Remy Ma Talks Pressure To Succeed & Division In Female Rap (VIDEO)

Remy made it clear even if her years away in prison diminished her appeal to a greater audience today that would not prevent her from continuing to record music.

“You can’t live your life based on what everybody else thinks, because everyone’s gonna have a different opinion. So, I’m gonna do what I feel is right for me, and if I’m not received as well as I would like to be that’s not gonna change me from making music,” explained Remy. “I don’t make music because I do it for the money. If I never had another record deal in life, I would still write music, because that’s in me. That’s what I do.”

The conversation then turned to other female rap stars. While photos of Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea were posted on a screen behind her, Remy shared her thoughts on the divide amongst some women in Hip Hop.

“I think sometimes we allow as females – we allow people to come in and say, ‘You have to go at her,’ ‘She’s trying to be like you,’ or ‘She’s trying to take your spot,’ instead of just embracing each other,” said Remy. “I feel like if we ignore what other people say – I listen to what people say in comments like ‘You need to go at this person. You need to crush this person.’ Nah, I’m happy to see any female – any black, young individual or minority doing well. I’d do anything to help that.”

    Right now there’s only two female rappers as far as the public Remy wants to make music for are concerned. Her options are limited. Either try to make similar pop music like them or start with the insults to build some interest.

    So she is saying because they are female, other females should support them? Nevermind how much they suck? If she isnt in it for the money, why is she trying to make songs with such gimmicky artists with no talent? Make songs with the millions of underground female rappers with skills then Remy. Making a song with Iggy will only solidify the fact that female rappers are just jokes.

      Notice she said she wants to support all black and minority female rappers.

      Iggy is not a rapper, black or a minority I guess u right she wants that Pop look… its not bad move as she would be the better rapper on the song.

      • ladynamor

        Not a good look at all. Shes talking out of both sides of her face. Either sell out or not, period. And lets be clear here, We are listening to a female talk about female unity who shot another female. SMH

        Lol you got a point

    Ma can still get it.

    She already got more buzz than Pap has had his whole career. LOL

    She def should not go at Nicki…. that would be a nail in the coffin right now.
    She gotta put in work then when Nicki is less popular, start the “takeover” for that crown.

    I think she should stay indie and try and get a tour with one of the RNB chicks – like Keisha Cole or Sza…. someone who hot but not that hot – so she can get that bread up.

    If she 1) signs for a MMG, Young Money, We the Worst or any of these “new age” labels or 2) stands to close to any male rapper – she gona lose.

    Female rappers don’t blow . Don’t be fake ya’ll . They come out with albums they last a while but they don’t blow . Especially these days if you ain’t got no booty people ain’t tripping . Sad but true .
