Saturday was Aug. 1. You know what that means, right? It’s the one-year anniversary of when Remy Ma finally stepped foot out of prison. She had been serving a six-year sentence for the shooting of Makeda Barnes-Joseph outside of nightclub.
To commemorate the anniversary, Remy Ma took to Instagram to share her thoughts on the past year and her love for her husband Papoose. Her first post was a repost of her first Instagram picture outside of jail walls.
At this moment 1 year ago I was sitting in a cell wondering when I was coming home. I had actually gave up hoping that it would even happen. I was supposed to be released July 31, 2014 & I had woke up on August 1, 2014 STILL in prison; I was devastated. Yet, by the grace of my merciful God, I was able to awake the next day at home, in my bed, and post my 1st selfie. At this moment I was so happy but still in shock that I was actually “free”…

The second one was with Papoose’s hand. Who knows if Remy Ma woke up this morning and was like, “Bae. BAE! Gimme your hand for a second,” but let her have her moment.
Here it is, exactly 1 year later and it feels great to say #ImAround. Thank you to everyone that supported me and helped make my transition back into society a warm, inviting, & loving feeling😘 I am truly thankful. However, I would not have been able to be WHO I am & where I am today had it not been for my loyal, honest, dedicated, & loving husband and best friend 💍@papoosepapoose. He kept me sane; he kept me grounded; he made me believe that it was possible to start again. I love him and cannot express how thankful & honored I am to have such a REAL real one. #BlackLove#RemyMa#RemyMafia
