New York rapper Remy Ma‘s sister is making headlines this week for all of the wrong reasons. A new report claims Remeesha Alesia Blount is currently behind bars after getting arrested on a slew of criminal charges related to a recent North Carolina shooting.
Details on what happened last Friday (February 16) have emerged and claim Remeesha is connected to a near-fatal attack.
A woman was arrested Monday night on charges that she shot a woman Friday night in a bar parking lot on New Bern Avenue and fired bullets into a car that carried three other women. While the three women were fleeing in the ensuing panic, police said, the car hit the woman who had been shot. Remeesha Alesia Blount, 27, was arrested at an apartment complex on Hylton Drive shortly before midnight, records showed. (News Observer)

Recently, Ma talked about the importance of female unity in the music industry.
Today, Ma encourages collaboration and friendship rather than feuds, which have tainted the genre and with which Ma has personal experience. Without naming names, said Ma: “There’s strength in numbers. So if I’m doing good, and this girl here is doing good, people will take it more seriously. … We all bring something different to the table, and once people realize that, stop fighting each other, work together and help build each other up, we’ll grow even more.” (Variety)
In late January, Remy Ma rubbed elbows with Australian hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea.
