If you are a true crime buff, well it looks like you are going to be caught red-handed spending a little too much time watching yet another crime show. VH1 recently announced its latest series 'My True Crime Story', which features first-person accounts of people who have found themselves entangled in headline-grabbing crimes. 

The show will be hosted by rapper-actor Remy Ma who knows first hand what it's like to get caught up in the fast life. Remy herself was incarcerated after she was arrested in July 2007 for allegedly shooting her friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph over a financial dispute at a Manhattan nightspot. If you enjoy true crime series then shows like 'Cold Justice', 'One Deadly Mistake' and 'The Jane Doe Murders' should also appeal to you.

How to watch?

'My True Crime Story' will premiere at 10pm on August 2. The episodes can also be streamed on Paramount +.



The official synopsis states, "Each episode features ordinary people with good intentions who commit scandalous criminal activities and ultimately 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 Ma

Rapper, songwriter and actor Remy is quite a fan favorite on VH1, thanks to the show 'Love & Hip Hop' on which she and her husband Papoose have starred since 2015. Remy's biggest hits include 'Ante Up (Remix)', 'Lean Back', 'Conceited' and 'All the Way Up.' Her music has also been critically recognized and she has been nominated for three Grammy Awards and is one of only four multiple winners of the BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, which she won in 2005 and 2017. She is one of only six female rappers to ever top the Billboard Hot 100 chart. However while she has had a successful career, personally Remy's life has been fraught with controversy. After she was arrested in 2007, her rap career was officially put on hold while she served time for the crime. While incarcerated, she released the mixtapes 'The BX Files', 'Shesus Khryst' and 'Blasremy'. Remy was released from prison in 2014.




The trailer of 'My True Crime Story' shows the rise, the fall and the redemption of the masterminds behind some of the most headline-grabbing crimes. Find out what was going through their minds at the time of the crime and how they are trying to put their lives back together.
