Foxy Brown Delays Sophomore Album, Talks Diversity

Foxy Brown has delayed the release date of her new album, “Chyna Doll,” until late January, which the rapper says will give her enough time to make sure that everything on the new record has been done the way she wants it.

On “Chyna Doll,” the follow-up to Foxy’s 1996 debut, “Il Na Na,” Brown diversifies her hip-hop femme fatale style to incorporate contributions from the likes of Fiona Apple. But Brown remains true to her hardcore roots with a new version of N.W.A.’s “Niggaz with Attitude,” which she covers with fellow rappers Mia X and Gangsta Boo, aptly re-naming the track “Bitches With Attitude.”

“This is my second album,” Brown told the MTV Radio Network, “and I have artists such as Fiona Apple and R. Kelly, so it’s really diversified. I mean, it’s still hardcore rap, but it’s to another level.” [28.8 RealAudio]

Foxy Brown’s new album, “Chyna Doll,” is scheduled to be
released on January 26.
