Foxy Brown Goes Home To Def Jam

After an emotional departure from The Island Def Jam Music Group in 2002 and a failed venture with Sean Combs’ Bad Boy label, Foxy Brown re-signs to Def Jam as one of Jay-Z’s initial executive moves as president of the label.

Before leaving, Foxy recorded a enormous amount of songs for Def Jam which was to be the double disc set Ill Na Na 2: The Fever.

Since then she completely scrapped the project and started recording her Black Roses LP, which reportedly will include collaborations with Barrington Levy, Dido and Luther Vandross.

While details are still vague on whether or not the signing will be in conjunction with Jay-Z’s rumored S.Carter imprint, her first studio album in five years will be the the first of new releases from Def Jam which will include 112, Kanye West, Mariah Carey, and Memphis Bleek.

The signing comes in light of Jay-Z and Foxy Brown’s much public reconciliation two year ago at Jay-Z’s public Madison Square Garden concert.

Since then, she has appeared on the dysfunctional “The Best Of Both Worlds Tour” and the accompanying album which rocketed to number 1 on the billboard charts within its first week of release.
