Remy Ma will be calling Columbia Records home for the foreseeable after signing a multi-million dollar deal with the label.
The New York rapper’s career has been going “All The Way Up” since her release from prison in 2014. It reached new heights this year thanks to her beef with Nicki Minaj that resulted in a stinging diss track “shETHER.” Although the beef didn’t last for very long, it as the focal point of female rap this year for a couple months. Baller Alert first broke the news of her new record deal on Instagram but didn’t give the exact figure.
No further details were given on the record contract, except that Remy Ma will be releasing a new album under the label very soon. Aside from her new deal and a new album in the works, Remy Ma has an upcoming collaboration with Cardi B. The two female rappers have discussed working on a song together and Bardi recently expressed her willingness to work with the Love and Hip Hop New York star. Remy will be joining the cast for season eight of Love and Hip Hop New York along with new cast member Safaree Samuels, singer Lil Mo and her husband Karl Dargan.
Remy Ma and Fat Joe dropped a joint album Plata O Plomo earlier this year. The 12-track project spawned hits like “All The Way Up,” “Heartbreak,” “Money Showers,” and “Cookin.” Remy was reportedly being quoted by a number of labels before ultimately choosing to go with Columbia Records. Before having an impressive 2017, the former Terror Squad rapper spent eight years in prison for shooting her former friend for allegedly stealing $3000 from her purse.
