New York rapper Foxy Brown has addressed the recently released "Let Em Know" track where she name drops Jay-Z and takes a jab at past rap nemesis Lil Kim.
Writing through Twitter, the "Ill Na Na" said the song was not for the public to hear.
"So now I've gotta address an old a** song "mysteriously leaked" to controversial headlines and rumors in the streets.....EZ Mo Bee was told to specifically delete this song...So the track should've never been released. Can't front n*ggas luv it though." (Foxy Brown's Twitter)
Foxy's record began to spread online yesterday (February 4) morning.
"The streets talking about the hood going crazy," Foxy raps, "N*ggas heard I f*cked with Ross and had a n*gga baby/They said I f*cked with Nas and now they say it's AZ, but on the low, the real n*gga was Jay-Z -- way before the God blew, way before the Maybach/Outta town trips to Baltimore...I'd rather be at a club at the bar than to disrespect my hood, you 'Dancing With The Stars'/Nah, I'm in the hood taking chances with the Gods -- I can't see all you broads, dismantle all your broads -- slam a b*tch on her back like I'm John Cena, f*ck that, I ain't Kim -- I ain't Trina/I'm BK's own diva." ("Let Em Know")
Last March, Foxy inked a blog posting speaking on her past time behind bars and relationship with Hov.
"15 years old," she wrote. "Brooklyn...So, young Inga, young Shawn, Brooklyn's Bonnie and Clyde...I created a f*ckin' hip-hop classic..."Ain't No N*gga!" And I finally got my name. The one and only Foxy Brown. Bad girl of rap. Fast forward the tape a number of years...On Riker's Island. Looking at an eight-month bid. Since Shyne got 9, hip-hop's been on trial...It was during those 23 hours, EVERYDAY, that I looked long and hard at myself. Who I was...from young Inga to Foxy Brown to a number on a docket." (Global Grind)
Foxy previously went at Kim regarding her "Dancing With The Stars" television run on a past diss track.
"Y'all rap b*tches are mad rappers, n*gga, I'm a freak and need a hood n*gga to eat it a** backwards," Brown raps. "Put your money up playboy, the pink p*ssy price cost like a couple keys of that fish scale white/Catch me at Marcy at the mall, but motherf*ckers will never see me 'Dancing With The Stars'/Never, will I embarrass my borough, I'm too thorough/Dark skin b*tches, we here now...Y'all b*tches wanna be me so bad, y'all studied my whole swag."
