All her loyal fans have been screaming #FreeRemy for quite some time now ever since she got bagged up on an assault charge, but on July 30th of this year, the femcee will be out of prison and back home! Billboard caught up with Remy to chop it up about a bunch of things for their new “31 Females Who Changed Hip-Hop” feature. She spoke on her new positive outlook on life, new music in the works, possibly doing reality TV and even deading all the beef with former Terror Squad boss Fat Joe. See what she had to say below.
On her new positive outlook:
“I have a new outlook on a lot of things. I’m ready to see the world with these new pair of eyes of mine. Everyone says I’m not missing anything but I think they’re just saying that so I don’t feel bad. I’m excited to get back into the game and make it a little bit more interesting.”
On ending beef with Fat Joe:
“I just recently spoke to him and we had a wonderful conversation. It started off a little awkward. [Laughs] We’re both like, ‘Just say what you want to say.’ We were both holding on to our egos. ‘Well what do you want to say?’ ‘No what do you want to say?’ We finally let it go. We ended up talking about things I want to do when I get home. He said, ‘I still think you’re the dopest female rapper ever.’ I’m like, ‘Really?!’ [Laughs] When you put egos and pride aside, and be the real people that you are it works out… I told him that when I do go home I’m going to make it my business that we talk more.”
On reality television:
“That’s when reality shows weren’t as ratchet as they are now. I’ve been getting some calls about it but I’m like, ‘I’m good.’ I am going to be honest, I’m scared of reality TV. That’s one thing that’s not on my list to do when I get out. Once I have my music solidified, then I’ll consider reality TV.”
