Rapper Remy Ma Facing 25 Years in Prison

It looks like its curtains for Remy Ma. The Grammy-nominated rapper was convicted today “of assault, weapons possession and coercion … for shooting a woman in the abdomen in a dispute about money in New York,” Reuters reports. But wait, there’s good news! She was cleared of charges of “gang assault, witness tampering, witness intimidation and assault in a separate incident in which her associates are accused of beating up the boyfriend of a witness.” Ms. Ma, (nee Remy Smith) is facing five to 25 years in prison.
