Remy Ma Goes at Nicki Minaj on Lil' Kim-Assisted Single "Wake Me Up"

'7 Winters & 6 Summers' is coming in early 2018.

Remy Ma has accomplished a whole lot since being released from a lengthy prison sentence in 2014. She's had a major hit single with Fat Joe to go along with a collaborative album—and, of course, a very-well-publicized beef with Nicki Minaj. 

Now, Remy has two more notches on her belt: a new song with Lil' Kim, and a new partnership with Columbia Records. 

The Kim collaboration "Wake Me Up" finds the Queen Bee jumping in for a hook and bridge in a style reminiscent of her 1990s heyday. 

"[W]hen I called her, I told her, I’m like, 'Listen, I want you on this record, but I just want you to be Kim. I want you to be the girl that was squatting down in a leopard thong, be that Kim,'" Remy told Zane Lowe.

While much of the song could be read as standard boasting, Remy appears, as anticipated (and despite Kim's denials), to take a direct shot at Nicki in the second verse. "I'll say it to your face, don't gotta relay that shit," she raps. "If Nic' cold and kid, man, O.J. that bitch." The reference is somewhat confusing, as O.J. Simpson's murdered ex-wife was Nicole Brown Simpson, not famed actress Nicole Kidman. Regardless, it appears that Remy's decade-plus beef with Minaj, which erupted into public view with the release of the diss track "ShETHER" this past February, shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

As the track was released, Columbia Records announced they signed Remy, and that she is currently readying an album to be titled 7 Winters & 6 Summers (presumably for the length of her prison bid), for release early next year.

"Columbia Records is lucky to get to partner with Remy on this album," said Shawn "Tubby" Holiday, the SVP of A&R, in a statement. "We could not be more proud to be her label home, and help provide a platform for the release of 7 Winters & 6 Summers. It is an incredible album detailing Remy’s story. She has so much to give her fans and this industry. Remy is a true hip hop Icon and we are beyond excited to share her music, and her vision, with the world."
