Well it seems that Remy Ma has been convicted by the jury and faces and hell of a long time in the slammer. Its a shame that she will probably spend at least a decade in jail and this will probably end her career. Shameful indeed. According to SOHH, who said their reporters were present in the courtroom when the verdict was handed down, Remy was caught off guard by the outcome.
Her lawyer, Ivan Fisher said, “Remy didn’t expect this…she didn’t tell her eight-year old son, who she left this morning [she would not be returning home].”
While all is not lost in the world of Hip Hop, as the sun sets in the North, down South the sun seems to be shining on the King of the South, who managed to escape what could of ammounted to a lengthy career ending sentence for multiple federal counts of posessing and knowingly excepting firearms that weren’t registered. A 1000 hrs. of community service will be required by T.I. to meet the stipulations of the deal he cut with the federal government for his plea of guilty. He will be sentenced some time next year .
“That service will focus on using his high public visibility and his talents to tell at-risk young people about the mistakes he has made and to educate them about the dangers of violence, guns, gangs and drugs” said his lawyer.
“I’d like to thank God for blessing me with a second chance in life and success,” T.I. told the media after the change of plea hearing. “I’m looking forward to turning this negative time in my life into a positive. I know I have a long road of redemption to travel.”
