Remy Ma Has Mixed Feelings Towards Her “shETHER” Track
Nearing the end of February 2017, Remy Ma unleashed a widely-discussed diss track aimed at Nicki Minaj titled “shETHER.” Although she received praise for her lyrical prowess, the Bronx native declines to agree with the attention the melody has attained.
During an informative interview with Buzzfeed’s “Another Round” podcast, the Grammy-nominated artist shared that she has mixed feelings towards the aforementioned track, mainly because it pits two women against each other instead of them coming together as one lyrical force.
“It just bothers me that me picking apart another female is what went viral,” she said. “We could’ve done this working together.” The “All The Way Up” rapper’s reason for why her and Minaj have yet to produce a collaboration seems to be a hold up on the latter’s end. “It wasn’t me, I just think it would’ve been cooler if we came together and did something crazy and that’s what everyone was talking about,” Remy said. “I don’t regret it, I’m just not particularly proud of it.”
The Bronx native also touched upon her eight-year sentence at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women after she was convicted for assault.
“Prison is worse for women than it is for men… I served time with women who went over a decade without anyone to come see them…And women get double the sentence a man would get for the same time,” she said. “They feel like, ‘You’re a woman, you’re supposed to be a nurturer…how dare you commit a crime?'”
Remy Ma is currently piecing together her forthcoming solo album, Seven Winters & Six Summers, which will follow-up her debut project, There’s Something About Remy: Based on a True Story, released in 2006.
