Rapper Remy Ma was sentenced to 8 years in prison for shooting her former friend. We had no idea Papoose was that sprung on Remy Ma because he plead with the court for them to lock him up too. This guy is off in a bad way. We already told you about Papoose's foolishness when he tried to smuggle a handcuff key into Rikers Island prison to set his lady love free. These two are a perfect match for each other. SMH. Watch Remy Ma talk about how she wants to smack some bitches.
After the sentencing, Smith's fiancee, Brooklyn rapper Papoose, lashed out against Joseph screaming "All you want is money!" in a hallway outside the court room. "Lock me up! Lock me up!" he then shouted to court officers, who escorted him out of the courthouse. Papoose was sanctioned by Rikers Island officials yesterday after he attempted to give Remy a skeleton key capable of opening handcuffs. He was banned from visiting Remy for six months. Remy Ma's lawyer, Ivan Fisher, denies that the key could be used to unlock handcuffs and says the two still plan to wed after the bride-to-be's transfer to an upstate prison. source
Now she's sorry.
Whimpering for mercy, bad-girl rapper Remy Ma was sentenced today to 8 years in prison after tearfully apologizing to the ex-friend she shot in the gut in a beef over some money.
Uviller promptly slammed the 27-year-old rapper - whose real name is Remy Smith - with an 8-year sentence for shooting Makeda Barnes-Joseph last July following a night of drinking in the Meatpacking District.
Calling Smith an "extremely angry woman," Uviller pointed to Smith's violent past and her unwillingness to apologize until it was time to face the music.
"She does not have real remorse for her actions, viewing herself in some way as a victim," Uviller said.
Uviller's sentence, which could have put Smith behind bars for up to 25 years, set off fits of crying in a courtroom packed with supporters that included her fiance, rapper Papoose. He and Smith were set to get hitched at Rikers Island Monday until Papoose showed up at the jail with a handcuff key.
A stunned Papoose stood silently in a circle of Remy Ma's pals after she was packed off to prison.
"My job, my child, my freedom, it's all been stripped from me," cried the rapper, who said her thuggish image was nothing more than a "music industry creation, a facade for entertainment."
Instead, Remy Ma's defense lawyer tried to portray her as a loving single mom and former spelling bee champion whose lyrics provide inspiration to the downtrodden.
"This is a woman whose life is very much worth saving," said lawyer Ivan Fisher.
In a letter read aloud to the court, Barnes-Joseph wrote that "never in a million years" did she think she would be shot by her friend, or that the friend would then proclaim her innocence in interviews and a criminal trial.
"I learned to forgive Ms. Smith, but the question is how do I forget," Barnes-Joseph wrote. "She is making it so hard for me to do so."
The 24-year-old shooting victim has undergone surgeries and still suffers numbness in her legs.
"I will always be the girl they whisper about," she wrote. "I will always be the girl who got shot by Remy." source
