Grammy-nominated emcee Remy Ma hosted a press dinner on Wednesday at Bronx steakhouse Don Pancho’s (43 Bruckner Blvd.). The Bronx artist has remained consistently on the scene since her release from prison on Aug. 1, and the dinner was a “thank you” to the media, friends, and family members that welcomed Remy home with open arms. Remy also chose two fans from her Instagram account to attend the intimate event.
Remy's rapper husband, Papoose, “Love & Hip Hop” star Erica Mena, Sister 2 Sister owner Jamie Foster Brown, fashion designer Misa Hylton-Brim, Stuff Fly People Like CEO Rae Holliday, “Girlfriend Intervention” star and celebrity hairstylist Tracy Balan, and other celebs celebrated with the rapper, and a specialty, four-tier cake was provided by local business MDV Custom Cakes. Over a dozen press guests were also in attendance, including News 12 The Bronx, Mike Baro, Gabriel Williams, Matthew Trammell, Dan Reyes, Nandy Mason, Jose Torres, Robert Kenner, Mara the Hip Hop Socialite, and Ericka Goodman. The venue was elegantly decorated by Primrose Couture Events.
Last month, a video montage was published showing dozens of entertainment professionals welcoming Remy home. The star-studded video featured Troy Ave, actor and media personality Terrence J, New York radio icon Angie Martinez, Omar Epps, Raekwon the Chef, Harlem battle rapper Murda Mook, former Crime Mob member Diamond, Havoc of Mobb Deep, singer and reality star Lil’ Mo, and scores of other notable well-wishers.
Before the dinner, Remy described what the outpouring of support means to her.
“I couldn’t ask for a better support system than what I have going on now,” she told AXS in an exclusive interview. “Besides my family and friends and just the media team that I work with, the fans have been super supportive – even the new fans that I didn’t even know I had.
“The press also... I haven’t gotten any really, really, horrible press. I can’t even really say I’ve had any bad press yet. I think it’s a blessing. I think God is shining on me right now.”
In addition to making her rounds on radio programs and television outlets, Remy has faithfully been in the studio. She appeared on the DJ Khaled “They Don’t Love You No More” remix with French Montana last month, and said that more music is coming down the pike.
“The album is definitely going to be next year, but the mixtape is coming soon,” she said. “Days, maybe.” The mixtape will be entitled I’m Around, and the streets are definitely ready for some new heat from Remy!
