Foxy Brown Reveals ‘Black Roses’ Will Be Double Disc
Just when Foxy Brown makes headlines for causing an intoxicated uproar, the Brooklyn rhymer serves up some information to tromp her negative behavior. Brown announced that her long-awaited follow-up to 2001's 'Broken Silence' will come in the form of a double disc.
The 'Ill Na Na' creator will finally release 'Black Roses,' her much delayed fourth studio album, according to Billboard. Brown's forthcoming LP will be presented in the form of two discs: one CD replete with hip-hop records and the other with "dancehall rock."
"I'm in the studio every night, slaving," she disclosed. "It's going to be the first double CD from any female rapper in history, so it's going to be really big. One side is going to be straight hip-hop and hardcore records, and a couple big radio joints, and then the other side is dancehall rock ... I personally want it to drop around August or September."
Brooklyn's Don Diva, who released the Lil' Kim diss track 'Massacre' in January, took the moment to speak about her new project as a way to also voice her opinion on the entertainment battle between the Queen Bee and Nicki Minaj. Brown thinks the fellow Brooklyn MC should go back to the drawing board when it comes to her game plan.
"Had she let the people say, 'Oh [Nicki], you're trying to be Kim, you're a fake Kim,' then it doesn't come directly from her," Brown said. "But when you're using that as a platform to bring your new album out, that's like, 'Oh my God, wait a minute.' I don't condone it at all; I don't think it's cute."
But, then again, Brown, who came up with Kim in the mid '90s, says this kind of behavior from the 'Hard Core' creator isn't anything new. "And at some point, it's like, 'OK, Kim, you've had a problem with Foxy, you've had a problem with Nicki, you've had a problem with Faith [Evans], with Charli [Baltimore], with everybody,'" she explained. "It's like, enough already. I choose to stay out of it. Put out great music, and that's that."
