Now that's what we call a speedy trial date! Hey, Ma ... look, no delays!

Rapper Remy Ma was in Manhattan Criminal Court today, where the judge in her assault and witness-tampering case set a temporary date of Feb. 25 to begin the trial. Remy was popped in July 2007 for allegedly shooting her friend -- so it's only been, what, about eight months?

R. Kelly's court date took five-and-a-half years to set.
