New York rap veteran Foxy Brown has cleared up recent rumors about running late and ultimately missing an opportunity to end her beef with Lil’ Kim at Hot 97’s Summer Jam.
According to Foxy, there were never any plans for her to share the stage with the Queen Bee during rapper Fabolous‘ set last June.
“This story is not true,” Foxy said about the Hot 97 reunion rumors. “What’s been alleged is not true. Scary. It’s so scary. I never thought I would miss the days of Paula Froelich and Wendy Williams. I thought I would never say I would miss those days, no really, but at least there was an ounce of validity to their reportings back then. … Anybody that saw Summer Jam pictures saw Foxy Brown ‘on’ stage, the pictures with Raekwon and I onstage. Foxy Brown was never late, let’s see, it’s a touchy situation because I have a lot of respect for Fab, my brother and Fab are like brothers — let’s just say it wasn’t orchestrated properly and when you have something of that magnitutde, I understand, I have a brain — some part of that [proposed reunion] has to feel real. It has to be real.” (RapFix)
She also confirmed Fabolous approached her about the idea and said her personal beef with Kim was deeper than just a rap conflict.
“The night before he calls me — ‘I wanna ask you something, I don’t know how you’re gonna feel about this but I’m going to ask you — how would you feel if I brought Lil’ Kim out with us on stage?’ I said, ‘That would be crazy.’ … The last time she and I were even [around], there was a shoot-out, the last comment I ever remember her making about me, she laughed at the fact that I lost my hearing. Those things, when people do things like that, and they have malicious intent, that’s different than people just having a rap battle.” (RapFix)
Last June, reports of Foxy’s late arrival ending a possible reunion surfaced across the Internet.
Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim both touched the stage at Summer Jam XX on Sunday. While Nicki was a guest of 2 Chainz, Lil’ Kim had MetLife Stadium buzzing when she surprised during Fabolous’ set. The Queen Bee performed “Queen Bitch” off her debut Hard Core. “When we talk about the ni**as who be killin’ it from Brooklyn, it was only right that we got the queen out here,” said Fab. There were also rumors that Foxy Brown was supposed to appear during Loso’s set, but she was running late. (Rap-Up)
Back in January 2011, a perceived Kim diss track from Foxy leaked online.
“First a b*tch wanna hate on Foxy/ Ten years later now she hating Minajie,” Foxy raps over Jay-Z‘s “So Ghetto” beat. “And all that subliminal rap sh*t, I’ll put you in a Chinchilla casket … Bear witness to the rise and the fall of Miss Kimberly Jones.” (“Christmas Massacre”)
