When Foxy Brown entered the rap game in 1996 appearing on a string of singles with the likes of LL Cool J, Toni Braxton, Case and Jay-Z, many thought the 17-year-old was acting too grown for her age. Regardless, the years that followed definitely made her grow up fast. Though she enjoyed one gold and two platinum albums between 1997 and 2001, her personal and legal issues since then have defined her career. Spitting on hotel employees because they didn’t have an iron, drug addiction, assaulting police officers and manicurists, and scuffling with Miami rapper Jacki-O in a recording studio are just a few of the many instances that have marred Foxy’s image over the years. Her skids hit a new low when she was diagnosed with sudden hearing loss and then sentenced to prison over an assault charge a year later. She has since been released and her most recent project Brooklyn’s Don Diva has been panned by not only critics, but Fox herself. OZONE MAG // 73
