Terror Squad’s Remy Ma is fattening her pockets in a big way. New viral buzz has developed over the New York native landing a major contract with Columbia Records.
According to reports, Remy is now Team Columbia after going through a mini bidding war.
The Bronx native recently inked a multi-million dollar deal with Columbia records amid the premiere of season 8 of Love and Hip Hop. After a bidding war among labels, Sony secured Remy’s solo album since her prison release. This slate release will also be the “Conceited” rapper’s first music release since her Grammy-nominated collaboration with Fat Joe. (The Source)

Last month, Remy raised eyebrows after linking up with rap veteran Lil’ Kim.
Recently, female rapper Trina explained why she could not co-sign Remy and her rap rival Nicki Minaj’s publicized feud.
“I don’t get into all that – people always try to put women against each other. It’s more of that than trying to unite together because people definitely love to see more of a unity than a separation but in this generation, we don’t have that. We have too many envious, hateful people that would rather see a divide. I don’t know why. I see so many dudes that work together and don’t even like each other – why separate the women from doing that? I don’t like that. That’s something I don’t like.”
In late August, Remy’s longtime mentor Fat Joe talked about the epic rap beef.
“Why we getting into this? We got number one songs. Why we getting into the beef? That’s not cool. I beefed with 50 Cent for seven years. I was like, it’s not a go. But one day I woke up – I woke up in Vegas, I had a show in Vegas and that night I drank too – I woke up and the whole world was calling me. I’m looking at my phone and this ‘Shether’ thing – never heard it. And then I heard it like you. And I was like, ‘Oh my God! Can’t nobody come back from this one – I just didn’t want the rap beef regardless. I knew what she did, she did her thing, but I know nobody could come back from that.” (Power 106 FM)
