Remy Ma and Papoose’s marriage status is currently a toss-up. Her latest release with Fat Joe may give some clues. A post on The Neighborhood Talk reveals that her song credits use her maiden name, Remy Kioni Smith, as opposed to other recent releases that carried Papoose’s name, “Mackie.”

Grammy-nominated artist, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Fat Joe has ended his music hiatus with the release of “Outta Control (feat. Remy Ma),” a fiery new track sampling DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s classic hit, “Summertime.” Produced by the super-producer duo Cool & Dre, the song marks the latest collaboration in Joe and Remy’s longstanding partnership. Joe delivers a dynamic verse, followed by Remy’s blazing lyrical display, including the standout line, “They say I shot my friend over a band. And? Imagine what I do to a bitch that I can’t stand.”

“Outta Control” is Joe’s first new music release since 2021, when he dropped “Back Outside (feat. Remy Ma and Cool & Dre)” and “Sunshine (The Light),” which reached No. 1 on Urban Radio and broke into the Top-10 rhythmic radio charts. Over the years, Joe and Remy have proven to be a formidable duo, collaborating on hits like “All the Way Up (feat. French Montana)” and “Lean Back,” which celebrated its 20th anniversary with a special “Fat Joe & Friends Show” at The Apollo in April.
