Remy Martin will make her independent debut this summer on Sure Shot Recordings. The label whose previous releases include Mad Skillz, Talib Kweli, Saigon and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, is excited about the union and anticipates this to be a huge release. “Remy is an incredibly talented MC who can battle anybody, male or female. She continues to carry the legacy of her protégé Big Pun and we are excited about releasing one of the best female MCs in the game”, states Chris Landry, CEO of Sure Shot Recordings.
The album, titled The BX Files, includes 13 brand new tracks and hot guest appearances by Murda Mook, T-Rex, Papoose, Jae Millz, and Maino. Remy also enlisted the help of acclaimed producers The Heat Makerz and Ron Browz.
Remy started out writing poetry which she would later turn into rap lyrics. Growing up in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx, she held her own as a prominent freestyle battler. As word spread about her impressive talent, she gained the attention of another Bronx native, rap legend Big Pun. After her mentor’s untimely death, close friend Fat Joe signed Remy to his record label and made her an official member of The Terror Squad. Remy’s appearance on the platinum selling single, “Lean Back” cemented her place in history as one of three female rappers ever to have a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In early 2006, Remy released her first solo album, There’s Something about Remy: Based on a True Story featuring the single “Conceited”.
The BX Files has already begun gaining attention with mixtape DJ’s and music industry tastemakers. With an August 28th release, the summer is sure to be hot with Remy Ma.
