot 97 to reveal her well-being Monday night.
“I’m good. I heard I’m dead and all types of craziness,” Remy said in an interview with Funkmaster Flex. “People are crazy. They have nothing to do with their lives — I’m in New York state, I’m about 45 minutes from the BX. [When am I expecting to come home?] In about twenty-two and a half months. Yeah. It’s been almost five years I’ve been gone. … It’s almost over.” (Hot 97)
Death rumors on Remy surfaced online and even hit her Wikipedia page.
Is Remy Ma dead? Twitter exploded with death rumors that the Grammy-nominated rapper was stabbed to death in her prison cell after her Wikipedia page was amended to say that she died July 15, 2012. Remy Ma, one of the 1990s’ most beloved female rappers, was simply the latest victim of an online death hoax, as her Wikipedia has since been changed back to reflect the fact that she did not actually pass away on Sunday.
