Remy Ma Puts Hip-Hop On Notice
Revealing her card with some of the best spitters in female battle rap, Remy sent a message to the Hip-Hop community:
“It has always been a male dominated industry,” she began. “Not anymore. In 2020 women have to be running Hip-Hop, both in front and behind the scenes…”
She continued, describing what separates these women from the industry standard. “But there’s a different breed of female rapper that’s about to take over the world. This type of emcee…she pushes her own pen. She uses lyricism, punches double and triple entendres, metaphors, similes, angles, schemes. It can also get very personal. There’s no fancy production or no sexy choreography to hide behind…just pure talent and skill. “
Remy Ma concluded with: “This is rap in its purest form. I present to you, Chrome 23. A new female battle rap league, for women supporting women and run by women pushing the culture forward equally.”
Battle rap media outlet OTFMZ shared a behind the scenes video of Remy Ma partying with the ladies of Chrome 23.
