Album Review

After appearing as a guest on a number of albums, most notably LL Cool J, Foxy Brown finally delivered her debut album, Ill Na Na, in late 1996. On her cameos, the teenage rapper rhapsodized about her three obsessions — fashion, sex, and the mafia — and all three dominate the discourse on Ill Na Na. Taken on their own terms, any of those lyrics could get rather tedious, but Foxy Brown has a sexy, assured delivery that makes her superficial preoccupations seductive. Furthermore, the album benefits greatly from the production efforts of the TrackMasterz, who give the music a sleek, contemporary edge that makes even the weaker tracks quite listenable. Foxy Brown is also assisted by cameos by Mobb Deep's Havoc, Jay-Z, Method Man, and Kid Capri, among others, which gives the album star power, but it doesn't necessarily need it — she has enough charisma to steal the show.

Customer Reviews

This Is Real Rap.

Foxy Brown is one big time rapper. This album dropped when she was just sixteen.

"Fox Boogie Brown is BAD as HELL..." (Foxy Brown from Foxy's Bells, Track 3)

It's hard to believe that she was only 16 when she made this CD, which is a certified classic. Foxy Brown delivers quick sizzlin' flows on this CD, she simply spits straight fire! It becomes quickly apparent that Foxy has a very broad vocabulary as she raps about her loyalty to The Firm and being the hottest female rapper among other things in a very profound way. It's easy to see why this record went platinum twice and was at the top of the Billboard Charts for so long. I hate when Foxy is constantly compared to Lil' Kim because both rappers have different styles, I just happen to prefer Foxy because she raps about more than just sex all while still keeping her appeal. Once again Foxy proves why she's the #1 female rapper. I love you ma!

The female version of Jay-Z

Back then Foxy Brown was only 15 when she did this album and surpising it became a classic.Her rhymes are different than a normal female rapper.Very versitile and lots of energy she put on this the album She has her sexy ladies' anthem single Get Me Home.then callbos with Jay-Z in I'll be.but the best song on the Album is the Promise.where she's at her best and most serious. but Anyway if You really love Hip-Hop then get this album trust me You'll love it

Before she had released any material at all, Foxy Brown appeared on several 1995-1996 platinum singles, including her first credit, LL Cool J's "I Shot Ya," as well as Total's "No One Else" remix of Jay-Z's "Ain't No...," Toni Braxton's "You're Makin' Me High" remix, and Case's "Touch Me, Tease Me." The incredible success led to a major-label bidding war at the beginning of 1996, and by March, Brown had signed with the Def Jam label as another in the ranks of young and hard female rappers.
