Bronx rapper Remy Ma and her husband Papoose have joined the cast of Love & Hip Hop, Season 6. Remy is known for saying what she feels and doing what she wants — whenever she wants. One year ago, Remy was released from prison after serving six-and-a-half years for shooting a woman in the stomach. They were arguing over missing money. (The victim survived – otherwises Remy would still be in jail.)
Remy Ma (born Reminisce Smith) says she started writing poetry before songs. When she started to read her poems to beats, guys in the neighborhood would put money behind her to rap against other guys in the neighborhood. When she met rapper Big Pun and he put her on his album, her world changed. Before prison Remy Ma was a member of Fat Joe’s Terror Squad. Now she’s working on new music and planning the wedding she always wanted. (She and Papoose married when she was in jail.) Love & Hip Hop airs Mondays at 8pm and 10pm on VH1.
