Remy Ma has decided to open up about the song she used to drag Nicki Minaj through the dirt and back — “ShETHER.”
Three years ago, Papoose’s wife dropped the epic diss track that sent shockwaves in the rap world. Remy Ma left no stone unturned and took shots at Nicki’s family, her career, and plastic surgeries.
In an interview with Hollywood Unlocked and Jason Lee, Remy Ma finally revealed what pushed her to do the song:
“I’ve seen her from when she first started, and she was trying to get on. I had great respect for what she was able to do and what she was able to achieve. When I came home, we had had a conversation where she actually reached out to me, and we spoke, and I was just like, I already know ’cause I been through this.”
The new mother went on to say:
“As women in this industry, if you go two chicks and they both pretty and they both being put in magazines, on videos, or whatever, and they’re the ‘it’ girls…it’s gonna be these two [against each other]. We had a real conversation. Anything I say, they gon’ say I’m comin’ at you. Anything you say, they gon’ say you comin’ at me. We’re not gon’ let it get to us, and I thought that’s where we was at.”
Papoose was the only one who supported her while everyone else told her not to go forward ith the track because she may upset some people. Remy said she didn't care because people already weren't doing business with her, so it didn't matter. She admitted that she may have taken things too far, but she just wants people to leave her alone.
