Today is the day! Foxy Brown’s ‘Ill Na Na’ album turns 25 today! If you know me personally then you already know I am a Foxy Brown fan to the end! I enjoy many of the female rappers past and present, but Foxy is by far my favorite. Nobody can tell me nothing about Inga AKA Foxy Brown! No one can match her flow or her cadence. Watch what you say about her!
I had already fallen in love with Foxy from her standout appearances on LL Cool J’s “I Shot Ya”, Case’s “Touch Me, Tease Me”, and Jay-Z’s “Ain’t No Nigga”. Foxy debut album was supposed to drop in October around the same time as Lil Kim’s classic ‘Hardcore’ album but it was pushed back. Mainly produced by The Trackmasters, one of the hottest production teams at that time, the album would go on sell 109,000 copies in the first week. ‘Ill Na Na’ is 7 times platinum worldwide.
I love all 13 tracks, but my favs are below.
Foxy doesn’t get the credit she deserves, but I will always give her the flowers she deserves. She is one the best to ever do it! Argue with your Mama!
Whut, say you?
