Simply titled, “The Foxy Brown Episode”, the Brooklyn Don Diva hasn’t made much hip-hop noise since her last mixtape release in 2008. ’90s rap fans continue to wonder what’s happened to the original ill na na, and when some new music is going to come out, on top of the many rumors surrounding her friendship with Jay-Z, how she really feels about Nicki Minaj (who has cited her as an influence), and some of her most infamous issues such as her hearing loss and instances with the court room.
Foxy stopped by The Combat Jack Show and gave an honest interview about the past and the present. While a lengthy Q&A, clocking in at over 2 hours, it may be the best interview she’s given in years, as she clears up a lot of matters for interested fans. Fast forward 20 minutes in which the Foxy segment begins…
To get your curiosity piqued, however, here’s a snippet of what she had to say about Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim (per TheYBF):
“She and I had a conversation because I see so much of me in her. I said, “I took the shots….I kicked the doors down and opened them back up…I did the jail time…and I’ve made a ton of mistakes.” I sit back and laugh at all these girls calling themselves a “bad girl.” And no shots at Rihanna. I love her and she supported me when she posted that pic of me and Kate Moss for W from a long time ago. I was a REAL bad girl. I took the shots. I was sassy and wouldn’t take any sh*t from anyone. It wasn’t concocted and it wasn’t fake. So I tell Nicki she doesn’t have to do that. Lil Kim and I came in and changed the landscape. There have been many girls after that who have tried to do the same thing. But they’re coming out with a group of guys and just putting on a bikini. So I tell Nicki she doesn’t have to do all that, she’s amazing and talented. She can do it herself.”
