Remy Ma Says She’s 35 Instead Of 43 Because She Doesn’t Count The Years She Was In Prison And Under COVID Lockdown

June 5, 2023 / Posted by:

Remy Ma just celebrated her 43rd birthday–according to the government and what we human people consider the measurement of time. But just because Remy has been on this planet for 43 revolutions around the Sun, only 35 of those count. You see, Remy was in jail for six years, and there were those two-ish years of COVID restrictions and lockdowns, so… when you add that all together, she becomes younger. And so should we all! I mean, not from jail–she did shoot someone, she should take that L–but we all can subtract two for COVID.

Remy was sentenced to eight years in prison for shooting her friend, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, outside of a nightclub in NYC back in 2008. She claimed it was an accident. Remy spent six of those eight years in Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. Remy was released in 2014 and then acclimatized to life a little bit, and then terrorized Nicki Minaj for a few years, and now she’s back just living life and raising her second child, 2-year-old Reminisce, with rapper Papoose. Reminisce was born after some difficulty conceiving, and Remy had a tough birth, but she got a baby and a $94,000 car out of it, so worth it! Remy also has a 20-year-old son, Jayson, from a previous relationship.

Remy’s birthday is May 30, and for her birthday, Papoose brought out her favorite artist, Mase. And as a gift to the rest of us, Remy took us all back in time. via ClutchPoints:

“I got everybody in here number. We call, text, we talk shit… so I appreciate all of y’all coming to my 35th birthday. I don’t fucking count the ones when I was in prison, and I don’t count the ones from COVID.”

The party was a surprise from her husband Papoose who surprised her with Mase who is Remy’s favorite artist. “Surprised the Queen @remyma with 1 of her fav rappers. Felt good to see her genuinely surprised & happy,” Papoose wrote in the caption of video posted to Instagram. “She’s made my born day special so many times. This was well deserved…”

Here’s the party:

I would love to step back eight years in time. Twenty-four? I’d be a fetus! I’d be young enough that I could get on mainstream TikTok! I could change it all around in one half-assed dance routine–the world would be my oyster.
