They’re much in love,” Fisher said. “They’re very committed to each other, and they had intended to marry one way or another.”

About 200 weddings are performed each year at Rikers Island, which offers chaplains and chapels, said city Department of Correction spokesman Stephen Morello. Only two guests will be permitted, and the couple won’t be allowed to wear rings with protruding gems.

Remy Ma was nominated for a Grammy as part of the Terror Squad for the 2004 hit “Lean Back.” She also has recorded with rap stars Busta Rhymes and Eminem.

Papoose’s “Born To Win” was featured on the top-selling football video game “Madden NFL 06,” and the music magazine Rolling Stone named him one of its “10 Artists to Watch” in 2006.

The Brooklyn rapper, whose real name is Shamele Mackie, also attracted attention with a track called “50 Shots,” in which he vented his anger about a fatal 2006 New York City police shooting of an unarmed man who was hours away from getting married.

This is actually the first time that Remy Ma born Remy Smith has said her recollection of her former friend’s shooting. Facing up to 25 years in prison, this defense strategy will be crucial to Remy’s case because it is unlikely she will testify in her own defense due toOluwole Ajudun, 21, testified that early on July 14, 2007, after a party in Greenwich Village, he saw Remy get out of her Cadillac Escalade with a “silver chrome” gun.

“I saw her cock it back and jump in Makeda’s car,” he said.

Just moments later, he heard a pop and saw Remy leave Barnes-Joseph’s car.

Another witness, Crystal Ricks, testified that she saw Remy get in the car, she heard a pop and  her having committed violent acts  in previous incidents. Good defense lawyers always shy away from having their clients testify at trial. More on the trial at SOHH
