Rapper Foxy Brown Released From Prison, Set To Prep Album Brooklyn’s Don Diva
The female rapper and Brooklyn native known most for her gangsta but sexy hip-hop style, Foxy Brown, born Inga Fung Marchand, was released Friday afternoon after serving just eight months of a 12-month prison sentence, for a number of probation violations, at the Rose Singer Center for women at Rikers Island in New York.
Brown, 29, was met by a crowd of fans and paparazzi and an entourage which arrived riding luxury wheels including Rolls Royceâ€™s and SUVâ€™s, which Foxy chose the Rolls-Royce Phantom accompanied by security when making her exit.
Before leaving though, Foxy spoke with media about her time in prison.
“I cried coming out. I didn’t cry coming in. There’s a big difference. I believe that God put me there for a reason, incarceration is serious. He (God) got me through,” Foxy told Access Hollywood.
The rapper continued that she “feels good” and glad to be back home.
The rapper was arrested for throwing her cell phone at a neighbor and getting into a fight with an employee at a beauty supply store.
Foxy Brown will now reportedly be doing promotional work for her upcoming album “Brooklyn’s Don Diva” which is expected to be out May 13 as well as possibly working on a VH1 reality show.
Brown is scheduled to appear back in court May 5.
