Remy Ma Bio and Age
Reminisce Smith was born under the zodiac sign of Gemini on 30 May 1980, in The Bronx, New York City USA, which means that she is 38 years old and her nationality is American. Using her professional name of Remy Ma, she is best known as a rapper who has released the album entitled “There’s Something About Remy: Based on a True Story”, and who also worked on the reality TV series “Love & Hip Hop: New York”.
Speaking about Remy’s relationship status, it was hampered somewhat by her serving six years in jail, convicted in 2008 of illegal weapon possession, assault, and attempted coercion. She is apparently happily married to her fellow rapper Papoose – the couple was supposed to marry in 2008 when she was in jail, but Papoose was banned from visiting, so they didn’t ultimately tie-the-knot until 2016; Remy was released from prison in 2014. They had their first child, a baby girl, in mid-December 2018, which they also announced on Instagram. Papoose, born as Shamele Mackie, is best known as a rapper who made his debut with the album entitled “The Nacirema Dream”, featuring tracks such as “Motion Picture”, “Mother Ghetto”, “On Top Of My Game” and “What’s My Name”, with the latter being made in collaboration with his now-wife. In 2015, Papoose released “You Can’t Stop Destiny”, and he is currently working on his third studio album, “Underrated”.
So just how rich is Remy Ma as of early 2019? According to authoritative sources, Remy has a net worth of over $4 million, accumulated from her career in the previously mentioned field. She hasn’t shared any information about her assets, such as vehicles and houses, but working steadily, she is seemingly able to support herself financially.
Ethnicity and Background
Speaking about Remy’s ethnicity, she is black and has dark hair and eyes, but sometimes dyes her hair a lighter color. Judging from the photos available on the internet, she has a fit figure and looks well put together at events she attends. Unfortunately, she had a troublesome upbringing, as she was exposed to her family’s drug abuse, and was thus forced to take care of her younger siblings. Ma would often write poetry as a way to escape her issues, and she quickly rose to fame in The Bronx, ultimately getting in touch with Big Pun, who became her mentor. Subsequently, she made her official music debut as a featured artist on his album “Yeeeeah Baby”.
Being in the entertainment field, Remy is naturally active on social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, and is followed by 420,000 people on the former, with some of her most recent posts including a tweet in which she congratulated her colleague Cardi B. Besides that, she shared two photos of herself, adding “The golden child keeps super busy, but I wanted to take a moment to remind you to shop the “Remy Ma” collection. Proceeds from my collection benefit the @RemyFoundation!”. She often uses her Twitter account to speak about issues concerning women’s rights, as that is a topic she’s passionate about. Besides that, Ma has established the Remy Ma Foundation, which focuses on the previously mentioned issues.

In addition to Twitter, Remy is also active on Instagram, on which she is followed by 6.6 million people, and often posts photos from her private life there, allowing her fans to take a closer look at what’s going on behind the scenes. Her fans seem to enjoy her content as they often leave her sweet messages. She has recently shared a photo of herself wearing a Fashion Nova outfit, indicating her collaboration with the brand. In late 2018, she posted a photo of herself and her baby daughter with the caption reading “Best Christmas present ever!!!Thank you @papoosepapoose”.
Ma made her debut album entitled “There’s Something About Remy: Based on a True Story” in 2006, which featured 18 songs such as “Pun’s Words”, “Conceited (There’s Something About Remy)”, “Feel So Good”, “Thug Love”, “Bilingual” and “Guilty”. Surprisingly, despite the fact that it lacked promotion from the label, the album peaked at number 33 on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Tom Album Sales, as well as number two on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart.
Love & Hip Hop: New York
Besides being a successful rapper, Remy is also a reality TV star who appeared in the sixth episode of “Love & Hip Hop: New York”, which follows the lives of people involved in the hip hop industry. She joined the cast of the series in 2015, and is still working on it, which gave her the chance to collaborate with people such as Yandy Smith, Rich Dollaz, Peter Gunz, Mariahlynn and Tara Wallace, among others. Ma’s other TV appearances include “Love & Hip Hop: Check Yourself”, in which she was featured in 2015 and 2016, “VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens”, “Harry”, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “Wendy: The Wendy Williams Show”.
Ma made her acting debut in 2005, when she worked on “East New York”, and followed by appearing in “The Roaches”. In 2017, she played herself in “Empire”, and in 2018 the audience was able to see her in “Queen of the South”, in the role of Vee. Overall, she has had five acting gigs, but who knows what the future holds?
