Update: Remy Ma’s release has been temporarily delayed, thanks to a phone call violation.
After serving a six-year prison sentence, Bronx rapper Remy Ma was released on Thursday (July 31).
Hot 97′s morning show reported that the former Terror Squad rapper was released from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in New York, around 8 a.m. on Thursday morning. Remy was greeted by her husband Papoose, in addition to her manager and other members of her entourage.
Last week she phoned in to Angie Martinez’s Power 105 show and revealed that she was excited to get back to work. She even gave some props to Nicki Minaj for all her recent success.
“Nick has always been a supporter and vice versa,” Remy said. “I like what she does. She’s done wonderful things for females, but I just wish there was more of them. I don’t know what they’re doing; they’re letting these guys take over.”
Remy was sentenced to eight years in prison on assault charges back in 2008 for shooting another woman, but she was able to serve a shorter sentence.
