This afternoon Remy Ma was sentenced to eight years in jail for shooting Makeda-Barnes Joseph in the stomach.
When the verdict was read, Remy’s soon-to-be-husband, Papoose went wild in the courtroom. He screamed, “Get the f-ck off me. F-ck ya’ll. F-ck jail.” Friends tried to restrain him and court officers told him to keep it moving as he middle-fingered the legal system.. “I don’t care. Lock me up. Lock me up. Take me to jail. Arrest me. It’s all about money.”
Two weeks ago, Remy Ma called DJ Kay Slay’s radio show in good spirits, saying she was innocent and basically a victim, because she didn’t have the kind of money it takes to put up a true defense in court.more..
Next Tuesday, Remy Ma will stand before a Manhattan judge to find out how many years, months, or days (What up, Mike) she will spend behind bars. Facing charges of shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the stomach during a dispute over money, a jury found Remy Ma guilty of first-degree assault, attempted coercion, and criminal possession of a weapon. She faces 5 - 25 years in jail.
That is not Foxy Brown or Lil Kim, stand in the corner for a month or two, time. That’s Shyne, Slick Rick, your career is finito, time.
Remy Ma called Kay Slay’s radio show last Wednesday (rebroadcast last night.) She stuck to her belief that she wasn’t guilty. Repeatedly saying she’s “forever innocent” and claimed her conviction was a result of influential rappers being targeted by the system.
She talked about being locked down at Rikers for 23 hours a day and “eating mad macaroni.”
This afternoon, Remy Ma was found guilty of two counts of first-degree assault, attempted coercion, and criminal possession of a weapon. As the verdict was read, Remy quietly wiped tears from her face - seemingly in shock. After court officers took her away in handcuffs, she was heard crying loudly in the hallway, screaming, “Oh my, God. Oh my, God.”
Some of Remy’s supporters in the courtroom also cried, and there was a slight disturbance between them and Makeda-Barnes people. Makeda is Remy’s ex-friend/victim in the incident, she was all smiles, “I’m so happy. Justice was served.”
At her April 23rd sentencing, Remy faces 5-25 years in prison.more..
Yesterday a video clip surfaced of this girl talking about having intimate moments with Remy Ma. A possible stand-in trigger clicker for Snoop, the unnamed female brought her smoky memories of Remy to the Tube.. “Straight off, I used to chill with her, smoke with her, drink with her, pop bottles.. burn els and all that. I dead ass know her. No Lying. This is not a stunt. I dead ass had relations with her and all that. Ate the box! You feel me?.. It’s whatever though.”
Toward the end of the clip she speed dials Remy Ma on her cell, or who she claimed to be Remy Ma. I’m not that familiar with Remy’s voice to say if it was her or not, but this girl’s Remy sounds too young. Either way, the conversation was brief - there is a writers strike.more..
In their latest issue XXL talked to Remy Ma. Remy awaits trial on charges of the attempted murder of her ‘friend’ Makeda-Barnes Joseph. While she’s not a believer in the all publicity is good publicity philosophy, “So far, it’s all f*ckin’ bad,” said Remy, she felt no need to keep quiet on anything XXL asked her.
“I had just met that girl a year ago. But I treat all my friends how I would want them to treat me. And that’s why it’s crazy to be in a situation where somebody I consider my friend is talking crazy about me.. They are very dear. And I’m usually a very good judge of character… Like, what the fuck did I miss?”more..
The alleged victim of Remy Ma’s twitchy finger, and former friend, Makeda Barnes-Joseph recently spoke to the NY Daily News about Remy Ma and because of events leading to her new home on Riker’s island, Foxy Brown.. “They feel that they can do whatever they want and get away with it,” said Makeda. “They think that because they’re rappers that they need to make a name for themselves. It’s ridiculous, the stupid things she [Foxy Brown] is doing.”
“Because they’re hard-core female rappers, they [think they] have to live up to what they say in their raps.”
Umm, was she thinking that the night she was hanging out with a ‘hardcore female rapper?’more..
Unlike Foxy Brown for the time being Remy Ma is free to roam the streets of New York. The video for her mixtape single “Shesus Khryst” was released today. She’s an independent artist but it looks like some money was spent on production. Remy already had a buzz going with the blonde-streaked, half-naked, female Christ depiction, now she’s got the reputation for having a loose trigger finger.
Look at her and tell me you don’t wonder where she’s hiding IT.
