Foxy Brown

Inga DeCarlo Fung Marchand better known by her stage name Foxy Brown, is best known for her solo work, as well as numerous collaborations with other artists and her brief stint as part of hip hop music group The Firm. Her albums include Ill Na Na in 1996, followed by Chyna Doll in 1999, and Broken Silence in 2001. She also performed on the 1997 self-titled album by the Firm, the only album to be released by that group to date.

While still a teenager, Brown won a talent contest in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Members of the production team Trackmasters who were working on LL Cool J’s Mr. Smith album were in attendance that night and were impressed enough to let Brown rap over “I Shot Ya.” She followed this debut with appearances on several RIAA platinum and gold singles from other artists, including remixes of songs “You’re Makin’ Me High” by Toni Braxton. Brown was also featured on the soundtrack to the 1996 film The Nutty Professor, on the songs “Touch Me Tease Me” by Case and “Ain’t No Nigga” by Jay-Z.The immediate success led to a label bidding war at the beginning of 1996, and in March, Def Jam Records won and added the then 17-year old-rapper to their roster.  In 1996, Foxy Brown, Lil’ Kim, Da Brat, and Total got together for the recording of Bad Boy’s remix of “No One Else.” This was the only track that Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown appeared on together, the two were friends at the time.

In 1996, Brown released her debut album Ill Na Na.  The album sold over 109,000 copies in the first week, and debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 album charts. The album was heavily produced by Trackmasters, and featured guest appearances from Jay-Z, Blackstreet,Method Man, and Kid Capri. The album went on to go platinum and launched two hit singles: “Get Me Home” (featuring Blackstreet) and “I’ll Be” (featuring Jay-Z).
