About the My True Crime Story series
Each episode features regular people with “good intentions” who “commit scandalous criminal activities” and make it through the legal system to find redemption.
Told by the people who lived through these life-changing misadventures, thrilling stories include cases of international smuggling, million-dollar jewelry heists, bank robbery, and drug trafficking. When it all comes crashing down, was it worth it?

Remy has walked the talk.

The history of Remy Ma is as juicy and real as any of the great hip-hop legends. Over the course of nearly two decades, Remy has left a mark on rap music across the globe while setting a style and impact that has influenced up and comers in the genre of music.
