Foxy Brown

General Manager and EVP of KOCH Records, Alan Grunblatt, seems to think so.

Speaking on the upcoming release of Foxy’s long-awaited new album through KOCH, now titled Brooklyn’s Don Diva, Grunblatt said:

“Foxy Brown is the greatest female MC of all time. Her fans are clamoring for new music and we are here to deliver.”

Foxy Brown made headlines last weekend when she was sentenced by a New York judge to serve one year in prison, after a number of charges were brought against her.

Speaking out about her incarceration, Foxy says, “This is just a temporary situation. I made my bed and have no problem lying in it.

“My will is steady,” she went on to say. “I think there are greater injustices in America that require our immediate attention, like what’s going on in Jena, Louisiana. I will not surrender, I’m fine, free Jena Six!”

Brooklyn’s Don Diva is set to drop on November 20 through KOCH Records.

    How can she be considered the best when you have a multitude of writers penning their lives away for her?
    Shez not beleivable at all,the only thing she has is delivery,that’s all.
    Lauryn is out! She raps 1/20,ppl give her 2 much life

  • SyntaxE says:

    Some of yall mention rappers like Khia and Trina, “pardon me I had to laugh at that” LMFAOOOO what the fuck’s wrong with u… I don’t think Fox is the best but she is the GREATEST imo.. Those are two different things.. Of course there’s probably a better female rapper somewhere in the streets of New York, but how can she be the GREATEST when no one has ever heard of her, u know? Fox has it all, total package.

  • JESUS says:

    WHY THE FUCK ARE THESE SAME FAGGOTS CLAIMING FOXY GOT WRITERS CLAIMING KIM,KHIA,TRINA IS THE BEST.

    ARE YOU DUMB FAGS MAD??

    EVERYONE IN RAP KNOWS FOX BEEN PENNING HER SHIT SINCE BROKEN SILENCE.STEP INTO 2007.

    ONLY A HOMOSEXUAL ASS MALE WITH FEMININE TENDICIES WILL EVER CLAIM LIL KIM,KHIA,,TRINA COME EVEN CLOSE TO THE LYRICAL ABILITY OF FOXY BROWN.

    NO FOXY IS NOT THE BEST I GOTTA GO WITH LAURYN HILL.HOWEVER FOXY BROWN IS YOUR RAPPERS FAVORITE RAPPER.SHES ALWAYS THE LEAD NOMINEE IN POLLS OF THE BEST FEMALE RAPPER.SHES ALWAYS THE ONE MENTIONED BY OTHER HIP HOP MALE ARTIST AS THE ILLEST FEMALE RAPPER WHO IS HARDCORE.

    FOXY BROWN IS A FUCKING BEAST.LIL KIM COULD NEVER EVER SPIT SHIT LIKE OPEN BOOK OR RUN DEM.REMY IS NICE BUT SHE LACKS VERSATILITY THAT APPEALS TO THE MASSES.

    LETS BE REAL LIL KIM BETTER THAN FOXY?? IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE THAT STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER BECAUSE YOU KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT HIP HOP PLACING OLE BUBBLE GUM ASS KIM OVER FOXY.EVEN BACK DURING KIMS HARDER DAYS FOXY WAS ALWAYS LYRICALLY BETTER THAN HER.

    IN FACT JUNIOR MAFIA AND FOXY THEMSELVES ALONG WITH MRS WALLACE SAID IT WAS FOXY BIGGIE WANTED TO TRADE KIM WITH,WITH JAY-Z AND SAID QUITE”"YOUR GIRL IS A BEAST ON THE MIC”"”

    LAURYN HILL IS STILL ALIVE SO SHE TAKES THE CAKE AS THE BEST.HOWEVER THE HARDEST FEMALE RAPPER WITH HOOD LYRICS IS NO DOUBT FOXY BROWN AND THATS WITHOUT A DOUBT.

  • JESUS says:

    LISTEN TO FOXYS NEW SONG MR.DJ

    THE RADIO WAS DROPPING BOMBS ON IT.

    THAT SONG IS THE REASON WHY PEOPLE CONSIDER HER THE BEST OR ONE OF THE BEST.

  • YUNGIN says:

    “THEY KEEP ON TELLING ME WHEN I SPIT ITS LIKE A LYRICAL FELONY COMPETITION IS A DISTANT MEMORY”…”BITCHES STAY SHOOK OF PRESENCE THEY WALK EASY ACTING ALL THIRSTY HOPE TO NOT IRK ME TITS IS STILL PERKY SKIN IS STILL HERSHEY” FOXY SAY SHYT THAT IS UNBELIEVABLY HARD THATS WHY EVERYONE WANTS HER TO HAVE A GHOSTWRITER BUT WE ALL KNOW SHE DONT….SHE GOT IT LOCKED AS BEST BECAUSE SHE IS THE BEST TO DO ANYTHING SHE ATTEMPTS SHE IS A VERSATILE ARTIST THAT WOULD NEVER LEAVE HER FANS BORED SHE CHANGES WITH TIME VOICES ACCENTS ETC FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSE…AND AS FAR AS HER PERFORMING GO WHENEVA FOXY ON STAGE THE AUDIENCE IS GOING CRAZY SHE WORKS THE CROWD BETTER THEN ANY OF THE OTHER BITCHES

  • Coolio says:

    I have to agree with most of the comments. Fox is the greatest but only after Lauren Hill. She is so versatile too. People need to stop this ghostwriter bullshit and give credit where credit is due. No other female come close in my book. Rah Digga maybe next but Fox is definitley the greatest after Lauren Hill.

  • Mike says:

    FOXY IS THE BEST FEMALE MC TO TOUCH THE MIC. SHE HAS A RAW TALENT THAT SOME PEOPLE JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND. IT’S SORTA LKE SHE’S ACTUALLY KILLIN THE MIC AS IF IT WAS A PERSON. IT’S SO HARD TO EXPLAIN BUT REAL RECOGNIZE REAL, ANS SHE’S REAL BITCH WHO STANDS HER GROUND, AND SPEAKS WHAT SHE LIVES. SHE’LL LET YOU KNOW SHE CAN BE A BITCH BUT A WOMAN AS WELL……

  • bj says:

    Foxy is the best hands down

  • Ryan says:

    Yea she is, she has this candence that no one else has. her music speaks for herself.

  • Carla says:

    Foxy Brown is DA ILLEST BITCH in MUSIC. Fuck rap! She puts so much emotion into it that I consider her another Mary (without all the screaming like Mary does). Foxy Brown is a LEGEND

  • yessyr says:

    foxy do not have ghost writers for yall that keep saying that lil kim does. foxy is the best her music speak for it self SHES THE GREATEST PONIT BLAKE

  • thenavi says:

    FOX IS THE GREATEST! HER FREESTYLES GIVE ME CHILLS. SHE ALWAYS SAYS THE SHIT THAT MAKES YOUR JAW DROP. SHE’S SPITS HARD AND BOOGIE IS THE HOTTEST OUT OF ALL THE RAP BITCHES. SOME OF THESE CHICKS BE LOOKIN’ ROUGH! FOX TOOK HER CROWN WITH THE BROKEN SILENCE ALBUM. AND ALL THE SHIT IN BETWEEN THAT AND WHATS GONNA HAPPEN ON NOV. 20TH HAS JUST BEEN A BIG TEASE. FOXY WILL DELIVER!!!

    THAT’S A PROMISE TO ALL YOU HATERS!

  • vinny. says:

    Once she drops that album she will be the hottest female rapper again! Her track record is crazy and she keeps you on ya toes, theres somethin about foxy.. she has it all. shes pretty, she can spit street, she can speak intelligent.

  • vinny. says:

    oh and i dont want to forget to say that all the females you guys are talking about (except mc lyte & lauryn hill) have said at one point foxy was one of thier favs.

    trina said it on the bet red carpet, shawnna said it on an allhiphop interview, khia said it “fox is a diva” on her freeestyle. even eve looks up to foxy if you listen to her recent music with sean paul that raggae style with hiphop came from foxy. lil kim said it years ago before the beef.

    foxy is the one!!

  • Babs Bunny says:

    Foxy Brown is not the best. Kosh is just tryna promote her new album.
    Foxy Brown had Jay-Z ghostwrite Ill Na Na, Nas ghostwrote for her on The Firm, We wont even list the numerous ghostwriters on Chyna Doll, and R&B star named Red-Handed ghostwrote Broken Silence. You cant be considered one of the best when you’ve had ghostwriters throught your whole career on every album. MC Lyte is The Greatest go buy her albums before you discredit her. Lauren Hill comes after MC Lyte but its kinda hard with her cuz she only had that 1 good album, Queen Latifah’s better than Foxy, and there are a few others that come before Foxy. And whoever said that Khia is better than Foxy, you need to step into reality…..
    Koch can go slap themselves really hard for saying such a rediculous statement like that too ………

  • harlem_heaven says:

    who really give a damn about ghost writers @ the end of the it about who delivers the product….FOXY could rap a nusery rhyme and it would be beliveable….let not forget the 3 queens LATIFAH didnt write LADIES FIRST, JAY-Z wrote 4 QUEEN PEN & we all know BIGGIE wrote HARD CORE 4 LIL KIM……each one brings something different to the table…so who’s really the best, there all good @ what they do, witch is entertain us…..

  • harlem_heaven says:

    oops…that 1st line should have been this….who really cares about ghost writers @ the end of the day it’s about who delivers the product…Foxy could rap a nursey rhyme and it would be beliveable, her delivery is STRONG!

  • Coolio says:

    fOX IS DEFINITLEY THE GREATEST! People should chat bullshit about ghostwriters when they really don’t know what they are talking about. So what people wrote SOME songs for her when she was 16-19 years of age. We are in 2007 now? So stop living in the past and start living in the now. But if people wanna call her out cus she had some help sometime in her career when she was just a TEENAGER then you mioght as well call out most of the other rapchicks who had help like:

    MC Lyte
    Lil’ Kim
    Queenpen
    Queen Latifah
    Monie Love
    Salt ‘N’ Pepa
    Da Brat
    Charli Baltimore
    Trina
    Roxane Shante…….. I could go on. There’s probably more I don’t know about.

    See my point? So when when people talk about that crap they should tarnish other rappers with the same brush and not just leave it on Foxy’s doorstep. At least she’s honest about that shit. Foxy has the best delivery and is the most versatile rapper and often outdoes male rappers on tracks. How many females can do that?

    Maybe only Rah Digga & Lauren Hill. Fox is the illest in my book, right after Lauren Hill.

  • Andre says:

    Foxy is the GREATEST OF ALL TIME to put it simple. People on this blog saying Remy (blah), Trina (really?), Khia (you can’t be serious), Mia X( has she even released material that would qualify her, Rah Digga (your kidding right!), MC Lyte may have been hot and the best in 89′ but that lyrical content says nothing for present time. As for Queen Pen (I almost fell on the floor with that one) this is why I’m glad she’s not releasing any more albums. And Lauryn Hill has said it herself…”she is not a rapper and she doesn’t play into the names she is a lyricist, which are two totally different things. Damn no love for stEVE or Jacki Hoe huh? As for the ghostwriters…name one artist who hasn’t had material written for them at one point or another, if you believe it then your fooling yourself, record companies don’t want to hear the shit Trina comes up with on her own, they don’t want to hear what Lil Kim can write on her own, because that does not sell records, money, sex, clothes, drugs, and hood life do… and for that we have to blame ourselves. And to the person who said who’s waiting on a Foxy ablum add me to the list of others on this blog who is patiently waiting.

  • Andre says:

    Have any of you truly listened to her music, not the songs you hear on the radio but her actually music, where she is saying concious things. We are glad to build a person up to tear them back down. And what does her being dark have to do with her being the best of all time. We never question how Kim’s complexion has changed since her first album or why Eve is suddenly 500 lbs lighter. By far look at any other chick in the rap game and tell me who has made it this far without releasing any material (studio albums) in more than 6 years and still gets media coverage and hosts events like she has? Latifah doesn’t even rap anymore she’s making Jazz albums. Pen is writing wack ass books, Charlie Baltimore is somewhere prepping for her role in Powder 2, Lyte? If you believe that shit your lyte as a rock. Give the chick a listen before you dismiss her.

  • niece says:

    HELL NOOOOOOOO PLEASE FOR REAL OK??????????????

  • nopola says:

    Ain’t no chick better than Fox

  • soharlem says:

    Fox is the best hands down and yall know it. Stop hatin

  • Justaminute says:

    Well I did like her when she first evolved but then she just left the scene. If she is not the greatest female rapper of all time she does take the title of being the craziest B of all times. Well you know with all the drama and stuff she came here to Miami and got into it with the owner of a beauty supply store about some bonding glue!!! It is only 99 cents ! I would have given her mine.

  • SushiKing says:

    Yo, people keep saying that Lauryn Hill only had one CD and I admit I didnt really like the unplugged thing but she RIPPED every verse on the Fugees Bootleg and B-Sides CD. Alot of people never heard that one. Remy Martin could go for the crown if she gets her shit together. Remy got mad potential I heard her spittin flames on mix CDs and her verse on that Kay Slay 7 Deadly Venoms was fukkin crazy. But at the end of the day gotta respect MC Lyte and Latifah, even though Latifah is doing the Hollywood thing now and she’s all grown up, plus she thick as hell, and I LIKE THAT.

  • SushiKing says:

    I think we all have different ideas of what the “greatest” means. Some think its record sales, others say rhymes alone, some think its versatility some think its crossover appeal. Personally, I picture it like this. If all of the female MCs were in a cipher spittin with no studio, no instrumentals, no producers, who would be the last one standing?

  • lolo says:

    To me Lauryn Hill is the best i am talking album sales, cross over appeal, influence, versatility, her rhymes, lyrics due to her social and political consciousness. To me Foxy Brown and Lil Kim are just glorified strippers with their weak lyrics telling us how much they get paid for laying in the shade and dropping designer names in their songs as if their lives is dependant on it. By the way the Fugees Score sold more than 20 million copies, the Miseducation more than 18 million and the Unplugged was not a flop it sold 5 million copies which means it went platinum, to me it did very well considering that her voice was raspy and there was no band. One song from the album called the Mystery on Inequity was nominated for a Grammy and sampled by Kanye West on his 1s album “All Fall Down” featuring Celina Johnson. Lauryn also writes her own songs to compare her to Foxy and Lil Kim is really stupid and sound so uneducated. None of these ladies mentioned have nothing on Lauryn lyrically. She has not realesed a studio album in 9 years but we are still talking about her to show how much influence she had and still has. What influential/intellectual album has Foxy Brown and Lil Kim produced?

  • The’re many good female MC’s…But I really think its time for som new ones.
    For example Gin from the Boogie G Funk.
    She’s a pretty and inteligent woman. She deserves a chance.
    Check out the video WORK HARD on YouTube.
    Than u understand what I mean.

  • Will says:

    I PERSONALLY D0NT THINK DAT SH3 ISZ DA B3ST FEMAL3 RAPP3R ALIVE..BUT SH3 HAS HAD MANY COLLABOS WIT SUM OF HIP HOP’S GREATS INCLUDING JAY Z, BIGGIE, N NAS 2 BRING H3R CL0SE 2 DAT LEV3L

  • Babs Bunny says:

    Foxy has never collabed with Biggie. I havent seen one. She does have a good flow, but not the best delivery, she bites KIM, SHYNE, JAY in all her raps. Her lyrics are shitty when she writes them herself, you can tell when she writes her own shit, cuz she says the same thing. MC LYTE IS THE BEST.. Period Foxy could only compte with LYTE when JAYZ was writing her shit. And Jay was still writing for her in 2005 w/Come Fly With Me….
    Remy would destroy Foxy in a battle. Thats why FOXY backed down from REMY when she challenged her. You know its true, quit fronting !

  • Real says:

    I think the women from Crime Mob is one of the best female rappers right now. They can other recent female rappers dinner right now. They r underrated.

  • Aussie Teenager says:

    Foxy Brown has been doing it for ages she stated sexual and then she started to rap whats she believes and what hsed been through lil kims still rapping about power sex and respect thats not good just saying it u gotta feel it. i waish khia from tampa and foxy do a rap togther

  • Blowitup says:

    LOL ewwww SHUT THE HELL UP..why does it ALWAYS turn into a fox and kim thing? LOl honestly get your mind right..whether big said back in the day that he wanted fox it STILL wouldnt matter..because fifteen years later look where they ended up..Kim surpassed foxy by far…grammy,5mics,out sold her, first to go multi plat, first to have a #1 hit on the billboard, influenced female rap culturue by incorporating fashion into it’s “swag”,7#1 hit singles, 15 top 10 and twenty..been on more features than any female rapper in history..LOL all fox has is that ONE accomplishment…opening her album at #1..and ironically thats the album she stole kims flow on..chyna doll..that statement has been made by her OWN fans..anyway thats not the point..nor foxy OR kim is the “best” female rapper..HOWEVER..kim is DEFINITELY better then foxy..and the success of each of the artists is there to prove that.

  • zeen says:

    AMEN..i agree..foxy has always bited off kim when it came to rhymes and style..she bites off of kim,jay z,nas etc
