Remy Ma

After linking with Fat Joe's Terror Squad and delivering a standout verse on the inescapable hit "Lean Back," Remy Ma was poised for big things. In 2006, she released her well-received debut, There's Something About Remy: Based on a True Story. In 2008, she was convicted on multiple counts and has been in prison since, scheduled to be released in 2015.
