New York rap veteran Foxy Brown has stepped up to speak out on reports that suggest she has a long-awaited comeback album dropping before the New Year.
Despite an urge to release the full-length as soon as possible, Foxy said she does not want to rush out the LP.
Earlier in the month it was reported that Foxy Brown will drop a new album on Christmas Eve. However, today Foxy and her camp clarified. Foxy wrote to XXL, “I set the bar; so as a die hard perfectionist I’m no where near finished my new album. My rollout alone has to be bigger than life. I couldn’t do it any other way!” While there will not be a new album dropping from the Brooklyn native on Christmas Eve, she will still have something coming up for her fans. Fox, on Christmas Eve, will instead drop “new music and video for the streets while finishing the recording of her 4th studio album.” (XXL Mag)
Buzz behind comeback album plans bubbled across the Internet in early November.
It has been quite some time since we’ve heard the name Foxy Brown in a positive light. However, insiders are stating to me that Foxy Brown is done with all the weave scandals and all the foolishness. I heard she has completed a new album and is all set to release it to the world. I’m not sure what she will be talking about, but I am hearing it will have a much more mature tone, potentially spiritual. Lets see! (AHH Rumors)
Although Foxy held back on the details, she did name-drop Neptunes hitmaker Pharrell Williams regarding a project in August.
It was only right that MTV invite some of Brooklyn’s own to their first VMAs in the borough. Before VIBE wrapped up on the red carpet and went inside for the big show, Foxy Brown made a late appearance on her way in. While we only had a few minutes to chat, Fox let us in on a special studio session. “It’s surreal,” Fox says about Brooklyn’s first VMAs. “I just left the studio, actually, but that’s a surprise. But you seen my boy Pharell, right? Hint hint!” Foxy plans to release a new mixtape later this year. (VIBE)
Recently, the Don Diva admitted it would take a lot to make her part ways with her Def Jam label.
“There have been offers, of course. I’ve only been signed to one label my entire career, which is Def Jam.” The rapper in fact signed a distribution deal with E1 Music in 2007 for her Black Rose Entertainment label, but failed to put out an LP during its duration. “My bar is set so high that any label that I go to now has to be an incredible situation for me — financially and spiritually,” Brown said. “I’m on this whole maturation journey; I’m a different person.” The 34-year-old’s fourth studio album, tentatively titled Bandz Up, is in the early stages of recording, though she did debut a title track back in July at a live show for NYC Pride at El Morocco. “I just picked the mic back up,” she revealed. ” ‘Bandz Up’ was the first record that I did.” (MTV)
