63: Foxy Brown – Powerful Women of 2013
Not to be confused with the 1974 film icon, Foxy Brown has been bringing her no-holds-barred attitude and sharp rhymes since her debut in 1996. After signing with Def Jam Records, she released 'Ill Na Na,' which not only received raving reviews but also broke the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album produced two big singles: 'Get Me Home' featuring Blackstreet and 'I'll Be' featuring Jay-Z.
Since the success of 'Ill Na Na,' Brown released two more albums, 'Chyna Doll' in 1999, and 'Broken Silence' in 2001. She also dropped 'Brooklyn's Don Diva' in 2008, which took longer than expected to release due to Brown's prison time. Met with mixed reviews, this is the last solo material we've heard from the Brooklyn rapper. She did make a quick appearance during Nicki Minaj's show in New York last year, but Foxy Brown fans shouldn't worry, she'll be back. According to AZ, she's been in the studio working on new material.
