Foxy Brown Releasing A Double Album This Summer, Plus She Speaks On Lil Kim Vs. Nicki Minaj

Brooklyn’s Don Diva is putting her focus back into music. Foxy Brown will be releasing her long-awaited comeback LP Black Roses this summer. In an interview with Billboard.Com. Foxy spoke on her new album, her “Massacre” diss track going at Lil Kim and she addressed the media putting out false stories about her. Also, Foxy spoke briefly on the Lil Kim Vs. Nicki Minaj beef. Read Foxy’s interview with Billboard below:

And you’re prepping new music yourself, right?

The new album! “Black Roses.” I’m in the studio every night, slaving. It’s going to be the first double CD from any female rapper in history, so it’s going to be really big. One side is going to be straight hip-hop and hardcore records, and a couple big radio joints, and then the other side is dancehall rock… I personally want it to drop around August or September.

You also released the track “Massacre” last month, which addressed the Lil Kim-Nicki Minaj feud. What do you think about that situation?

Nicki has always been cool with me. She and I have something online I did for her — it was a video shoot with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, [when] she wasn’t signed yet. And she was like, “Foxy is the first female artist who ever embraced me.” She was classy; she was articulate. I’m so proud of her .

Of course, people everywhere clearly are saying, “She wants to be Foxy, she wants to be Kim.” Everybody’s going to say that. But do I think she’s doing an incredible job at branding herself? Yes, I do. When you’re an icon in the music business…like Mary J. BligeKeyshia Cole came out after her, [but] you didn’t hear Mary J. Blige starting a beef with her just because they compared [Keyshia to] her. Mary J. Blige stayed clean. She does what she does, and I do what I do.

Meanwhile, Lil Kim stays outspoken.

Had she let the people say, “Oh [Nicki], you’re trying to be Kim, you’re a fake Kim,” then it doesn’t come directly from her. But when you’re using that as a platform to bring your new album out, that’s like, “Oh my God, wait a minute.” I don’t condone it at all; I don’t think it’s cute.

Nicki clearly drew from both Kim and me. And she hasn’t been disrespectful to me in any way — I haven’t heard her be disrespectful toward anybody else but Kim. And at some point, it’s like, O.K., Kim, you’ve had a problem with Foxy, you’ve had a problem with Nicki, you’ve had a problem with Faith [Evans], with Charli [Baltimore], with everybody. It’s like, enough already. I choose to stay out of it. Put out great music, and that’s that.

The Hottest 5 Rap Chicks To Come Out Under An All Male Crew

Every since Hip-Hop emerged back in 1978, almost ever female emcee came out under an all male crew.  Lady of Rage, Diamond, Trina, Da Brat, Mia X, Roxane Shante, Yo-Yo and a lot of other female rappers came in the game as the protegé of a male rapper. Regardless who they came up under,  every female emcee still had to define themselves as an artist in order to stay relevant and sell records. The only female emcee that I can think of in a long time that didn’t come up under an all male crew is Lil Mama. I came up with a list of “The Hottest 5 Rap Chicks To Come Out Under An All Male Crew.” Peep my list below.

Name: Lauryn Hill

Reppin: East Orange, New Jersey

Affiliation: Wyclef Jean, Pras & Fugees

Albums sold: 24 million

It been three weeks since you been looking for your friend, the one you let hit and never called you again.” Hands down this five times Grammy Award winning rapper/singer from South Orange, New Jersey is the greatest female rapper to ever do it. L-Boogie first risen to fame in the late 90’s with underground Hip-Hop trio Fugees. In 1994, Fugees (Wyclef Jean, Lauyrn Hill and Pras) released their debut underground Hip-Hop LP Blunted On Reality. Even though “Nappy Heads” (Mona Lisa) and “Vocab” was two dope songs on the underground tip, the album didn’t gain mainstream success. It was Fugees 1996 LP The Score to put them on the map. The album sold over six million copies worldwide (according to the RIAA), won a Grammy award and peaked #1 on Billboard 200 charts. The album featured productions from John Forte, Salaam Remi, Shawn King, Diamond and Jerry Duplessis and had guest appearances from Rah Digga and Young Zee. The group disbanded in 1997 and L-Boogie went solo with the released of The Miseducation Of Lauyrn Hill. The album was released on August 25, 1998 and sold 422,624 copies in the first week, which still holds the record for the highest first week debut from a female Hip-Hop solo artist. As of today, the album has sold over 18 million copies worldwide and won 5 Grammy Awards. “Doo Wop” (That Thing) reached #1 on the Billboard charts; while “Ex-Factor,” “Lost One,” and “Everything Is Everything” all reached the top 40 on Billboard charts.

Name: Lil Kim

Reppin: Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, New York

Affiliation: Biggie Smalls and Junior Mafia

Albums sold: 5 million

What Kim done for female Hip-Hop is unbelievable and can never be done again. Before Kim came in the music industry, female rappers were rapping in boy clothes with boots and at that time were being hardcore femcees. Kim broke that barrier by introducing a sexy side to female Hip-Hop and made it cool for females to talk about how they get f**ked. Kim has platinum and gold albums under her belt. Kim made her debut with Junior Mafia in the early 90’s. The group dropped their debut album Conspiracy in 1994. “Player’s Anthem” and “Get Money” both reached the top 20 on Billboard charts and the album went gold. Kim’s debut solo album Hardcore  was released in November 1996 and went on to sell over two-million copies worldwide. The lead single from the album “No Time” Ft. Puff Daddy reached the top spot on Billboard Hot Rap Tracks chart. In June 2000, Kim’s  released her second album The Notorious Kim, which debuted at #4 on Billboard 200 and #1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Song Charts and was certified platinum by the RIAA. In 2001, Kim received her first #1 debut on Billboard Hot 100 for “Lady Marmalade” with Christina Aguilera, Pink and Mya. The song stayed at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for five weeks and won a Grammy. In March 2003, Kim released her third album La Bella Mafia. The album lead single “The Jumpoff” reached # 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the second single “Magic Stick” Ft. 50 Cent reached # 2, helping the album go platinum. Kim won two Source Awards (Female Hip-Hop Artist of the Year and Female Single of the Year) and was nominated for two Grammys for this album. While serving a year in prison, Kim’s fourth album The Naked Truth  was released in September 2005. The album debuted at # 6 on the Billboard 200 charts, which became Kim’s third top 10 album. Even though the album failed to reached gold status, it was rated 5 Mics in The Source magazine,  making her the only female rapper to ever received a 5 mics rating. Lil Kim’s reality show Lil Kim: Countdown To Lockdown became the highest rated premiere in BET history, with 1.7 million viewers .

World Premiere: Foxy Brown “Massacre” (Lil’ Kim Diss)

Nearly 3 weeks after Foxy Brown was supposed to released “Christmas Massacre” dissing Lil Kim, she renamed the track “Massacre,” rhyming over  Jay-Z’s “So Ghetto” instrumental. New York’s DJ Kay Slay premiered the track last night. The two Brooklyn femcees were friends before and even appeared on the cover of The Source magazine together but their friendship ended in the late 90’s early 2000’s when Lil Kim felt like Foxy Brown was swagger jacking her style. At one point the beef almost ended deadly when members of their camps exchanged shots outside of Hot 97 radio station in NYC. Kim actually served one in prison for her role in the shooting. The beef heated back up back in November when Kim threw a subliminal at Foxy on “Black Friday” dissing Nicki Minaj. Lil Kim said, “This hood s**t you and Drake ain’t built for, this the same ish the other b***h almost got killed for.” I’m assuming Fox took offense to that, so she recorded a new diss track aimed at The Queen Bee. Listen to the track below.

First a bitch wanna hate on Foxy/ Ten years later now she hating Minajie“-Foxy Brown

Foxy Brown Refused To Perform Because The Promoters Sent Her The Wrong SUV

Please check the four side banner ads on the left and take advantage of the exclusive offers.

Brooklyn’s Don Diva Foxy Brown refused to perform at a show earlier this week because the promoters sent her the wrong SUV. According to TMZ Foxy was scheduled to perform at Splash Bar New York in Manhattan on Wednesday night, but the promoters of the show tells TMZ they got an angry call from Foxy’s people that night when the car they sent to pick her up arrived. Seems Foxy had requested a 2010 model SUV, but instead she got a 2009.

A rep for Foxy tells TMZ, “They promised they would give her the rest of the deposit and balance due when she arrived, but did not! Foxy was disappointed that the deposit and rider requirements were not met, that was all.”

In my opinion, besides Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown “is the greatest female rapper of all times.”  She came in the game  at 14 with the best. At 16, she was on tracks with Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G, Nas, Case, AZ, LL Cool J and Cormega. These new rap chicks  are not f**king with the 16’s that Foxy wrote when she was 16. On that mic Foxy is a beast. She sold over 10 million records, been on world tours, has her own fur line and own some brownstones and condos in NYC and NJ. Her networth is a little over $18 million. Fox make examples out of bum rap bitches, ask Jacki-O and Remy Ma.

Foxy Brown Beats Felony Case, Says “Legal Troubles Are Because Of Jealousy”

The Ill Na Na will not be facing jail time, all charges except one was dropped against her today in a Brooklyn court. This past July, Fox Boogie was indicted for allegedly violating a court order that barred her from contacting a neighbor in Prospect Heights. A grand jury failed to indict her on two felonies and three of four misdemeanors. Although little happened inside the courthouse during her two-minute hearing, Brown did a fair amount of talking to reporters outside the building.

Fox, who just celebrated her 32nd birthday yesterday told reporter, “I always knew I was innocent. And this is all about jealousy.” -Foxy Brown

Brown’s lawyer said the DA’s office sent the appearance notification for Brown’s court hearing to the wrong lawyer so her arraignment on the indictment was rescheduled for Friday.

The DA failed to indict her on all felony counts and three misdemeanors,” said Brown’s lawyer Salvatore Strazzullo. “They’re going after the big fish.”

If convicted, Brown faces community service.

Foxy Brown Indicted, Could Go Back To Jail For One Year

Fox Boogie be in the news more than the studio, and it not for anything positive. Each time she makes headlines, it’s for something negative. The Brooklyn’s Don Diva was indicted last Friday (August 13) for violating an order of protection that her neighbor Arlene Raymond filed against her back in 2008.

According to the AP, Fox Boogie was charged with criminal contempt in the second degree and could face up to one year in jail if convicted of the crime.

Fox Boogie, hold your head up, I’m still riding with you love.
