This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

May 30th - Remy Ma, of The Terror Squad, was born Reminisce Smith in The Bronx, New York, on this day in 1981.

After dazzling classmates in high school lunch room poetry slams, she came to the attention of fellow Bronx native, the late Big Pun.

She would appear on a couple of tracks on Pun’s 2000’s posthumous sophomore set “Yeeeah Baby”.

After the tragic passing on Big Pun in 2000, Remy Ma was then signed to Fat Joe’s Terror Squad Records.

In 2004, she appeared on The Terror Squad’s classic hit “Lean Back” from their sophomore album “True Story”.

Remy Ma released her debut solo album, “There’s Something About Remy: Based On A True Story”, on Terror Squad.

The album spawned the singles “Conceited”, “Feels So Good”, featuring Ne-Yo and “Whuteva”.
