What is Remy Ma’s net worth? Here’s what we know. Ma was born Reminisce Mackie Smith on May 30, 1980, in The Bronx, New York. Much like Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma had a difficult Childhood. She grew up in the Castle Hills Projects.
Drug addiction hit her family hard and she was forced to care for her little brothers and sisters while still a child herself. Ma began writing poetry to free herself, and slowly build a reputation around the neighborhood.
MC Big Pun heard about her poems/lyrics and requested a meeting with her. After just one meeting (and a freestyle session) Pun knew she was destined to be a star. He started working as her mentor and gave her a feature on his album, Yeeeah Baby.
After the death of Big Pun, Ma was signed by rapper Fat Joe to his imprint label under Universal. On February 7, 2006, Ma released her debut studio album, There’s Something About Remy: Based on a True Story. She paid tribute to Big Pun by releasing the album on the six-year anniversary of his death. Unlike Beyonce and Taylor Swift who released mega-hit debut albums, Ma’s album struggled.
Her label didn’t promote the album so it didn’t get the reach it needed. Despite that, the album finished strong and she was the only female rapper to top Billboard’s Year-End Top R&B/Hip Hop Album chart.
And while her music career was set to take off, Remy Ma got into a lot of trouble the following year in 2007. She turned herself into police in relation to a shooting, which led to even more problems with the law. In March of 2008, she was convicted of assault and illegal weapon possession. She ended up getting six years in prison and was released on August 1, 2014. Remy Ma’s net worth stalled but it would soon recover.
Since being released from prison, Ma joined the cast of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York. She appeared on the sixth, the seventh and eighth season of the show. In 2017, she teamed up with Fat Joe for the collaborative studio album, Plata O Plomo. The album received mixed reviews from critics and debuted at number 44 on the Billboard 200.
Remy Ma has had four years to build up her net worth after her long prison sentence, and she’s done a pretty good job of it. According to the most recent report, Remy Ma’s net worth around $4 million. As long as she stays out of trouble, that number should increase. Ma’s wealth puts her in the millionaires club along with Lil Pump, O.J. Simpson, and Taylor Swift.
