Elsewhere in the interview, Remy talked about her relationship with Lil' Kim ("she’s the coolest chick ever") and her goal to bring sisterhood among women in the rap game.
"When I got the BET Award last year (for Best Female Hip Hop Artist), I felt like, 'Thanks for giving this to me, but Cardi B, I see you. Young M.A, I see you,'" she said. "When people know there's no animosity or ill-feelings towards them, it's easier to embrace each other]," he continued.
Since being released from prison in 2014, Remy Ma has become friends with fellow rappers DeJ Loaf and Remy Ma. She also wants to destroy gender bias in rap, which she feels holds back a lot female rappers in the game.
"There are a lot women who are great and probably can rap circles around these dudes, but don't get the recognition. They get called a female rapper," she explains.
"I don't feel like I'm a female rapper, I'm a rapper," she continued. "You wanna prove it? Go get whoever guy you think is the best rapper], let's go in a room and see what happens."
