BREAKING NEWS: Remy Ma Gets 8 Years
Afterwards Papose throws a tantrum in the Courtroom.
Rapper Remy Ma was sentenced to eight years in prison today by a Manhattan Supreme Court judge for shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the stomach after the two argued over money after leaving a party.
According to XXL she caught five years on weapons charges and three joints on coercion. The sentences will run concurrently for a total of eight years.Â I’m sure her and her boo, Papoose’s stunt yesterday didn’t help with leniency in her sentencing.Â
â€œIâ€™m not a thug,â€ Remy Ma told the judge. â€œIâ€™m not a hardcore anything, I have feelings. Iâ€™m a wife, mother, daughter, big sister.â€Â Ahhhhh, you shotÂ your homegirl Remy.Â Are we supposed to feel like you were just doing your family duty?
And if the entire ordeal wasn’t hood enough supporters in the court room were decked out in red and white T-shirts with the words â€œFree Remyâ€ across the front.Â Â You can’t make this up.Â It’s like VH1 Reality TV without the TV.Â She makes Foxy Brown look like a alter girl.
After the verdict Papoose, the rapperâ€™s fiance, held a stoic look on his face as he left the court room but later got into beef with court officers.Â He could be heard saying â€œFuck jail,â€ as he was escorted out. â€œFuck jail, lock me up. I donâ€™t care, yâ€™all just want money. She didnâ€™tâ€™ do nothing.â€Â Ahhhh yes…more ghetto fabulousity for your ass. Â
Although the DA wanted Remy to do 13 years judge settled on eight. According to the report however her attorney and management said they were happy with the judgeâ€™s leniency but intend to appeal the sentencing.
