TI has always been viewed as a “nice guy” from many people in the industry. Palatable looks sans the typical rap thug persona, unlike other rappers, has given him license and entry where other rappers would never pass the test. This certainly has helped him, in what many view as a VERY light sentence for federal gun charges. Remy Ma, on the other hand, is quite the opposite…. period. She is facing 25 years in prison. The former tough NY raptress broke down and showed a vulnerable side of herself never known to fans when she received her guilty plea this past week. Now she is appealing to fans to help her case before sentencing April 23 for shooting her former friend Markeda Barnes-Joseph outside of a nightclub.
A statement posted prominently on Remy Ma’s MySpace page asks visitors to write letters about how the rapper and her music have “positively affected you, influenced you, inspired you, etc. … in hopes that the judge will be lenient.” It provides a special e-mail address for anyone inclined to do so.
I guess there might be something motivation in this verse from Conceited:
“See I look too good to be fuckin‘ you
And I look too good to be lovin‘ you
You know I look way too good to be stuck with you
I’m conceited, I got a reason
See I look too good to be gettin whipped
And I look too good to be havin‘ kids
You know I look way too good to be in a crib
I’m conceited, I got a reason”
