Ma 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. Ma made her first appearances in the music industry on Big Pun’s album Yeeeah Baby (under the name Remy Martin) on the tracks “Ms. Martin” and “You Was Wrong”.

Following the success of Lean Back, which garnered Ma a Grammy nomination, She released three singles from her debut album There’s Something About Remy: Based on a True Story; “Whuteva”, “Conceited” and “Feels So Good”. The album moved 37,000 units in its opening week and 158,000 units within the first year.

In 2008, Papoose and his cousin stated that he and 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 her in jail instead.
The wedding was called off for one day after Papoose allegedly attempted to smuggle a key into the jail on their wedding day in May 2008. 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. Ma provided updates posted via her official Twitter and MySpace pages.
In 2011, Ma’s music was featured and discussed in a documentary, Black Lifestyle in Japan, where she was praised for looking “stylish” and outlined as one of the most frequently listened to hip-hop musicians in Japan, among younger women.

Remy Ma Jail
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Grammy-nominated rapper Remy Ma was sentenced to eight years in prison on Tuesday for shooting and wounding an acquaintance after discovering money was missing from her purse after a night out in Manhattan.
In sentencing the rapper, criminal court judge Rena Uviller said Remy Ma, whose real name is Remy Smith, was “an extremely angry young woman whose anger is completely out of control.”
In March, a New York jury found Smith, nominated for a 2004 Grammy for her part in Terror Squad’s song “Lean Back,” guilty of assault, weapons possession and attempted coercion.
Smith’s lawyer, Ivan Fisher, called the shooting in the early hours of July 14, 2007, accidental and suggested the victim, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, was exaggerating the facts to win a large sum in a separate civil suit.
Smith believed her friend had taken $3,000 from her and that her gun went off as the pair struggled over her purse. The bullet pierced Barnes-Joseph’s colon and hit her rectum and sent her to a hospital for three weeks.
In appealing for leniency, Smith tearfully described how she had grown up in homeless shelters, “surrounded by poverty and drugs and violence and failure.”
“Remy Ma is not even close to who I really am. I’m not a thug,” she said. “I’m not a threat or a menace to society, and I still have so much to offer.”
But prosecutor Michael McIntosh said that Smith had a habit of traveling with a loaded weapon and said something like this “was bound to happen one day.”
The sentence was read aloud to a packed courtroom, including the rapper’s fiance, the rapper Papoose.
Smith and Papoose had planned to marry yesterday at New York’s Rikers Island jail, but the ceremony was canceled after a handcuff key was discovered on Papoose, officials said. After the sentencing, as Smith’s friends and family gathered outside the courtroom, Papoose had to be restrained as he lurched at one of the 15 court officers who had been stationed in the courtroom.
In a phone interview from prison last week on the satellite radio show with New York DJ Kay Slay, Smith said she was innocent and that there is a “whole conspiracy against rappers right now.”
“Don’t be mistaken by a jury that was not my peers. Like, there was not tan, dark brown, black, nothin’ on that jury,” she said.
Remy Ma Controversies and feuds
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. Foxy don’t get anything going on,” Remy Ma responded: “How do I feel about them? Stay wherever they at, don’t drop a song, don’t do anything, 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.” 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.
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 [my 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 [despite a scuffle] she had with ‘regular’ girls in a bathroom [over cutting in line].”
In late January 2005, Remy Ma reportedly punched Foxy Brown inside Island Def Jam/Universal offices, roughly a few days after Brown “subliminal” disses 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 disses Remy on a mixtape track (“We Hustlaz”) and allegedly ranted: “Who drives 645’s? That’s wack […] We sell records [in New York].
We don’t just get on the radio station and pop shit.” 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” In September 2006, Remy again joked about Brown’s hearing, addressing to a radio show: “…now Foxy suddenly got her hearing back, wanted to be the first to inform her that she’s wack and old.”
In July 2007, during her interview with Sub 0 Magazine, Foxy Brown dissed Remy Ma, stating: “When you lookin’ at Fox[y] and Kim and sayin’, ‘Damn y’ all make me wanna rap.’ Well shit, you disappointing me ’cause you sound horrible. You look horrible, ya sound horrible.
If it walks 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.
Now, I don’t do that, I’m a businesswoman baby.'” In December 2007, Remy spoke more candidly on her dispute with Brown. 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 [Foxy Brown] or when she came out with [Lil’] Kim, to Eve, me, Jacki-O, it even got to Latifah, like how do you [get in a fight] with Queen Latifah? Like, are you serious? This chick is a problem.” In 2017, Foxy released a new single called “Breaks Over”, a diss track aimed at Remy.

Remy Ma arrested on charges of punching ‘Love and Hip Hop’ castmate
A lawyer for the Grammy-nominated rapper says the rapper was at home nursing her 4-month-old daughter at the time of the alleged attack.
Grammy-nominated rapper Remy Ma was arrested Wednesday on charges of attacking a reality show castmate at a New York concert venue, a new round of legal trouble for a rapper still on parole from a 2007 shooting.
Her lawyer, Dawn Florio, called the new allegations false, saying the rapper was at home nursing her 4-month-old daughter at the time of the alleged attack.
“She’s going to fight this to the end,” Florio said.
The rapper herself declined to comment on the case after she was arraigned on misdemeanor assault and harassment charges and freed on $1,500 bail.
She left court hand-in-hand with her husband, the rapper Papoose. A friend and fellow hip hop artist Fat Joe also came to court to support her.
The 38-year-old rapper — known to the court as Remy Smith — turned herself in Wednesday to face accusations of punching “Love & Hip Hop New York” cast member Brittney Taylor in the face on April 16 at Irving Plaza, a downtown Manhattan music hall where Ma was performing for a benefit concert.
Taylor, who reported the incident the next day, suffered bruising to her right eye, authorities said.
“This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is — it is real life and not reality TV entertainment,” Taylor’s lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, said in a statement. He added that Taylor “has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities.”
Florio said that while Ma was at Irving Plaza that night, she was home at 9:30 p.m. when a criminal complaint says the attack allegedly happened. Many witnesses who were at the venue will vouch that Ma “had absolutely nothing to do with this incident,” Florio said.
Taylor “is a liar, and my client did not touch her,” Florio said.
Ma, whose Grammy nod came as part of the Terror Squad’s 2004 hit “Lean Back,” served six years in prison after being convicted of shooting an acquaintance outside a Manhattan nightclub in 2007. They were celebrating a birthday with friends in Manhattan’s trendy meatpacking district when Ma accused the other woman of stealing money from her pocketbook.
Ma’s defense said the gun went off accidentally during a struggle.
Released in 2014, she has three months left on parole, state records show. The new allegations spurred parole officers to tighten her parole conditions, including by requiring her to wear an ankle monitor and setting her curfew earlier, Florio said.
Ma is due back in court May 24. In the meantime, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Josh Hanshaft ordered her to stay away from Taylor.
Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Juan Maldonado said the two know each other from the show, but “they’re not friends.”
Ma joined the show in 2015.
