Video After The Jump
Remy Ma was recently released from prison after serving six years. BET caught up with the Bronx, New York native to find out who was there for her when she needed help.
The first two names that popped into Remy's head were Keyshia Cole and 50 Cent.
“When I needed letters for my appeal,” Remy said. “Saying that if in fact I was released I would have a job and this is how I would stay out of trouble and reintegrate into society. 50 Cent had no problem not once, but twice signing letters saying that ‘She would definitely have somewhere to work.’ And it wasn’t a delay. I didn’t feel like I had to chase anybody around…I think they genuinely felt for my situation. They really understood that not only was—Like they didn’t look at me as Remy Ma the rapper. I was Remy and ‘Whatever you need I got you.’ And I never felt like anybody I was talking to was fake or just saying it because I was on the phone with them. Cause for what? They didn’t have to.”
Remy also talked about liking the music of Drake and Meek Mill, in addition to being proud of the number of female lyricists she's discovered while watching battle rap.
