Fighting back tears, Foxy Brown sat on the “RapFix Live” sofa Wednesday (August 14) and shared her side of the story about rumors that have surrounded her relationship with former partner in rhyme Jay Z and the now infamous “Fox’s box” mention on Magna Carta Holy Grail’s “Picasso Baby.”
“Was I shocked when Jay said the line in ’Picasso Baby’? Yes because we’ve talked about that. We have a history that supersedes music,” Foxy said on RapFix. “I think he began to feel the pressure because people were saying my age, the age thing…15, 14 and after a while that gets to a person. The Jay I know, the Shawn I know never comes out of character. So for that…and that’s my point, that’s where the tears came from earlier because people don’t understand that it does affect people more than you think. That fact that he felt he needed to say that, that means that something struck something. At some point, it was just like, enough.
The salacious rumor that started it all was the report that the Ill Na Na MC allegedly trashed her “I’ll Be” guest star as a gonorrhea-infected “tranny chaser,” which she denied via TMZ.
“It wasn’t an article, it was an anonymous blogger who could be somebody from Wisconsin who could be Joe Schmo the Midget hiding behind a crazy,” she said. “Anybody that knows me knows how much I love Jay. Period. Jay and I come from nothing, together. Together. My cousin Clark Kent, we’re gonna be all the way real, Clark Kent is the reason we are all on and that is my blood cousin. We’ve never heard anything like that. Have you ever heard Foxy dissin’ Jay or Jay dissin’ Foxy? Ever? So we’re gonna wait 15 years later and just come out the blue. Whatever was said it was horrible. I mean, just horrible things were said. I can sit back and say and I’m a blogger and people believe it. It’s scary, it’s crazy.”
Despite the swirling negativity, Foxy hopes that she and Jay can one day collaborate again on a track, now that she’s back in the studio working on her new album, which she hopes to drop around Christmas.
