When it comes to the ongoing beef between Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown isn’t afraid to pick sides. The BK rapstress recently spoke to billboard.com about her thoughts on the highly-publicized feud.
“When you’re using that as a platform to bring your new album out…I don’t condone it at all,” Brown said, referring to Kim’s recently released mixtape, Black Friday. “It’s not cute.”
Although she shares a long history of problems with the Queen Bee, Fox Boogie said that she never had any issues with the Young Money Princess. “Nicki has always been cool with me,” Foxy said. “She and I have something online I did for her—it was a video shoot with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, [when] she wasn’t signed yet. And she was like, ‘Foxy is the first female artist who ever embraced me.’ She was classy; she was articulate. I’m so proud of her.”
The Chyna Doll feels that Kim handled the Minaj situation poorly. “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,” she explained.
In related Foxy Brown news, the Brooklyn Don Diva is currently working on her long delayed album Black Roses. “It’s going to be the first double CD from any female rapper in history, so it’s going to be really big,” she said. “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.
Foxy hopes to drop the disc sometime this summer.—Nicole LoPresti
