MAKEDA BARNES-JOSEPH: Speaking Up About Remy Ma Drama, Weighing in on Foxy Brown, Too

Comments (28)

By Karu F. Daniels, AOL Black Voices

Remy Ma and Makeda Barnes-Joseph

The young woman who was allegedly shot by hip-hop vixen Remy Ma has broken her silence.

Makeda Barnes-Joseph, a galpal of the former Terror Squad rapstress who was shot in her midsection on July 14, isn't mincing any words about her displeasure with the whole ordeal.

"I sit here and I try to think every day, 'Why is she doing that?' How can she deny that?'" the 23-year-old realty office administrative assistant told the New York Daily News. "I'm basically confined to the bed now. It's really hard. It really hurts."

Barnes-Joseph felt the wrath of true diva rage on that near fatal summer night during an altercation at a hotspot in Manhattan's trendy Meatpacking District.

Cops say that Remy Ma (legally known as Reminisce Smith) got into Barnes-Joseph's Nissan Maxima on W. 14th St. after they left the party about 3:40 a.m. and blasted her twice.

The award-winning rapstress then rifled through her purse after shooting her and then took off.

The dispute was reportedly over $3,000 which Barnes-Joseph was accused of stealing.

"Makeda would never steal money," Barnes-Jospeh's mother Christina Barnes previously told the daily tabloid. "She doesn't need it and I didn't raise her like that."

Remy Ma, who is due in court Nov. 29, pled not guilty to attempted murder, first-degree assault and weapons charges stemming. Released on $250,000 bail, she has maintained her innocence, once hollering at reporters, "I didn't shoot my friend ... I didn't shoot nobody!"

foxy brownMeanwhile Barnes-Joseph -- in her bedridden state -- has had time to catch up on all of the antics of another prison-ready femme fatale, Foxy Brown (legally known as Inga Marchand).

"It's ridiculous, the stupid things she's doing," she said of the ex-Def Jam superstar who was thrown in jail last week for violating probation.

"They feel that hey can do whatever they want and get away with it," Barnes-Joseph fumed. "They think that because they're rappers that they need to make a name for themselves."

If Remy Ma did shoot her, homegirl is talking from first-hand experience.
