Russ went to Instagram Wednesday (April 4) and revealed how Foxy impressed him more than rap icon JAY-Z when he first heard their “Ain’t No” single.
When Damon Dash and @kevinlileskwl brought me #Jayz. The song was “Ain’t No Nigga” which ended up on my Nutty Professor soundtrack, all I could say was, “He’s def! But who is the girl @foxybrown?” lol I have lived my whole life by working with smarter people than me! ❤️ i said the greatest female MCs of all time, I she stood out most to me at the time They were amazing together.
Back in late February, Foxy Brown penned an open letter to Simmons amid multiple publicized sexual assault accusations from women.
An open letter……….💋 Attesting to the character of the man who, as a teenager saved my life. Salaciousness and scandal garners headlines. Cowards cower, during times of tumult. But as inarguably, Russell’s biggest Def Jam female protege, (who birthed an era of overtly evocative stars), the man I’ve known and loved, was nothing more than the respectful, respected, gentleman and GODFATHER OF HIP-HOP we’ve all adored. In staunch support, Praying for you Russ!💋 Let’s send our LOVE. ❤️Fox @unclerush
Simmons didn’t waste any time and low-key responded to Foxy’s letter.
