Rapper Remy Ma, real name Reminisce Smith, was released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, at approximately 8 a.m.Thursday morning, after serving 6 years in federal prison.
Smith was greeted by her close friends and family, including rapper and husband Papoose, real name Shamele Mackie.
If you all remember, Remy was convicted and sentenced after being found guilty for shooting former friend Makeeda Barnes-Joseph on suspicion of stealing $3,000.
During a recent phone interview with radio personality Angie Martinez, Remy revealed that not only was she excited about being released from prison but for getting her life and career back on track.
As for her competition in Hip Hop right now, Remy notes fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj, as always being supportive but also says that she’s ready to claim her spot as the dominant female emcee in the game.
As for her husband and rapper Papoose, whom she wed while incarcerated, Remy says that she was surprised by his loyalty and that he has always supported her since day one.
There are also some talk that the rapstress may have a reality show deal in the works to document her life and career post prison. We’ll keep you posted.
Are you excited from Remy’s release and return to Hip Hop?
*Update:* As of July 31, 2014, Remy’s release date has been pushed back due to a “disciplinary incident” that occurred on July 21st. It’s believed the rapper may have had an altercation with another inmate. No word yet on a future release date.

It’s been five years since Adrienne Bailon and Rob Kardashian‘s public break up and it’s still a newsworthy topic. So much so, it’s now causing a feud between the singer/television personality and the Kardashian clan.
If you all remember, the couple’s relationship ended when Rob admitted he cheated on singer and “The Real” co-host. Although he tried vehemently to win her heart back, Bailon had already moved on and began dating, who we now know to be, Def Jam Records music executive Lenny Santiago.
However, during her interview with Latina magazine, Bailon again discussed the public split and overcoming the Kardashian and reality TV curse.
In a very funny video, rapper DMX was recorded while riding the Sling Shot at Orlando’s Magical Midway in Florida over the weekend.
Although attending an amusement park and getting on a few rides is a pretty normal activity, it was the rapper’s scream heard all around the world after the footage went viral, that has everyone talking.
According to the park manager, Tracy Kircher, X has been coming to the park for years. It’s just what he had been doing when he accompanied his daughters at the amusement park on Friday.
Could “R&B Divas” reality star and singer, Lil Mo’, be engaged to her new boyfriend and boxer Karl Dargan? That may be so.
The singer has been dropping hints for weeks now. In fact, the couple have both been spotted wearing what appear to be wedding bands in images they’ve both shared on social media as of late.
In case you were wondering, “Love and Hip Hop” reality star Amina Buddafly is still pregnant. If you all remember, during the season four finale of the popular reality series, Amina revealed to husband Peter Gunz that she was pregnant despite their love triangle involving the other woman in Peter’s life and mother to his two youngest sons, Tasha Wallace.
Amina shared several images of the pregnancy photos she took recently with fans on social media. And, we’re guessing all is well in the Pankey (Peter’s last name) household. Amina has been going by her married name despite earlier reports of a strain in the couple’s marriage resulting from the unexpected pregnancy.

TLC group member Tionne T-Boz Watkins would like to give a group of young ladies the chance to become the next big act.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner are becoming the ever budding socialites of LA. The sisters were in attendance at one of Chris Brown‘s recent house parties including guests and fellow singer Trey Songz, rapper Tyga and several others amongst Brown’s entourage.
Unfortunately the images are also stirring up a bit of controversy. Although Kendall is 18 years old, Kylie is still a minor at just 16 years old (turning 17 on August 10th).
Adding more fuel to the fire, Brown isn’t exactly known for his squeaky clean behavior. It seems, it may not have been the best idea for the minor to be in such close proximity with the older group of men.
Over the weekend, Yandy Smith hosted her fourth annual Everything Girls Love women empowerment event in New York City.
Joined by a panelist of women from the media, political, law and motivational speaking backgrounds, Smith and the group of women encouraged the room filled with aspiring young professionals to stay motivated no matter what. As Smith puts it, rule number one, “surround yourself with a team that’s smarter and wiser than you are.”
After publicly apologizing and begging for forgiveness, Robin Thicke has now accepted that his marriage is over.
