Reminisce Smith, better known by her hip hop stage name Remy Ma, (formerly known as Remy Martin), was sentenced to eight years in prison by New York State Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller on Tuesday.

After the death of Big Pun, real name Christopher Lee Rios, in February of 2000; NY hip hop notable and rapper Fat Joe signed Remy Ma to his new record label, SRC under Universal and made her a member of the hip hop click Terror Squad. Remy Ma decided to part from longtime affiliates of Fat Joe and the Terror Squad, breaking her deal with SRC/Universal in the process.

Now it appears that the hip hop diva will be spending some time behind bars even though she claims the shooting was an accident. Remy Ma told the judge "I''m not a menace to society. I''m not a thug." She said sobbing, "I''m pleading with you to give me a second chance. I apologize, I apologize."

However, New York State Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller in his verdict called Remy Ma an “extremely angry young woman whose anger is completely out of control." He added "She does not have real remorse".

The hip hop diva’s problems come from a shooting of a female acquaintance of Remy Ma’s outside an NYC nightclub last July after the hip hop diva accused her of taking $3,000 from her purse following a night of drinking in a Manhattan nightclub. Allegedly Remy Ma walked up to a car, which was occupied by Ms. Barnes-Joseph, pulled a .45 caliber pistol and shot Ms. Barnes-Joseph twice in the abdomen.

The hip hop diva, Remy Ma, was to marry her boyfriend, rap artist Papoose at Rikers Island Monday, but Rikers Island officials did not let that take place. Rikers Island corrections officers had said that the rap artist Papoose, aka Shamele Mackie from the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York City, allegedly tried to sneak in a handcuff key to Remy Ma and that is why the wedding did not take place.
