Remy Ma Turns Down Battle Offer, Wants Her Own Battle Rap Platform

Remy Ma says she turned down a six-figure offer to battle after being released from prison earlier this month.

After serving a six-year sentence in state prison for assault charges stemming from a shooting in 2008, Remy Ma was released earlier this month. The rapper, a former Terror Squad member and Grammy-nominee, spoke about her interest in battle rap in a new interview withTheHomeOfHipHop247 just weeks after her release.

When asked about her post-prison daily life, Remy said she’s been watching plenty of battles and even turned down a six-figure offer to battle.

“I had a ball just surfing through the TV channels and finding all these cool female rap battles,” she said. “That’s what I spend a lot of my time doing when I’m not watching the On Demand shows. I’m on YouTube on my Smart TV, [there are rappers] that are so hungry and have that fire in them and spitting that real rap.”

Addressing the possibility of entering the ring herself, Remy admitted to receiving serious offers but put aside the idea nonetheless.

“No, I’m actually not,” she said. “I had a crazy offer that was in the six figure area to do such. That’s not really where I’m at right now in my career. I believe I could do it if I wanted to, that’s what I do. But that’s not what I want to do. I like seeing people that haven’t had the chance to make it as far as I have or even as far as I would like to be one day get a chance to showcase their art and their creativity. Plus, sometimes, I think it would be kind of unfair. Unless I’m going against somebody that’s in the same realm as me, that already has a deal and is out there in the mainstream. For me to go in there and go against somebody that’s coming up, I think that’s unfair.”

Still, Remy did express a personal interest in the culture from a different angle.

“If I had the platform where I could start my own and have more chicks come in and not just girls, guys too,” she said. “Some of the girls that I’ve seen, they’re better than most of these guys. [We could] set it up where it’s just a rap battle, where it’s no girl version or the guy version. If you’re a rapper you’re a rapper. That’s it, that’s all. If you nice with it, you could stand toe-to-toe with anybody regardless of their gender. I would like to actually start my own thing one day, I think that would be cool if I had to connect myself in some form or another to that battle situation.”

    The presidential debate isn’t going to talk about things that are suppose to be handled by the Governors and Mayors of your state or city, that’s not their level. You said some true stuff but you also mentioned educating the youth and that the states level.
