Inga Fung Pushed Back Again

4 02 2008

Here’s a shocker. Foxy Brown’s album Rikers’ Don Diva or whatever it’s called is being pushed back yet again.

The Brooklyn bred MC will now see the release of her LP, Brooklyn’s Don Diva, re-scheduled for the second time. The album, which had been pushed back to a February 5th release date, now won’t be released until this spring. Chaz Williams, Foxy’s manager, told SOHH the decision was made so the rapper would not have to forgo promotion of the album and enjoy a proper release.

“The album release date has been changed at the direction of Foxy and Black Hand Management,” Williams said. “Foxy will be out in April and we wanted her to be able to participate in the promotion of this album.”

“This also gives us the opportunity to get out the proper visuals and videos to support her records, as well as the opportunity to do live radio promo and tour in support album release,” he added. “This was a business decision we felt served our best interest as an independent record company.” (Source)

Damn, no tentative date, just “this spring”? We couldn’t even get a hint bigger than that one? This is almost as bad as when my dude Soulman asked Mya when her album was coming out and she was like “Uhhh. 2007. Or some year starting with ‘2′.”

If Foxy participating in the promotion of the album has anything to do with her throwing phones at Koreans, spitting on people and/or wearing blue eyeshadow, it might be better for them to go ahead and release this mess without her help.

Do they really think she’s going to be out for long? With her track record she’ll go back in August for eating a baby.

Judge To Foxy: I Don’t Hear You!

29 01 2008

Wonky Brown’s request to be let out of prison early so she can undergo surgery for her hearing has been denied. You don’t hear me, though!

On January 17, Brown’s attorney Laura Dilimetin asked acting state Supreme Court Justice Melissa Jackson to amend the rapper’s sentence, so she could visit Los Angeles’ House Clinic tomorrow (January 30), where she received her initial treatment for her hearing loss.

On Thursday (January 24), State Supreme Court Judge Melissa Jackson ruled against the Brown’s petition.

Prosecutors argued that the 29-year-old rapper can receive the treatment that she needs in New York and labeled the request a “desperate and frivolous petition.”

In a four-page letter to Judge Jackson, Brown claimed that she was terrified in prison because she cannot hear properly.

“I am terrified of not hearing a fire alarm go off, or being locked in a cell, and someone not being kind enough to let me out, since not everyone understands the severity of my condition,” wrote Marchand. (Source)

I bet she can hear fine when they announce it’s time for food. And I don’t doubt someone would leave her in there during a fire, but not because they don’t know about her “condition”.

Apparently her hearing aid got messed up during an altercation with another inmate, who punched her in the ear. Now that’s gangsta! That’s what her ass gets for trying to talk bold all the time! When Lil’ Kim was in prison she knew her role and made nice with all the inmates. I’m sure she made a visit to some “boxes”, too, but that’s a discussion for another time.

Foxzilla’s NEW Album Cover

16 01 2008

Cause she knew and we all knew that the one before looked straight up like Lil’ Kim’s old joint. Hai tittayballs! Welcome! *waves*

She’s delirious though if she thinks anyone is checking for this record. I’d rather hear Khia & Princess from Crime Mob do a collabo called “Hot Grease & Hot Combs” featuring vocals by Ms. Peachez. Seriously. At least I could laugh.

This cover looks like Jay-Z told her to park his Bentley out back one day and she ran off to The Picture Place instead and got her friend to snap a few photos in the parking lot before Jay wondered where she went. “Quick girl, snap the picture!! Hurry up!!” Girl stop!

Foxy Wants Out For Health Reasons

16 01 2008

Fox Boogie has applied for another appeal as of yesterday, and wrote a handwritten letter to the judge to plead for leniency:

Rapper Foxy Brown, serving a year-long prison term stemming from an assault charge, has asked a New York judge for early release to treat an ear condition she fears could threaten her hearing.

“I ask you to please take into consideration that my health is in jeopardy,” Brown wrote in a four-page handwritten letter to Judge Melissa Jackson. The letter was part of an appeal filed late yesterday (Jan. 15) at New York State Supreme Court.

“Yes, I’ve made some bad choices and stupid mistakes. But please understand that sitting in a prison with murderers and criminals is not rehabilitating or what I need to deal with my inner issues.”

Brown’s lawyer, Laura Dilimetin, said in court papers that Brown’s ear condition makes continued incarceration unfair. In January 2006, Brown underwent surgery to have an electronic device implanted in her right ear to reverse “profound hearing loss,” Dilimetin said.

The only doctor who has successfully treated Brown’s condition — and complications with the implant — is based in California, she said. “If her hearing is damaged any further, it will affect the way she hears and it will affect the way she sings. It will have dire consequences on her ability to maintain her profession and livelihood,” Dilimetin said.

Brown says that she has learned her lesson. “Up until now, you’ve only heard about Foxy Brown the artist. I’d like to show you Inga Marchand the beautiful person that my mom raised me to be,” she wrote “Jail has shaken me to my core, and my time away has impacted me greatly.” (source)

I think Inga has been in long the clink long enough. I do feel kind of sad for her, because the thought of losing my hearing makes me convulse and shake like a crackhead for $3 dollars. GIVE INGA FREE, and then throw Marion Jones’ “Pinocchio” a-asterisk-asterisk in that same cell so she can ponder herself over what she done did! LOL!

I know one thing — if she ain’t rehabilitated enough and she still come out getting her Naomi Campbell on, I will officially give up on her and pretty much all female rappers. The side of the game is just tragedy.

I’m going to print up my “Free Foxy!” t-shirts right now. I am taking pre-orders! Also taking bets for how soon she smacks a b*tch with a Louboutin pump and ends up back in that joint. The odds are good! Get that money in!

Foxy Brown “Needs Clinical Help”. No Shit!

10 12 2007

A close friend of Foxy Brown’s is speaking out to say he believes the rapper needs clinical help for her struggle with anger management. Got any other brain busters for us? Maybe Amy Winehouse needs to go to rehab and Omarion needs a new hairstylist.

“If they release her today, she’ll be back in a week,” Geoffrey Davis, a friend of Foxy’s, told the news outlet. Davis has visited the rapper at Rikers several times since she was locked up for violating her probation.

According to Davis, who is also an activist who runs a nonprofit, anti-violence organization in Brooklyn, Foxy can’t change alone. He thinks the rapper needs professional help.

“I love her, and I have her best interests at heart, but I think she needs clinical help with anger management,” he said. (Source)

Well, I don’t know how trustworthy this person is (Foxy has friends?) but I will say this, I’m happy someone who ISN’T just trying to beef with her or whatever is putting it out there that, yes, this girl is touched. I’m sure Foxy surrounds herself with yes people so even if her head turned in a circle like Linda Blair, they’d be saying she was OK.

Play Nice With the Other Kiddies Now, Inga

27 11 2007

Wonky Brown is out of solitary confinement a month and a half early for “good behavior”, according to Billboard.

According to reports, Brown, along with four other female inmates at the Rose M. Singer facility, where the Brooklyn MC has been jailed since Aug. 22, were given early release.

“Foxy is out and her spirits never wavered,” Brown’s manager Chaz Williams tells Billboard.com. “While in solitary, she continued to answer each and every fan letter. She also told me she wrote some pretty hot songs while there. She’s back in the law library and looks forward to ending this chapter in her life.” (Source)

I hope she paid close attention to the assault section of those law books. I don’t wanna hear about her ass getting out of jail and getting thrown right back in for hitting her neighbor’s mother’s dog’s friend with a GameBoy.

I’m glad she’s writing hot songs, too, because that mess I posted a few weeks ago was straight bunk.

Honestly, Who Really CARES!?

15 11 2007

 

“Brooklyn’s Don Diva,” the forthcoming album from jailed rapper Foxy Brown, will now be released on Feb. 5th instead of Tuesday as originally scheduled, her camp announced.  No explanation was given for the delay.

She needs to get her life together and get right with G-O-D and not Big Bertha from Cellblock D and quit worrying about this “album” — if she even KNOWS she has an album coming out LOL. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s in jail blowing bubbles and coloring and someone is just putting this out to make a quick buck to keep her name in the press.

As grandma say, “Give up the ghost baby! Give it up! Let it go! Turn it loose! It’s over!”

Foxzilla’s Album Cover

1 11 2007

Praise the Lord and pass the batteries!

This album is going to be a mess, and it was pushed back to Dec. 11, according to the good folks over at Nahright.

I have nothing to say other than that she looks like she is bout to stomp all over Manhattan in search of a tub of gel and some Black N’ Milds.

By Request: Lil’ Kim “La Bella Mafia” cover. Ok while SOMETHING in this picture screams “Kim!” to me (maybe it’s the pose & the bridge?), I don’t know, the jury is still out. The bridge alone is definitely played out though.

And T.I. Bought Those Guns Because He’s Near-Sighted

26 10 2007

Foxy Brown, a.k.a. Ms. Inga Fung Marchand (yes, that’s her real name) is now saying all this drama that’s going on with her in jail is because she’s hard of hearing. So you mean to tell me if we would have gotten this bitch a Q-Tip, she wouldn’t have gotten into it with Shartrecia from Cell Block C? Ho please.

Incarcerated rapper Foxy Brown was recently thrown in the hole at Rikers for bad behavior, but her manager said the whole thing is a misunderstanding largely due to the artist’s hearing impairments.

As SOHH previously reported, Foxy (born Inga Marchand) was sentenced to 76 days of “punitive segregation” after committing three violations at Rikers Island this month.

Foxy’s manager, Chaz Williams of Black Hand Entertainment, said the allegations against the Brooklyn bred rapper aren’t completely true, according to Billboard.

“There was an incident where a girl attempted to confront her and she stood her ground, but there wasn’t any contact,” Williams explained to Billboard. “Words were exchanged and that was it.”

About Foxy’s alleged refusal to take a drug test? “Really she didn’t hear the request,” Williams said. “She has a battery-operated device and sometimes it dies out.”

The three incidents that sent her to the hole don’t include her refusal to board a prison bus headed to a Brooklyn court. She reportedly refused to board the bus twice saying she needed to do her hair, make-up and eat lunch first.

Williams said this too, was a result of Brown’s hearing impairment.

According to Foxy’s manager, councilmember Charles Barron visited Foxy in jail and then called the commissioner himself to explain the rapper’s hearing problem and to request she be taken out of punitive segregation. A medical team reportedly examined her health and found that she does in fact have a serious hearing problem. The investigation is ongoing. (Source)

Really, my girl’s hearing aid has a short battery life? Can we get the Energizer Bunny up in this bitch? I mean, really, my iPod can stay charged for a week but Foxy’s earpiece can’t make it through the night? Isn’t this the same earpiece she told Angie Martinez was made by Gucci?

I wish I had a government patsy and a medical team on call anytime I needed a bootsy ass excuse for acting an ass. I ain’t do my studying tonight because I had a little too much to drink, can I have someone say it’s because I have a chronic thirst?

I also think it would be better if Foxy played up loss of vision instead of hearing. “Exhibit A, your honor: her make-up and weave.”

Just Give Her A Life Sentence Already

23 10 2007

Foxy Brown has been ordered into solitary confinement for 76 days after showing her ass once again at Rikers. Foxy has been getting into physical altercations with other inmates, saying rude things to corrections officers and refusing to cooperate with random drug tests. She will now be locked up in a solo room for 23 hours of the day. (Source)

Can they just give her a life sentence already? I think she’s grateful for the “three hots and a cot” anyway.

Foxy’s Hotcomb Must Have Been Smuggled In Last Week

17 10 2007


Note: This is not her picture from Tuesday. Just a random pic of her looking like The Black Pocohantas. Thank you!

Foxy Brown didn’t pull a Kriss Kross (what ya’ll know about this video?! HA!) this time and made her bus! I wonder if she sat in the back with Big Mabel or upfront with the Lipstick Mafia?

Foxy Brown made it to court Tuesday morning and pleaded not guilty to charges that she threw a cell phone at a woman over an argument about Foxy’s car stereo being too loud.

 

There were reports that the rapper refused several times to board the bus from Rikers Island to a Brooklyn courtroom for her arraignment on Friday – once because her hair and makeup were not completed, another time because she was eating lunch.

 

According to TMZ, Foxy’s lawyer says she was never scheduled for transport to court on Friday, and that’s why she missed the first hearing.

 

The 28-year-old artist arrived to the courthouse Tuesday sans hair weave and dressed in a casual plaid pant outfit, according to reports. Her next court date is in December.

 

The artist is currently serving a one-year sentence for violating probation — skipping her anger management classes and traveling out of the city without permission — in a separate case in Manhattan. (source)

Yayyyy Foxy Bizzle made the bus-izzle!

I wonder if they call her “Big Bad Mama” in jail? She can get her Big Mama Morton on a la Queen Latifah in “Chicago.”

“If you’re good to Foxyyyyyyyyyyyy, Foxy’s good to youuuuuuuuuuuuu!”

Sans weave? Did they really make her walk out without her Sunday-Go-To-Meeting Yaki? I bet you they had to give her extra time in the library so should study her Dr. Suess books to brush up on her rhyming skills for her in-prison release sure to be out on Koch sometime next year.

She should call Shyne and they can do a collabo with shoutouts to AT&T LOL.

OK let me stop, LOL.

Foxy Brown “Missed” the Bus to Court Three Times Today

12 10 2007

Foxy Brown missed the bus from Rikers Island to court today THREE TIMES today because of various nonsensical reasons. She was due in Brooklyn Supreme Court to be arraigned on charges of violating her probation.

Reports stated that Brown missed the first bus because her hair and make up were not ready. She missed the second bus because she had not eaten lunch.

When a third bus came, Brown inexplicably refused to get on board.

As a result, Brown’s court date has been moved to Tuesday (October 16).

If Brown refuses to attend her arraignment on Tuesday, prosecutors may issue a court order allowing correction officers to handcuff her and force her to appear in court next week. (Source)

I’m sure her nutso ass probably thought they were gonna send a Bentley to pick her up. I don’t know why she was bothering with her hair and makeup because she always looks like a Dollar Tree hooker anyway. Big Shug from Cell Block C could probably do a better job on that mess than whoever has been doing it for the past three years. I love Foxy but my girl is a headcase. They are gonna bring her into court in a straight jacket one of these days.

Foxy Isn’t Pregnant

12 09 2007

Foxy Brown is talking out her ass again.

Her manager released a statement today denying that she was pregnant after the rapper was sentenced to a year in jail last week. This news came despite the fact that her lawyers told her probation judge she was expecting and Foxy herself told NY Post reporters she was three months along. (Source)

I think they should tack on another year for this. Stop the madness, Inga.
