Remy Ma fails with Appeal in 2007 Shooting Case

By 2006, Remy Ma had hit a peak in her career, as she was holding Terror Squad down. She was the only female rapper constantly releasing music. However, behind the scenes, things were not looking good for her. Fat Joe, the Terror Squad boss, was having issues with her.

The issues could not be resolved and Fat Joe had her kicked off the Terror Squad label. One clause in the contract said she can sign with any label she wants to, except for G-Unit. Remy Ma took offense to this, because Fat Joe recorded with anyone he wanted to.

At the time, Remy Ma and Lil' Kim were feuding with each other and Fat Joe still worked with her. Soon, Remy Ma had bigger issues than rap beef. Remy was soon in the middle of a shooting case in New York City. In 2007, she shot her friend when she discovered the friend had stolen $3,000 worth of jewelry from her.

Remy Ma has been serving an eight year prison sentence, but her legal team appealed. Their claim was that the jury was not properly informed before rendering a verdict. The appeal has reportedly been denied by the judge, meaning Remy Ma will continue to serve her time behind bars. In 2008, Fat Joe put the beef aside and offered his deepest sympathies to both Remy Ma and her family. She accepted his sympathies and thanked him, but they will remain estranged.
