Here's a radio interview with Remy Ma and the victim talking about the 8 year prison verdict. The victim is talking to Miss Jones on HOT 97. She says Remy Ma Shot Me for $3,000 dollars. Remy Ma is saying she's not sorry and didn't shoot anybody. The victim says she was shot in the stomach but Remy Ma claims she shot her friend accidentally and it was only a flesh wound. Remy Martin is talking some nonsense.
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
