Happy Birthday to one of the illest rappers to ever do it, Inga Marchand, better known as, Foxy Brown. I have always been a fan of Foxy, but it was not until last year that I really started to dig into her music and realize how amazing of a rapper she is. And it is not only Foxy's music that attracts me to her, but it is also her personality. She has been often seen as one of the most controversial rappers, but I find her to be a very interesting and strong woman. From her outspoken and sassy ways, to her Trinidadian roots, to her one of a kind style; so mysterious and different, yet her own...And that is what I love about her. She has always been in a league of her own, never apologizing for who she is. Something that is also interesting about Foxy is that although she may rap about having diamonds, to rolling in Benzes and totting guns, she always has songs on her albums that are true to the soul. Songs where she talks about her insecurities, how stardom has been a blessing and a curse, how she has dealt with being a dark-skinned Black woman to the troubles that young woman in our society have to face. Foxy has a very hardcore persona, but maintains her femininity with the honesty that she portrays in her music and who she is a woman. And although she is over-looked and very underrated as a rapper, once you really get to know Foxy through her music, you learn to love Inga.
And with that being said, I am going to post some of Foxy's more deeper and meaningful songs that I KNOW the masses have not heard just so you can get a feel for this girl...Because she goes IN in so many ways. Enjoy the music guys! Peace ♥
