Rumors have been swirling that Remy Ma, real name Reminisce Smith, was finally out of prison after serving eight years for two charges of assault. However, it appears that the rapper’s release from prison has been delayed.
The rapper shot her friend, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, two times during a scuffle in a car in 2008 and was due to be released on Thursday, July 31, after completing six years of her sentence at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in New York, MTV reports.
It was believed that Remy was met at the correctional facility this morning by her husband Papoose, in addition to her manager and other members of her entourage. However, new reports state that the rapper’s release has now been postponed due to a phone call violation.
Guess the “Feel So Good” hit maker will have to wait even longer now before she can get back to work, which she previously told Angie Martinez’s Power 105 show, via a phone call, that she was really excited to do.
“Nicki [Minaj] has always been a supporter and vice versa,” she 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.”
However, it was perhaps that very phone call that is keeping Remy in prison.
“Remy Smith’s tentative release date of July 31 was postponed due to a misbehavior report involving a July 21 incident for phone violations, particularly third-party calling,” Linda Foglia, a public information officer for the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, told MTV News.
Of course, there’s no way to know for sure if that’s the reason, but one thing is certain: the rapper will be punished for this incident and her release date has been delayed.
