Y’all KNOW, no one can SPIT like FOXY BROWN! Hands down one of the THE BEST to ever do it! Now back in 2002 Foxy was SLATED to release ‘Ill Na Na Part 2 The Fever’ but Def Jam SHELVED the whole project. It did manage to LEAK and IT’S FIRE—it would have FURTHER cemented her place in the ANNALS of HIP HOP ROYALTY, but the POWERS THAT BE saw differently. HOWEVER, the 1st single from the project did get RELEASED unofficially and of course REMIXES sprung from that. Check out the ‘Stylin’ remix that featured Birdman, Nore, Young Gavin and Loon!

WAKE IT UP!!

Can you believe that 22 years ago, Foxy Brown RELEASED her DEBUT album, ‘Ill Na Na’?! Well the HIT DEBUT actually dropped November 19th 1996. It was reissued on September 29, 1997 in the United Kingdom with an addition of the song “Big Bad Mamma”. Brown began working on the album after being discovered by the production team Trackmasters and appearing on a number of singles by other artists, such as LL Cool J, Case and Jay Z. The immediate success of the singles led to a bidding war at the beginning of 1996, and in March, Def Jam Recordings won and signed the then 17-year-old rapper to the label. Mostly produced by Trackmasters, Ill Na Na features guest appearances from Blackstreet, Havoc, Method Man, Kid Capri and Jay Z. Lyrically, the album mainly focuses on themes of fashion, sex and mafia.
