Reminisce Mackie, AKA Remy Ma, is without a doubt one of the most talented MCs on the planet. In 2014, Remy and her husband, Papoose, joined the cast of one of the most popular reality television shows on cable, VH1’s Love & Hip Hop. Droves of fans tuned in to step into the life of their favorite rapper after her six-year stint in prison, but with only one hour to share with other cast members each week, including a then-buzzing Cardi B, Rem and Pap fans were only left with a glimpse of what they yearned for. Until now.
The powers that be, namely Mona Scott-Smith, have granted the power couple a one-hour special titled, Remy & Papoose: A Merry Mackie Holiday. The show invites viewers to kick off the holiday season with Rem and Pap as they plan the ultimate holiday party for their family and friends in North Carolina.
Why North Carolina? Well, Remy can now officially add entrepreneur to her list of accomplishments with the opening of her first retail store, Conceited. Plus, Remy’s family, including her mom and sisters, resides in NC, so it’s the perfect location to celebrate the holidays. The rapping couple’s wedding anniversary is literally right around the corner, and Remy views this party as an opportunity to unify her blended family and turn their brand new North Carolina house into a home.
The couple has had its fair share of drama on Love & Hip Hop, with Pap’s dreams of a baby butting heads with Remy’s focus on resurrecting her rap career. But nothing beats family drama, and when the couple realizes the house is nowhere near ready for a party, pulling off the ultimate holiday celebration in 72 hours may prove more difficult than expected. With dozens of friends and family expected to attend, including Remy’s right hand, Fat Joe, watching the Mackies come together to perform this Christmas miracle is nothing less than entertaining.
Remy & Papoose: A Merry Mackie Holiday premieres on Monday, December 18, at 9 p.m. EST on VH1.
