Brooklyn’s don diva is planning a big return to music soon.
You heard it here first. Grammy-nominated rap icon Foxy Brown is gearing up for one of the biggest comebacks in Hip Hop history if everything goes as planned. Inga Marchand, 43, who’s been heavily present on social media (specifically Instagram) has been pretty active as of late. The controversial rapstress is reportedly working with super producer, Papi Yerr (whose recently produced Nicki Minaj’s Billboard hit, “Do We Have a Problem?” w/ Lil Baby, and “We Go Up” w/ Fivio Foreign).
The Miami-based producer first hinted at their collaboration last month, following the success of Nicki’s Gold-selling single. By now, you all are familiar with Foxy and Nicki’s friendship. The two ladies formed a bond over the years, with mutual respect for one another. Nicki has paid homage and shown Foxy so much love since the start of her career, admiring the rap legend as one of her idols and the one who inspired her as an artist. Foxy made a guest feature on Nicki’s “Coco Chanel” from her platinum-selling Queen album back in 2018.
Foxy later reunited with The Firm, on Nas’ Grammy award-winning album, King’s Disease on the track, “Full Circle” alongside Cormega, AZ, and Dr Dre in 2020.
In 2005, Foxy was dealt with one of the biggest obstacles of her entire life when she suddenly lost her hearing literally after just inking a new deal with longtime collaborator, JAY Z and Def Jam Records, which she was previously released from years prior due to irreconcilable differences over what would’ve been her fourth studio album, Ill Na Na 2: The Fever. The partnership was a joint venture deal with both Diddy’s Bad Boy label and Def Jam, and its then president, Lyor Cohen who Foxy had reportedly fallen out with over the mishandling over her album.
Brown’s last effort on a major label was her critically acclaimed third studio album, Broken Silence in 2001. Since then, she’s faced legal woes in the media, and even served time behind bars due to her behavior. But on a brighter note, she’s since birthed a beautiful daughter and has remained out of the spotlight, while making minor appearances and spot date performances over the years.

Im bout to bring ya…
Hip Hop’s bad girl’s return is one of the most anticipated to date. It was rumored a while back that she would be joining her rival Lil’ Kim for an official Verzuz battle but that never came to fruition. She’s hinted at her comeback numerous times in the past, but it seems like she might be ready now. And while a lot of people tend to leave her out of the conversation, you can’t deny her influence as one of the greatest female emcees from the 90s and her legacy has inspired a generation of today’s newcomers like Maliibu Miitch, Asian Doll, Akbar V, Dreezy, and a slew of others. We’re certainly looking forward to hearing what Foxy sounds like in 2022 with the right production and team behind her.
Last night was the annual Met Gala in New York City, and while Foxy was not present, she did compliment both Nicki Minaj and friend Lala Anthony on their red carpet looks, while hinting at appearing at next year’s big celebrity fashion event.
Foxy Brown is set to perform live at this year’s Lovers and Friends Festival in Las Vegas, which was pushed back previously due to the pandemic. She will hit the stage on May 14 & 15 to perform some of her classic hits. Other performers on the bill include Usher, Lil’ Kim, TLC, Lauryn Hill, Ashanti, Ma$e, Fabolous, 112 and more.
We’ve also heard from a close source that she just inked a big brand deal with the popular bag line, Telfar. Keep it locked right here for more details in the coming weeks.
