The Ill Nana Comeback: Foxy Brown To Drop New Single On Christmas Eve


Earlier this week, Foxy Brown was supposed to release her new track. The Brooklyn-native took to her official Instagram account @BadGyalFox and confirmed that she is releasing her long-awaited single “Bandz Up” on Christmas Eve, followed by a mixtape of the same name. “In light of a recent tragic loss and time constraints; as a team we’ve decided to reschedule our date to Christmas Eve,” said Foxy Brown. Back in August, Foxy performed the single on MTV’sRapFix’ during the MTV Awards week.

The multi-platinum female rapper hasn’t released a full length studio album since Broken Silence which dropped in 2001. In 2008, she released a mixtape, entitled Brooklyn’s Don Diva.

Foxy Brown Spotted Louis Vuitton Shopping & Partying With NFL Player Bryant McKinnie; Are They Dating?


We don’t see or hear much about Foxy Brown these days! She hasn’t released an album since her 2001’s, Broken Silence which debuted at #5 on Billboard Hot 100 with first week sales of 123,000 copies. To date, the album has sold over 600,000 copies which was good enough to earn Foxy a gold plaque by the RIAA. The Brooklyn Don Diva who once rap about her “nana being all that” was spotted shopping at Louis Vuitton with NFL player Bryant McKinnie of the Baltimore Raven. She kept it casual in a yellow/black logo YSL top and black leggings paired with Fall 2012 Nicholas Kirkwood Ankle Booties. The twosome also partied it up at Stadium nightclub in D.C. They look so happy together! Are they dating? If they are dating, do you think they would make a nice looking couple? It is rumored that Foxy is in the studio working with Nicki Minaj. Bryant also has his own label called, B Major Music Group. Who knows, maybe Foxy was trying to get a deal. I’m just glad to see her happy!

What’s Beef? The Real Reason Why Lil Kim & Foxy Brown Grew To HATE Each Other With Interviews From Members Of Both Camps

In the June/July issue of Vibe magazine, the publication did an entire spread on Lil Kim, titled “Diary Of Kimberly Jones”. In the spread, Vibe spoke to some of Kim’s friends and former business partners as they gave an in-depth story about Kim’s career, how Kim met Biggie and how hurt she was when he was murdered, working on her debut album Hardcore, and they even talked about an altercation Kim had with Biggie’s ex-wife Faith Evans; which resulted in Kim pulling out a gun and threatening to blow Faith brains out. They also talked about Kim’s beef with Foxy Brown and how it all started. Below is the story on the Kim and Foxy beef. Tomorrow I will post more excerpts. Read the breakdown of the Kim and Foxy beef below:

As Kim’s star status grew, she had to share the spotlight with another female rapper, Inga “Foxy Brown” Marchand, whose debut album, Ill Na Na, dropped that same month.

Gavin Marchand (Foxy Brown’s brother): Kim and Foxy knew each other from Tasha [Smith], a mutual friend that lived on our block. Then they ended up in the same high school, Brooklyn College Academy. They were cool. But it wasn’t a sleep-over-your-house-type relationship.

Smith: [Foxy] was one of the leaders. The pack always followed her, and you always heard her mouth way down the block.

Rivera: They used to record demos in the same neighborhood studio, Daddy-O.

Daddy-O: Inga was the better rapper. But there was no question that Kim was more furious about her craft. I had to stop working with Inga because I watched her curse her mother out in her basement. Kim was never like that… I might play a song that I was working on with Inga to Kim. But Foxy was always interested in what Kim was doing. Kim was never interested in what Foxy was doing.

Shaka Don: Foxy used to call Kim all the time. And then she would [turn around and] dog Kim out to people. Kim finally told me to call [Foxy] and tell her to stop calling her phone. It seemed like everything Kim would do, Foxy would do it right after. Kim bought a Land Rover. Foxy bought a Land Rover in the same color. Kim colored her hair. Foxy got the same color.

BREAKING NEWS: Brooklyn Judge Drops Charge Against Foxy Brown

According to the NYPost, a Brooklyn judge dropped a charge against platinum-selling rapper Foxy Brown in her mooning case. Brown, was facing prosecution for allegedly violating an order of protection last year by mooning a jealous neighbor with whom she had been having issues with for the past few years. Below is how the NYPost is reporting the story:

Raunchy rapper Foxy Brown won’t need to reveal her legal briefs and embark on an “underwear defense” for mooning her neighbor after a Brooklyn judge decided today to drop the charge against her. Brown, 31, whose real name is Inga Marchand, was facing prosecution for allegedly violating an order of protection last year by mooning a neighbor with whom she had been feuding. Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice John Walsh dismissed the misdemeanor contempt of court charge against Brown after prosecutors revealed that her accuser Arlene Raymond refused to testify in the case.

She wanted this matter behind her. She wanted to drop the charges,” Assistant DA Robert Isdith said before asking the judge to drop the charges against the rapper. Brown had pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Raymond had said that Brown removed her panties when she mooned her. Brown, who was wearing a silver dress, heels and a Channel bag, said her accuser was simply jealous of her. “It’s a scary thing when someone want to be you and have your life,” she said.

Brown had been issued the order of protection after pleading guilty in 2008 to menacing Raymond with her cellphone. The two had been fighting after Brown blasted her car radio outside their Prospect Heights building.

Trouble With The Law: Judge Threatened To Jail Foxy Brown If She Comes To Court Late Again

Last summer, I reported that Brooklyn’s female rapper Foxy Brown was arrested for bad-mouthing a nemesis neighbor who had an order of protection against her, police sources said. Yesterday, Tuesday (June 21), Foxy Brown trail was set to begin inside of a Brooklyn courtroom. Brown was scheduled to be there at 9:30am but she didn’t arrive until noon. Brown blamed her tardiness on her lawyer and later hinted she may replace him. Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Judge John Walsh threatened to jail Foxy is she arrives late again.

“Don’t put me in a position when I’m going to remand you to make sure you’re here at 9:30. Court starts at 9:30, not when you roll in.

An emotional Brown countered that her lawyer Salvatore Srazzullo, who didn’t show up in court but sent an aide instead, instructed her to appear at 11:30 a.m. She showed reporters a text message from him to prove her point.

This is b——-. I’m always here on time,” she ranted. “This is why I’m peeved.”

During previous hearings on the misdemeanor charge, the rap diva regularly arrived to court early, then retreated to the ladies room to avoid picture-snapping onlookers until her case was called.

The trial is now set to begin July 12.

Foxy Brown Goes In On Tom Joyner, Plus She Denies Getting Kicked Off His Cruise

Earlier in the week, Tom Joyner announced that rapper Foxy Brown was kicked off his cruise last week. “We put Foxy off the cruise. Let’s just say she got put off. You had to really act a fool to get put off.” Tom did not get too much in-depth about why Foxy was kicked off his cruise, however he did comment on what happened when Foxy called his morning show. The phone conversation had a negative ending, after Foxy cut the call short. “You know Foxy, after the interview, she called back and she was crying. And I said, ‘See, she’s gonna be alright.’ Well, I was proven wrong.”

Tom and the rest of his morning show hosts said they sent Foxy to her cabin since the ship didn’t have a jail:  “Foxy was sent to her cabin” and “locked in[…]but that wasn’t enough.”

If you thought Foxy wasn’t going to reply, you were wrong. The Brooklyn’s Don Diva took to her Twitter account @FoxyDonDiva and released the statement below:

“SO I’m up packing my Luby’s and Kirkwoods to meet my pumpkin Shyne in Belize for a lil’ vacay…..and I get a call that Tom joyner is on the radio disrespecting me….again! OKAY NOW MR. JOYNER, your old enough to be my grandfather which is why I let your distasteful comments in our interview go without putting you in your place. Obviously, you equated my silence with weakness. My maturation with passivity. Grandpa you need to learn some respect, I’m the wrong one to romp wit you will get checked!!”

“Lying ass! It was absolutely nothing but LUV from my arrival to the day I left. Hugs from Monie Love and kisses from Dougie Fresh….I tore the stage down! That’s the thanks I get?? U wait til’ I leave the ship and then 2 days later your on the air saying negative shit!”
