When we spoke to rapper Remy Ma during the last few days of her six-year prison sentence, she told us she couldn't wait to get her hair and nails done and eat Popeyes. "But more than anything," she said, "I want to get back in the studio. When you've wanted to say something for years, and couldn't, and didn't have that platform—that's all I want to do. I'm not rapping about popping bottles and being in the club, because it's different experiences. But I'm ready to go in. I want people to know Rem is back." She came home in August, and hit the ground running: today we get to hear what the Bronx MC has had on her mind. I'm Around features production from Ron Browz and Ted Smooth, as well as a feature from her longtime boyfriend Papoose. Stream and download below via DatPiff.
