Terror Squad rapper Remy Ma has lived up to her violent reputation, turning herself over to police yesterday after being accused of shooting one of her best friends on Friday night. According to the victim, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, the two were out partying in New York City’s Meatpacking District (which, for those of you who’ve been, is this story’s first mistake). Remy asked Makeda to hold her purse, and when Makeda handed it back to her, Remy thought that her wallet felt a bit light. So she allegedly shot Makeda twice, dumped Makeda’s purse out and started going through the contents. "What hurts me is that when she shot me she went over and dumped the bag," Maked told The New York Daily News. "She didn’t even say, ‘Oh my God, I just shot her.’"
Remy Ma has apparently never been one for peaceful resolution of conflict. She’s been accused prior of shooting a man in 2003, point-blank to the head. (Miraculously, the bullet missed, and Remy pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault.) In 1998, she was accused of throwing a statue through a man’s window and threatening his life. In 1996, she allegedly bashed the face of a 15-year-old girl at a homeless shelter, where the two were living. And just last month she was arrested for driving with a suspended license.
Moral of the story? Don’t go to the Meatpacking District with Remy Ma.
