Grammy-nominated rapper Remy Ma, whose real name is Remy Smith, will marry rapper Papoose at New York’s Rikers Correctional Facility next week, her lawyer Ivan Fisher told The New York Post.
Fisher told the Post the wedding would be held on Monday and that the bride and groom would each be allowed two guests for the prison ceremony, reported WNBC-TV in New York.
Ma is scheduled for sentencing on Tuesday for shooting acquaintance Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the abdomen after an argument outside Pizza Bar, a Manhattan nightclub, in July 2007.
Ma claimed Barnes-Joseph had stolen money from her purse.
In March, a Manhattan jury convicted Ma on charges of assault, illegal weapon possession and attempted coercion in connection with the incident.
She has been held without bail at Rikers since her conviction and faces up to 25 years in prison.
Ma, a former member of Fat Joe’s “Terror Squad,” is one of three female rappers to ever have a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with Terror Squad’s hit “Lean Back.”
