Foxy Brown's New Highly Anticipated Album, "Brooklyn's Don Diva," Hits Streets on May 13th, 2008

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 5, 2008) - Just weeks after completing a jail sentence for violating probation, Foxy Brown is set to release her new album, "Brooklyn's Don Diva," on Black Rose Entertainment/KOCH Records on May 13th, 2008.

"Brooklyn's Don Diva" features guest appearances by Dwele, AZ, Lil' Mo, Kira, Graph, DeMarco, Lady Saw and more.

KOCH Records' General Manager Alan Grunblatt comments, "Foxy is the greatest female MC of all time. I've wanted to work with her for years. This album is very much something for the fans. She recorded the vocals before she was incarcerated. We were besieged by so many fan requests that we finished the album while she was in Rikers and rushed it out. She is currently recording new songs and a deluxe version of the album will drop in the fall."

Foxy Brown first made a name for herself after winning a talent contest in her hometown of Brooklyn and was soon featured on tracks by LL Cool J, Nas, Case, Toni Braxton and more. She later joined the hip-hop supergroup The Firm in the late '90s with Nas, AZ and Nature. The group released an album in 1997 titled "The Firm: The Album," which sold over 900,000 units.

Brown released three solo albums: "Ill Na Na" (1996), "Chyna Doll" (1999), and "Broken Silence" (2001) which sold a total of 3 million records and propelled her to stardom. Foxy was the first female rapper to release an album that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with "Chyna Doll."
