During a recent sit down with The Breakfast Club, Remy talked at great length about her forthcoming album Seven Winters, Six Summers, which was inspired by her six-year prison stint at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. Naturally, the topic of Meek's seemingly endless legal woes were brought into the conversation and Remy shared her perspective on the broken justice system.
“Take me for instance, I did all the years that I did. But after you got out, I still have five years – not parole, no. If I was on parole, I would’ve been off a year, two years ago because it only goes as long as your sentence,” she said. “What they’re doing now, they put this post-release provision on top of it where, for three years or five years or however many years afterward, you can’t do nothing. I literally have a curfew still. I have a curfew of 12:30 every day until 2019 and I got out of prison in 2014.”
As previously reported, Meek began his two- to four-year prison sentence on Wednesday (Nov. 8) after reportedly failing a drug test and sidestepping the procedure for notifying the court of his travel itinerary, ultimately violating his probation.
“They set it up so that you go back," the "All The Way Up" rapper continued. "And it’s sad when you’re a celebrity. It’s even worse because people are paying attention…It’s hard sometimes when you’re trying to be good and you’re trying to do the right thing. It’s like, no matter what you do, you never finish paying your debt to society.”
While Remy was visibly sympathetic towards Meek's situation, that didn't stop the Love & Hip-Hop star from throwing subtle jabs at the Philly lyricist. "I feel bad that he has to do all that time. But, [Meek] probably should have been nicer to me when he was up here talking about what he told me and what he didn't tell me," she said jokingly.
