Remy Ma Talks Ending Feud With Nicki Minaj, "Dope Female Rapper Movement"

She's ready to put the past behind her and focus on the good.

Remy Ma has said it once and she'll say it again: she is so over feuding with Nicki Minaj.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the "Wake Me Up" rapper explained that she's done beefing with Nicki, and was already over it after she dropped her back-to-back diss tracks, a move many fans speculated was inspired by the infamous one-two punch Drake delivered during his beef  with Meek Mill.

"That chapter's been closed," she said. "Everyone had their own reasons for trying to keep it relevant. I'm not one of those people who dwells on things. I keep it moving. This album is about me and my life and my fans."

These days, Remy is focused on much more positive things, like her upcoming album 7 Winters & 6 Summers, which references the six-year stint she served in prison after shooting a former friend in the gut over a financial dispute.

Her experience behind bars led to a willingness to be more vulnerable in her music, with the rapper explaining, "I have no problem opening up to my fans. After everything I went through, I was stripped. Literally: Clothes off, bend over, spread your cheeks, open your mouth, letters read, phone calls listened to."

While Remy may have gotten into her fair share of feuds — as most any rapper has — uniting women in hip hop seems to be a long-term goal of hers. Fans lost it earlier this summer after she turned her Hot 97 Summer Jam performance into an onstage reunion of some of the most talented women to ever pick up a mic, including Queen Latifah, Lil' Kim, and MC Lyte.

Said Remy, "I feel like I was able to help push forward this dope female rapper movement [in 2017]. I think people just started really appreciating that there's so many of us and that we're so talented in many different ways. Neither myself nor Cardi nor Kim nor any other female is single-handedly responsible for the emergence of more females in the rap industry. Everybody contributed. When we start to think that one person is the end-all be-all machine behind everything, that's when we get all the back-and-forth."

The latest celeb back-and-forth currently heating up social media? Remy's clash  with former friend and fellow femcee Azealia Banks, which may even land them both in court if Banks actually does decide to sue.
