*UPDATED* REMY MA'S JAILHOUSE WEDDING CALLED OFF DUE TO PAPOOSE SMUGGLING IN A HANDCUFF KEY; PAPOOSE BANNED FROM RIKERS FOR 6 MONTHS.

First of all, let me say that I refuse to believe a man could be stupid enough to believe he could actually pull off something like this. To think you could break your fiancee out of Rikers is beyond dumb. Moving on....Rapper Remy Ma's wedding has been called off after her husband-to-be was caught by prison officials smuggling in what appeared to be a handcuff key. Seriously? "A wedding was scheduled today and a visitor to that wedding service was found to be in possession of jail contraband so the wedding was canceled," a corrections official told the New York Daily News. "The key that was found today easily opened handcuffs that we and other law enforcement officials use," the official said. The Brooklyn-born Papoose - real name Shamele Mackie - won't be able to see his finance now until November. "The visitor was sanctioned by not being able to visit Rikers Island again for 6 months," the official said. "He was asked to leave." So was Papoose trying break his rap queen, whose real name is Remy Smith, out of the joint? Neither his or her camp were saying - but she has every reason to be eager to break loose. The 26-year-old Terror Squad rap princess faces up to 25 years at her sentencing Tuesday for shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the stomach last July in the Meatpacking District.

Papoose was not charged after he voluntarily surrendered the key to authorities. He was quickly ushered out of the jail and never made it to the Rose M. Singer chapel where the two were set to say their "I dos."

Now, I know I ain't the only person who laughed out loud after reading the aforementioned foolishness.

According to Gothamist.com, rappers Remy Ma and Papoose are finally tying the knot today at a ceremony on the exclusive Rikers Island. Papoose, who recently duped the Bed-Stuy volunteer EMTs for his video, has been planning the big day as his lady resides behind bars. This would have made for a fantastic hour of reality television had they filmed the process for Bridezillas, considering on just an average night out Remy Ma shot her friend in the stomach. Since no reality television deal came through, The NY Times has a piece on what it's like to get married on Rikers Island:

  • The long walk to the Rose M. Singer chapel on Rikers Island starts after the wedding party passes through metal detectors.

  • When the bride and groom reach the altar, the chapel doors are locked behind them.

  • Both Remy and Pap will reportedly each be allowed two guests at the jailhouse ceremony.

  • Marriage vows are uttered in a windowless room with cinder-block walls.

  • The couple have permission for nothing more than a kiss after the pastor declares them husband and wife.

  • “Once you say ‘I do,’ he is going his way and you are going your way,” said the Rev. David Staton. “They are not going home together.”


  • As bleak as it sounds, weddings on Rikers are common; there were 180 last year alone -- though unlike Remy Ma's case, it's the groom that's usually incarcerated. Some other fun facts should you be considering a destination wedding on Rikers: The Department of Corrections sets your date, no flowers, no wedding cake and no photography allowed, a gown can be brought in but the ceremony is so brief that some just wear jail-issued jumpsuits. That's a stress-free wedding right there, especially when The NY Post (see photo above) takes care of your invites. Will the happy couple procreate? There's no getting pregnant on the Island (conjugal visits aren't allowed), however, once married "the couples can apply for a chance for time alone if the incarcerated spouse is moved to one of the state prisons that allow such visits."

    Remy Ma is currently awaiting her May 13th sentencing after being convicted of shooting Makeda Barnes-Joseph in the Meatpacking District last year.
