Incarcerated rapper Remy Ma has discussed her current relationship with former collaborator Fat Joe and how she hopes to be released soon.
Despite serving an eight year sentence on a felony gun charge, Remy is hoping an appeal sends her home by summer 2010.
“Hopefully I can be home soon, like, before the summer,” Remy told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom regarding her appeal. “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”)
Although Joe and Remy had a falling out around 2005, the Terror Squad leader gave his regards to the rapper last fall.
“She’s just, you know, stay strong because I don’t wish that on nobody,” Joe said in an interview. “Not [even] on my worst enemy. She got a kid and family who misses her so I can, that’s, that’s, you know, I wish her the best. She can come home or whatever the case may be. You know, we rockin’ on.” (Global Grind TV)
Last summer, Remy updated fans via a blog posting.
“I really miss everything but I especially can’t wait to get back in the studio and onstage again, I’ve been writing like crazy,” she wrote in a blog entry. “First off I’d like to send love to C-Murder, his family and children…Some people are aware, but I realize that a lot of people don’t know that I have a son. He just turned 9 years old and I was able to celebrate his birthday with him and Pap, they stayed with me for 5 days and 4 nights. We had so much fun. I cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday, I baked cookies, cakes, and banana pudding. We watched movies, played board games and took a lot of pictures…I just want to say that I so love the ‘Wendy Williams Show.’ I try to watch it everyday. I love watching the videos that are sent in of little kids saying ‘How You Doin?’ I couldn’t pay my son to do that! I have to go on her show though when I get home.” (Global Grind)
She was given an eight-year sentence in May 2008.
The former Terror Squad member turned herself in to New York police in July 2007 for the shooting of Makeda Barnes-Joseph outside a nightclub. Remy was later sentenced to an eight year bid last May and is currently held behind bars at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in Bedford Hills. (TMZ)
