Remy Ma recently won a second appeal to gain her freedom, after being sentenced to eight years in prison for shooting a friend in 2007.
According to published reports, one appeal has already been denied, but Remy recently received good news, when she was given good news about her second appeal.
Remy Ma was convicted of shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the stomach after $3,000 went missing from the rapper’s purse after a night of partying in Manhattan in July of 2007.
Her husband, Papoose, told Vibe that he was confident Remy Ma would be sprung from Rikers Island early.
"I can't speak about it in detail due to legal reasons, but we recently got some great news concerning her second appeal,” Papoose said. “Let's just say that she's blessed. I highly doubt that she will have to serve the full time. If justice is served, then she will come home now. My plan is to see her walk out of that hellhole and get a breath of fresh air, so we can enjoy life."

Red Cafe Feat. Ryan Leslie, Lloyd Banks & Claudette Ortiz - I'm Ill (Remix)
Cafe drops to remixes in an attempt to reach the masses. "WHAT ELSE!"
Jacki-O is gearing up for the release of a new street album/mixtape, titled Griselda Blanco, after the famed Godmother from the popular documentaries, Cocaine Cowboys and Cocaine Cowboys II.
According to the Jacki, Blanco's struggle in a male-dominated industry is similar to hers within the music industry, and thats why she chose to name her album after her.
"Despite her infamous background, Griselda was in a game controlled and dominated by men, but she was just as big and bad as they were. She did not play," Jacki says with a laugh. "Being a female in this industry, you got to be a fighter to get your respect, and show people that females work just as hard as the guys do, if not harder.
"I am not condoning her lifestyle, but I can't knock her either, because I'm from the streets of Miami and life was no crystal stair for us," she continued. "There were days we didn't know where our next meal would come from, and sometimes those types of situations can tempt you to get into the street life."
The album's first single is called "How You Been."

In her new video, Ms. Badu sheds layers of her clothing while walking through downtown Dallas.
At the end, when she is totally nude, Badu is shot in the head, falling near the famed grassy knoll where President Kennedy was shot in 1963 but, Instead of blood, animated words that spell out "groupthink" leak from her head on the sidewalk.
At the beginning, it says the vid is inspired Matt and Kim's "Lesson Learned" video, in which the duo strip in the middle of Times Square.
"They who play it safe, are quick to assassinate what they don't understand," she speaks, off camera. "They move in packs, ingesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another. They feel more comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow. They are us. This is what we have become, afraid to respect the individual."
