Remy Ma Talks Being Depressed Behind Bars And Having Papoose By Her Side

August 26, 2014  |  

It’s been a long journey for Bronx rapper Remy Ma to come home. In May 2008 she went to prison for six years following a shooting incident and that same month, she married her husband, fellow rapper Papoose, while incarcerated. Having someone support her all these years is what kept Remy Ma going, she told us in a recent interview as she talked about being so depressed sometimes she didn’t even feel like writing rhymes or talking to anyone. Remy also talked about other women she encountered in the Bedford Hills maximum security facility where she was housed who had family members and friends who wouldn’t even make the 45-minute trip from the city to visit them behind bars and how much the support of her mom, husband, and even her son meant to her.

Check out the video above to hear what Remy Ma has to say about life in front of the bars and rumors she’s joining reality TV. What do you think?

    Remy is actually really pretty and her husband Papoose is cute! They are both great rappers, I just hope they get the exposure they deserve. People need to start respecting lyrics more. It’s so much trash rap in mainstream right now and it’s killing me.
