Album Review

Foxy Brown is up to her old tricks on her third album, Broken Silence. She is still the undisputed queen of materialism, evident on "Fallin'," where she drops names of countless designer brands, rapping about Range Rovers, Gucci, Prada, etc. She is still taking aim at legions of triflin' ex-friends, including other rappers, ex-boyfriends, etc., etc. Brown is as hood and street as ever but, on this album, she extends her musical wings and embraces other styles to fine effect, making this her most entertaining and musically adventurous album to date. Reggae and dancehall influences abound, most notably on the terrific single "Oh Yeah" and "Tables Will Turn." The most interesting song, however, is "Hood Scriptures," which, like Jay-Z's "Big Pimpin'," incorporates Eastern influences, adding a whole new dimension to hip-hop possibilities. "The Letter" is a sparse, mini-masterpiece, where Brown apologizes to her mother (in what could be interpreted as a thinly veiled suicide note) for the hell she's put her through, accompanied by a tinkling piano and Ron Isley's angelic vocals. Brown gets as sensitive and introspective as is possible, while still remaining as explicit as ever, as she reminisces over her defunct relationship with rapper Kurupt on "Saddest Day." Yes, Foxy Brown is street and she is the center of her world's rumor mill, but this album, ripe with tasteless materialism, explicit sexual references, and violent raps, can honestly be called a musical step forward, and is a compelling testament to the life of a girl from the hood. ~ Jose F.

Customer Reviews

Foxy Brown it tighter than Lil Kim.

This is "Foxy's" first and best LP, this is the reason "Big" and "Jay" wanted Foxy Brown. The quality of the LP is sick and better put together than her rival Kim, production wise, "please people Foxy had Def Jam money and you can't beat the with a bat. I really like the Cd "Gota get you home tonight is a instant classic, and I'll be is the sh$t....other song's like Foxy bells are nice too. this is a nice rap to Cd.

"They say I'm 730, pretty, but I rap too dirty." (Foxy Brown from 730, Track 6)

This is officially the best female rap CD ever made! There's no holds bar on this CD as Foxy adresses Lil' Kim and all her other haters. However, she doesn't spend too much time knockin them because they're not worth her time and she's better than that. I'd like to recommend a good song on the album, but every song is just amazing. Foxy's flow is just unbelievable! The presence of her swagger and cadence make every song a classic along with her hard rhymes. Saying she spits fire would only undermine the fantastic job she did on this CD. Words can't describe how good this CD is, so you'll just have to buy and listen to it for yourself. Foxy raises the standard in the female rap industry once again, but now I don't think anyone else will ever reach this level. Hey, it's not easy being #1. Foxy, I love you ma!

The Heroine of Hip Hop

Fox solidifies herself as the illest female to ever pick up a mic on this album. It is raw, raunchy, and real. Fox shows she is not just hood for the public like a lot of others artists. She also shows that her flow and lyrical skills are on par or better than male and female emcees alike. Bravo Fox.
