More than a year has passed since Remy Ma was released from prison, after serving a six-year stint at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women in New York.
The rapper, who was charged with assault, coercion and criminal possession of a weapon, took to Instagram over the weekend to reflect on the one-year anniversary of her release — she’s been out since August 1, 2014 but she was initially supposed to be released a day earlier.
“At this moment 1 year ago I was sitting in a cell wondering when I was coming home. I had actually gave up hoping that it would even happen,” she wrote in the caption. “I was supposed to be released July 31, 2014 & I had woke up on August 1, 2014 STILL in prison; I was devastated. Yet, by the grace of my merciful God, I was able to awake the next day at home, in my bed, and post my 1st selfie. At this moment I was so happy but still in shock that I was actually ‘free.'”
In a follow-up post, Remy Ma also thanked her husband Papoose for his continued love and support during her prison stint. “He kept me sane; he kept me grounded; he made me believe that it was possible to start again,” she wrote of her husband, with whom she will star in the new season of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York.
