For Remy Ma, the Love & Hip Hop: New York star’s recent Grammy Award nod for “All the Way Up” featuring Fat Joe and French Montana was a hard earned victory for the Terror Squad staple. After serving six years in prison for assault, weapons possession and attempted coercion, her rap comeback has been nothing short of miraculous. With her husband, Papoose, diligently by her side, she’s been able to put the pieces of her life back together.
When the 59th Annual Grammy Award nominations were revealed on Tuesday (December 6), Remy Ma ended up being the only female rapper nominated, with “All the Way Up” having a chance to win Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. She immediately took to Instagram to voice her feelings on the announcement.
