Previously, the family of late rapper Big L revealed the Harlem emcee was being honored with a street named after him on 140th Street and Lenox Avenue. Now, Remy Ma is joining the ranks of influential figures to be honored with a street sign in their neighborhood.
Remy Ma took to Instagram and posted footage of the unveiling of the street sign on the Bronx Walk of Fame. Remy was surrounded by Fat Joe, Eif Rivera, and others. In the caption of footage she posted on IG, Remy said, “Today I was given my own street sign in The Bronx! I’ve come so far from the girl that used to take the 6 train and ride the BX22 bus.” She continued speaking about how far she’s come since she was a kid in the Bronx, saying, “I’ve had to go to court across the street from where that sign is, I’ve lived in a shelter down the block from where that sign is, I’ve went to high school a few lights up from where that sign is; I debuted one of the biggest songs of my career is the stadium behind where that sign is… I appreciate & am so thankful for where I am, I wouldn’t change a thing about where I’ve come from, and I’m excited to see where I’m going.”
Remy Ma also thanked Bronx Borough President Vanessa Gibson and Deputy Borough President Janet Peguero for the honor. Take a look at the moment above.
