Remy made it clear even if her years away in prison diminished her appeal to a greater audience today that would not prevent her from continuing to record music.

“You can’t live your life based on what everybody else thinks, because everyone’s gonna have a different opinion. So, I’m gonna do what I feel is right for me, and if I’m not received as well as I would like to be that’s not gonna change me from making music,” explained Remy. “I don’t make music because I do it for the money. If I never had another record deal in life, I would still write music, because that’s in me. That’s what I do.”

The conversation then turned to other female rap stars. While photos of Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea were posted on a screen behind her, Remy shared her thoughts on the divide amongst some women in Hip Hop.

“I think sometimes we allow as females – we allow people to come in and say, ‘You have to go at her,’ ‘She’s trying to be like you,’ or ‘She’s trying to take your spot,’ instead of just embracing each other,” said Remy. “I feel like if we ignore what other people say – I listen to what people say in comments like ‘You need to go at this person. You need to crush this person.’ Nah, I’m happy to see any female – any black, young individual or minority doing well. I’d do anything to help that.”
