Remy Ma Talks Second Studio Album ‘Seven Winters & Six Summers’: “I Want to Tell My Story”
It was 2006 when Remy Ma released her debut studio album There’s Something About Remy: Based on a True Story. Released on February 2006, the album was released through SRC Records, Universal Records and Terror Squad Entertainment and was released on the sixth anniversary of her former mentor Big Pun‘s death.
Now more than 10 years later the rapper and reality TV star has worked her way back on top and thanks to her beef with Nicki Minaj, Remy has garnered a new fan base and is ready to release her second studio effort, Seven Winters & Six Summers.
Rap-Up caught up with Remy spoke about her album, which will be inspired and will be a true-to-life depiction of her time behind bars:
“When I did my first album, I felt like, ‘This is about me. I wanna do what I feel and what I want to do. I don’t want to conform to what everyone else is doing.’ With Seven Winters & Six Summers, it’s the same exact thing. I don’t want to dwell on what people expect to hear or what people want to hear. I want to tell my story the way that it is.”
“I don’t want to water it down and I don’t want to hype it up for the sake of hype. I just think that, a lot of times with artists, we get pressured sometimes to do certain songs. I pretty much have gone in there with an ‘I-Don’t-Give-a-Fuck-About-Anything’ attitude. I love the way it’s coming together.”
Remy currently has no release date for the album, but it is expected to be released later this year.
This past weekend, the Bronx rapper dethroned her rival Nicki Minaj when she took home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist trophy at the BET Awards.
