Court Says Remy Ma’s Former Record Label Not Liable For Rapper’s Crime

Shot victim Makeda Barnes-Joseph has been very persistent in going after all parties involved with Remy Ma, before the rapper shot her, but she took a blow in her journey after a New York appeals court rejected her case. Barnes-Joseph attempted to hold Remy Ma’s former record label accountable for her getting shot in 2007, but the case was denied, ruling that Universal Music Group Inc. ended its contract with Remy Ma nine months before the incident outside a Manhattan nightclub. Remy Ma, a Grammy Award-nominated rapper, was convicted of assault and other charges related to the incident and is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence. Barnes-Joseph’s lawyer tells the AP that she’s disappointed by the ruling. She is also suing Remy Ma and the club.
