The Bronx natives took to the stage midway through the show ― following performances from Ayo Jay, Young M.A, Desiigner and Wiz Khalifa.

The crowd erupted in cheers as the MC graced the stage.  Flanked by her dancers clad in all black, Remy commanded attention. Her incredible stage presence vibrated through the arena, showing that her stint in prison had done nothing to diminish her skills or the dedication from fans.

On all accounts, Remy Ma was on top of the world, a Grammy nominated rapper, the lone female of Terror Squad (the group put together by rapper Fat Joe), she still remains only one of four female rappers to ever have a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Flash forward eight years later and Remy Ma is ready for a coming back. Earlier this year it was announced that the rapper and her husband Papoose would be joining the popular VH1 show, Love & Hip Hop.

Shayne Lee: Lil Wayne, Shakespeare, and Artistic Freedom
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Rap superstar Lil Wayne offended many people when he recently resurrected the name and image of the slain teenager whose brutal beating and death in Mississippi sparked fervent waves of Civil Rights protest in 1955. "I beat the p--- up like Emmett Till," Lil Wayne audaciously uttered on "Karate Chop (Remix)," spawning a vortex of criticism from scholars, intellectuals, artists, and activists for conjuring up a memory long associated with the pain and terrorism of Southern racism. Emmett Till's family and music icon Stevie Wonder issued public rebukes, indicting the rapper for breaching inviolable terrain. Guilty as charged, Lil Wayne's suggestive simile enlists him in a long lineage of artistic line-crossing with roots extending way back to biblical days when an exasperated lyricist wished vicious deaths upon Babylonian infants (Psalm 137:8-9). Like Lil Wayne and the biblical psalmist, the plays of William Shakespeare often crossed the line. An old man's eyes ...

Malik Yusef: Last Night DJ Saved My Life
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
We are all led through life by a soundtrack -- whether it's music made in struggle, such as "Strange Fruit" by Billie Holiday, "What's Going On " by Marvin Gaye, or the use of songs to help navigate the Underground Railroad. We are our music. Yet, not often mentioned is how much of our "Musical Dividends " are ending up invested in the wrong places -- namely the prison system. This great Deduction in Sound has been ongoing since the early '90s. Steady B, C-Murder, Ja-Rule, Remy Ma, lil Boosie, Tru-life, Queen Pen, Young Turk, and even Max B are just an example of a few. These situations lower the volume of our voices, and limit what my man D J 3rd eye likes to call our "Hood Reporters" ability to keep us informed. I've learned first hand, (and continue to witness ) that prison isn't the final period on anyone's life unless you allow it to be. I recently asked DJ 3rd eye (aka Darrell Jones) if I could move beyond the piecemeal versions of who he is. Normally, he says "just ...

    More Details Hide Details Remy Ma and sister Kristin Devereaux grew up in Castle Hill Projects in the Bronx, New York, and often saw the consequences and terrors of her family's drug abuse with her own eyes. She was forced to take care of her little brothers and sisters at a young age and retreated from her home issues by writing poetry. Her reputation quickly grew around the Bronx and word eventually got to the late MC Big Pun of her and her work. After one meeting and a freestyle session, Pun immediately became her mentor.

  • 2008
    Age 26
    Remy married her fiancee, rapper Papoose, while incarcerated in May 2008.
    More Details Hide Details Smith wrote a letter to her fans via Global Grind in Late 2009 stating "I really miss everything but I especially can't wait to get back in the studio and touring again, I've been writing like crazy," she wrote in a blog entry. "First off I'd like to send love to C-Murder, his family and children Some people are aware, but I realize that a lot of people don't know that I have a son. He just turned 9 years old and I was able to celebrate his birthday with him and Pap, they stayed with me for 5 days and 4 nights. We had so much fun. I cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I baked cookies, cakes, and banana pudding. We watched movies, played board games and took a lot of pictures I just want to say that I so love the 'Wendy Williams Show.' I try to watch it. I love watching the videos that are sent in of little kids saying 'How You Doin?' I couldn't pay my son to do that!
    In 2008, Papoose and his cousin stated that he and Remy Ma were to be married, but due to Ma's impending prison sentence of potentially up to 15–25 years, the couple had changed their plans and intended to marry in her jail instead. Papoose whiled off in jail, but the wedding was called off for one day after he allegedly attempted to smuggle a key into the jail on their wedding day in May 2008.
    More Details Hide Details After the incident, Ma married Papoose the next day inside the courtroom right before sentencing and he was barred from visiting her for six months. Since then, they had conjugal visits every six weeks. Remy provided updates posted via her official Twitter and MySpace pages.
  • 2007
    Age 25
    Smith was later charged with witness tampering and assault after an August 2007 incident in which she was accused of causing several male friends to attack a witness's boyfriend.
    More Details Hide Details On March 27, 2008, Smith was convicted of assault, illegal weapon possession and attempted coercion in connection with these charges. She was immediately taken into custody pending sentencing scheduled for May 13. She was acquitted of witness tampering and gang assault, charges which involved the purported intimidation of the boyfriend of a witness. At her sentencing, the judge noted her disregard for the victim following the shooting—commenting that the rapper rifled through the victim's purse looking for the alleged stolen money, as Barnes-Joseph sat seriously wounded in the car. Smith then exited the vehicle, jumped into a waiting car and drove off, leaving Barnes-Joseph bleeding in the front seat. No money was found in Barnes-Joseph's purse. The shooting caused Barnes-Joseph to undergo several surgeries. Allegedly, she still experiences numbness in both legs and digestive problems as a result of the damage the bullet did to her intestines. In 2007, Barnes-Joseph filed an $80 million civil lawsuit against Smith for damages, along with pain and suffering.
    On December 18, 2007, a viral video surfaced via the internet featuring an alleged Nicki Minaj dressed in male attire dissing Remy Ma and admitting to having a previous sexual relationship with the rapper by remarking: "I used to date her, straight off.
    More Details Hide Details This is not a stunt I just told you, Ma ate the box." Roughly three years following the video's release, Remy Ma confirmed in an interview that she had "doubts" that the woman in the video was actually Nicki Minaj and explained that she was not gay and never dated Minaj. Since 2011, Remy Ma has stated that she supports Nicki Minaj and her success, but has added that she is going to be "a problem" to Minaj once she would be released from prison.
    Disagreements between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj originated in 2007, when Remy took note of Minaj's freestyle record, nicknamed "Dirty Money", from her mixtape Playtime Is Over (2007).
    More Details Hide Details In the record, Minaj recites: "Tell that bitch with the crown to run it like Chris Brown/she won three rounds, I'ma need a hundred thou/like 'Chinatown' — bitches better bow down/oh you ain’t know, betcha bitches know now/fuck I got a gun — let her know that I’m the one". When the two encountered each other at an industry party, Remy asked Minaj who she was dissing in the song. Nicki Minaj reportedly never confirmed or denied that the song was about Remy, however Remy Ma remarked in a 2010 interview, "To this day I still feel like song is a stab at me; I'm gonna Minaj back for that one".
    Naw, I don't do that, I'm a business woman baby.'" In December 2007, Remy spoke more candidly on her dispute with Brown.
    More Details Hide Details She confirmed that although she disliked Brown as a person, she admitted she liked Brown's music and added that she was influenced by her and Lil' Kim. Remy later concluded her take on the feud by giving a shout-out to Brown's rival Jacki-O and stating, "If you look at every female that came out after Brown or when she came out with Lil' Kim, to Eve, me, Jacki-O, it even got to Latifah, like how do you in a fight with Queen Latifah? Like, are you serious? This chick is a problem." The feud has since dissolved as of 2016.
    In July 2007, during her interview with Sub Magazine, Foxy Brown dissed Remy Ma, stating: "When you lookin' at Foxy and Kim and sayin', 'Damn y'all make me wanna rap.'
    More Details Hide Details Well shit you disappointing me 'cause you sound horrible. You look horrible, ya sound horrible. If it walk like somethin', talk like somethin', act like somethin', then it is somethin'." Brown also dissed Remy's recollection of their disagreement over the rap battle, addressing: "Some of these female rappers have the wrong approach, they wanna be my friend. And instead of approaching me like, 'Hey, how you doing', another chick Remy, 'Yo, what up with that battle?' And I'm lookin' at her like, 'You bum ass.
  • 2006
    Age 24
    In September 2006, Remy again joked about Brown's hearing, addressing to a radio show: " now Foxy suddenly got her hearing back, I wanted to be the first to inform her that she's wack and old."
    More Details Hide Details
    In February 2006, Remy Ma released a freestyle record ("Most Anticipated") that contained "slick comments" about Brown's hearing problem, and stated that she didn't care if it was offensive because "it was just good punchlines".
    More Details Hide Details
    Her debut solo album, There's Something About Remy: Based on a True Story, was released on February 7, 2006.
    More Details Hide Details She has won two Vibe awards, two Source awards, an ASCAP pop award and a BET award for "Best Female Hip Hop", as well as two other nominations. Remy cites Big Punisher and Roxanne Shante as her biggest influences. Smith served a six-year jail term of her eight-year sentence in the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women for shooting Makeeda Barnes-Joseph in the abdomen over a missing sum of $1,000.
  • 2005
    Age 23
    In late January 2005, Remy Ma reportedly punched Foxy Brown inside Island Def Jam/Universal offices, roughly a few days after Brown "subliminally" dissed Remy during a venue at Jay-Z's Best of Both Worlds Tour and allegedly dissed her during a Hot 97 interview segment with DJ Clue, where Brown dissed Remy on a mixtape track ("We Hustlaz") and allegedly ranted: "Who drives 645's?
    More Details Hide Details That's wack We sell records New York. We don't just get on the radio station and pop shit."
  • 2004
    Age 22
    In September 2004, Remy recalled that after a rap battle with Lady Luck at Fight Klub, her refusal to "show some type of seniority or respect" to Brown became one of the building blocks in the feud.
    More Details Hide Details Remy also recalled that during the incident the two were arguing over a future rap battle, where Brown declined and allegedly stated, "What? A battle? That's for beginners. We sell records in Brooklyn!" Remy dissed the rapper, responding, "When the last time you sold a record? Get the fuck out of here I'd rather be a beginner that's on fire than be a washed-up veteran. Are you fucking serious? Don't try to degrade what I do." Remy additionally revealed that a prize of over $200,000 was offered to whoever won the rap battle. Another building block to the feud was Remy's recollection of her and Brown coincidentally being interviewed at the same events either "before or after" each other, where she would catch wind of Brown "subliminally" dissing her by making statements like: "I've been doing this for years. These new chicks, they're not on level." In another event, specifically a Baby Phat after-party, Foxy Brown intentionally tried to bump into Remy. The occurrence resulted in strands of Brown's weave getting caught in Remy's bracelet, causing Remy to snatch her wrist back and yank out the strands. Remy recalled that Brown in response "kept it moving a scuffle she had with 'regular' girls in a bathroom cutting in line."
    A beef between Remy Ma and Foxy Brown originated in August 2004, when an interviewer noted to Remy: "Right now, it’s a lack of female rappers in the game.
    More Details Hide Details Foxy don't got anything going on," Remy Ma responded: "How do I feel about them? Stay wherever they at, don't drop a song, don't do nothing, let me be the only one. I'm having so much fun. I hope they never come out Nah, I wish everyone the best of luck. Just don’t drop when I drop. That’s all I got to say. Matter of fact, just don’t drop at all. It’ll even be better."
