Nicki Minaj is just itching to work with Remy Ma, and truth be told, Remy is looking to do something with the “Anaconda” rapper as well. But, when Ms. Minaj proposed a song with Ma AND Foxy Brown, it just wasn’t the right fit.

When Remy returned home from prison in 2014, she talked to lots of folks about doing a collaboration, one of which was Nicki Minaj. Recently Nik revealed that she still had the song she pitched to Remy, telling HOT 97’s Peter Rosenberg, “When I was working on The Pinkprint, I wanted to do a song with Remy and Foxy [Brown], and I still have the song to this day. It was on a Diplo beat, but it was super-hood and hard. It’s only a matter of time before she [Remy] and I do something.”

Nicki may be excited about the song, but we know for sure if Remy is on it, then Foxy won’t be. The “All The Way Up” rapper stopped by the HipHollywood Loft and expressed her feelings about recording with both Brown and the head Barb in charge. “I just didn’t want to do that. I didn’t think that, that was something I wanted to do,” Ma explained. “To me it didn’t make sense at that time to do that triangle. And it wasn’t like in a disrespectful way … I was like, ‘That’s dope that you would want to do that’, but ummmm, maybe we could do something different.”

Well, let’s hope that “something different” happens soon. A Remy/Nicki track could be fire!


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
