Remy Ma got up-close and personal with Buzzfeed’s "Another Round" podcast on Tuesday (March 8) during a live interview, and no topic was off-limits for the outspoken rapper. 

The Grammy-nominated MC spoke at length about her feud with Nicki Minaj post-"shETHER," her thoughts on pregnancy and health care, plus the truths about life in prison for women.  

Below are a few highlights from Remy Ma’s interview: 

Nicki Minaj Diss

“It just bothers me that me picking apart another female is what went viral. We could’ve done this working together,” the rapper explains what went down behind-the-scenes with Minaj. 

Pregnancy Struggles

After experiencing her second ectopic pregnancy, she realized a lot of women have been in the same position as her, but because of healthcare, she couldn’t afford in vitro fertilization.   

"We have all these politicians that claim they’re pro-life, and that say women should not be able to get abortions and all this other stuff… there’s nothing more pro-life than helping a woman who wants to have a child have a child. Then I realized that health insurance doesn’t cover IVF. I could use my health insurance to not have a child if I want to, but I can’t use my health insurance to conceive.”

Women In Prison

Remy Ma’s six-year stint in prison gave her some insight on women and mass incarceration. She states that women in prison have a far worse experience than men in prison.  

“I served time with women who went over a decade without anyone to come see them ... And women get double the sentence a man would get for the same time. They feel like ‘You’re a woman, you’re supposed to be a nurturer… how dare you commit a crime?'"
