Remy Ma is portraying one of Detroit’s most notorious female gangsters in her first leading acting role.
The Terror Squad member will star in the title role of BET’s American Gangster Presents: Big Fifty: The Delrhonda Hood Story.
Hood narrates her own story, which will debut on the BET+ streaming service on October 6. Remy, who previously appeared in Empire, will be joined in the cast by singer Tank and veteran actress Debbi Morgan, whose long list of credits includes Roots: The Next Generations, All My Children, and Power.
The “All The Way” rapper recorded the song “The Godmother” for the film.
Like Hood, Remy also served time in prison. She was convicted of assault for shooting a member of her entourage over a financial dispute in 2007 and served six years of an eight-year sentence. She was released in 2014.
