( 4UMF NEWS ) Foxy Brown Praises Donald Trump:
Move over Stacey Dash. Reclusive rap star Foxy Brown said Tuesday that she is back in the studio, but her next release could be a tribute to Donald Trump.
Brown, a lifelong Democrat, who said she loves Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, said she is giving a big shout out to the billionaire presidential front-runner because she is impressed with his ability to get things done.
“No matter how many people sabotage his campaign, it keeps growing and growing and growing,” Brown told the Daily News.
“I know so many people won’t agree with me and will try to change my mind, but I’m a smart girl. I’m excited … I haven’t been this excited in so long.
“I know people say he’s a racist, but that’s just crazy.”
Brown, 37, didn’t detail the extent of her support, but said she would be doing “a lot” for Trump in the coming months. Earlier, Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, received a key to the city from Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams recognizing her as one of the “Leaders of Tomorrow.”
“She got the key for her music not her politics,” Adams said.
Brown, who broke into the rap game at age 15, and earned platinum honors with her breakthrough “Ill Na Na” album, has been on hiatus for nearly eight years after a medical issue affected her hearing. During some of that time, Brown served a jail stint for violating her probation on a charge involving her alleged attack on two Chelsea manicurists. She was also charged with criminal contempt in 2010 for allegedly mooning a neighbor and throwing a BlackBerry at her.
Brown said her hearing is fine now, and is excited about recording and performing again.
She said she turned down millions of dollars from networks who wanted her to do a reality TV show.
“It didn’t make sense for us,” Brown said. “You don’t see any of the big stars doing that. Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige didn’t run in that direction. They kept their brand intact. We were like, no thank you. That just wasn’t for us.”
