Throwback Friday: Foxy Brown – I’ll Be (f. Jay-Z)
Am I aware Foxy dropped a “comeback single” that makes Shyne sound great? Yes. Instead, I’ll remember Foxy for the days when female rap wasn’t run by one woman but was a competitive slot. Or when the greatest ghostwriters of all-time kept a lot of these female’s careers afloat.
Ill Na Na went platinum I think, lead by this single here which has 90s dripping all over it in terms of production by incorporating a little sample of a classic record, some Mafioso talk and of course a cameo from Jay-Z when Shawn Corey was viewed as the underdog.
