Remy Ma Thanks 50 Cent for Role on 'Power' & Support While Locked Up [INSTAGRAM]
Rapper 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) has always been very vocal about his admiration for female Terror Squad rapper, Remy Ma. According to one of her recent Instagram posts, not only does he respect her as a lyricist, but also as a friend whom he showed major support while she was locked up, and possibly as an actress, helping her land a role on his executive produced hit TV series, Power.
"Conceited" rapper Remy Ma has been out of prison since August of 2014 according to Rolling Out, but has wasted no time jumping right into grind mode by getting back into the studio with label mate Fat Joe, and co-starring with husband Papoose on the VH1 reality show, Love & Hip Hop New York. Though as IB Times reported, the season 6 finale of the hit show wrapped in March with the airing of her extravagant wedding, the Bronx-native may not be officially done with her time on the small screen, if what she wrote on her Instagram is actually true.
According to the post, Remy, real name Reminisce Smith, showed much love to her good friend 50 who not only looked out for her in the past, during her six-year incarceration but, as executive producer of the Courtney A. Kemp created series Power, may have had a hand in getting her an upcoming role on the show.
"When I needed people's support the most, he didn't run away & pretend to be too busy like a lot of others," captioned Remy on the Instagram photo of she and Jackson. "He didn't have to do it but he did & I truly appreciate it...thank you. Now let's get ready 4 my role on POWER," she concluded.
This man @50cent is so special to me; I don't even think he knows how special he is to me. When I needed people's support the most he didn't run away & pretend to be too busy like a lot of others. He took out time to write & sign not 1 but 2 separate letters in the hopes of helping me win my appeals when I was incarcerated. He didn't have to do it but he did & I truly appreciate it...thank you (now let's get ready 4 my role on POWER) #RemyMa #RemyMafia #AllTheWayUp

The Starz original season 3 will premiere on July 17 starring Omari Hardwick, Joseph Sikora, Naturi Haughton and Rotimi; in addition to Jackson as Kanan, a former king pin New York drug dealer recently released from prison, who has been causing chaos ever since his release.
No word on what character could be in the works for the "All The Way Up" rapper but, hopefully it will be something to inspire more collaborations between the two New York natives. Possibly the remix of the remix to "All The Way Up?" After all, 50 did comment on how much he loved the track according to SOHH, when he left a now removed message on Instagram showing love to both Fat Joe and Remy.
"Crack got one (emoji) Remy back on her sh*t This message is 50 Cent approved," wrote the Power executive.
