It was back in October 2017 when it was announced that Remy had inked a deal with the label following her release from prison. But, Remy most recently did an interview with HipHop DX where she revealed that her long-awaited sophomore album “7 Winters, 6 Summers” has been scrapped.
She went on to reveal that her new album will be titled Reminisce, after her daughter. The “Conceited” rapper also admitted that her scrapped album was “not for radio”.
“It’s genuine. It’s from the heart. It’s not for radio,” the State of the Culture host told HipHopDX. “It’s not for streams, it’s not for social media … it’s for me, my day one fans and anybody that’s a fan of Hip Hop and rap.”
She touched on how she didn’t stress herself out with trying to make radio hits when recording the album.
“I think a lot of times, we get caught up in the trends and charts,” she explains. “If that happens, great. I would love for it to be successful, but I didn’t want to go in recording it with the mindset.
“I think as artists sometimes we get caught up in that, and we get pressured to be on that hype all of the time — it takes away from the artistry, the creativity and from the actual art of music,” she says.
There’s no official word from Remy or Columbia Records on the possible fallout. But, what do you think?
