Remy Ma on the 'surreal' nature of her first Grammy nod in 11 years

In 2005, Remy Ma landed her first Grammy nomination. The accolade was for “Lean Back,” the inescapable club hit she recorded as part of Fat Joe’s Terror Squad collective. 

The Bronx rapper’s solo debut, “There's Something About Remy: Based on a True Story,” dropped a year later. But the album wasn’t the success she hoped for. 

Before the rapper could get her career back on track, she was behind bars — convicted on charges of assault, weapon possession and attempted coercion for shooting a friend in a dispute over money.

After six years behind bars, she was released in August 2014 and began plotting a comeback.

Remy hit the studio with Fat Joe to begin work on “Plata o Plomo,” their first joint album. It’s due out in January. 

Early in the sessions, the two recorded the single “All the Way Up,” produced by longtime collaborators Cool & Dre. 

The record was a smash and continues to be in constant rotation on radio and in clubs. It’s up for the Grammy in rap performance and rap song.
