Remy Ma Drops Lil Kim-Assisted Track, "Wake Me Up"

While Kim opts out of lyrical sparring to add her flare to the hook, Remy doesn't hold any punches as she presumably takes aim at an unnamed foe. "I told you not to touch 'em / It's not up for discussion".

Remy discussed the song with Beats 1, saying she wanted to salute a hip-hop legend.

"I wanted to pay homage to Kim".

Over the course of the year, Remy Ma has been slowly making her way back to the forefront of hip hop. As Minaj's career rose meteorically in the late 2000s, Kim called out the fellow New Yorker for copying her style of rhyme delivery and fashion (including replicating iconic photo-shoots), without permission or even giving proper credit. "I want you to be girl that was squatting down in the leopard thong, I want you to be that Kim'".

With the release of "Wake Me Up", it looks like we'll finally be receiving a new album from Remy Ma in the near future. Inspired by her time in prison, Remy revealed she would count down the days until her release in seasons. In the years that have followed, Nicki Minaj appears to have had the upper-hand (and certainly the bigger podium), despite an onslaught of jabs from The Notorious K.I.M.

The album will be her first full-length solo album after spending time incarcerated in upstate NY and focuses on her life at large, according to a press release.

"Columbia Records is lucky to get to partner with Remy on this album", shared Shawn "Tubby" Holiday, the SVP of A&R. We could not be more proud to be her label home, and help provide a platform for the release of 7 Winters & 6 Summers.

"If Peter Piper pecked 'em, I bet you Remy ducked 'em", she raps the way Kim did in '96.
