HOT 97’s new series, “The Reflection” is quite amazing. These sort of function something like MTV’s “The Diary,” VH1’s “Storytellers,” and NPR’s “Fresh Air.” However, viewers never get the questions, only the explanations, which are edited together to appear like a cool, seamless autobiographical narrative.

For Remy Ma, opening up was not always easy. However, in the 10-minute vignette, the onetime Terror Squad member recalls being incarcerated, and opting to make songs a bit deeper than how some of her catalog success had painted her, leading up to the mid-2000s. Remy speaks positively about running with Fat Joe and T.S., remembers M.O.P’s “Ante Up Remix” leading her to hearing herself on radio for the first time, and just how her marriage/relationship with Papoose is deeper than any casual Rap fan might ever understand.
