Foxy Brown Mentions Scrapped Joint Album with Mary J. Blige

Published: Monday 29th Aug 2011 by Rashad

The success of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch the Throne’ has incited many-an-artist to express desires (or forthright plans) to follow suit.  Interestingly, Jay’s protege, Brooklyn’s don diva Foxy Brown, caused quite the commotion with mention of her own joint project – a failed duet album with Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige.  Said to have been titled ‘Best of Both Girls’ – a play off the Jay-Z/R.Kelly ‘Best of Both Worlds’ album, the Ill Na Na shared news on the project and what caused its halt.

Find out what Ms. Marchand said after the jump:

The Boombox reports:

“People don’t know, me and Mary J. Blige recorded five records for an album called ‘The Best of Both Girls,’ like Jay and R. Kelly did ‘The Best of Both Worlds,'” Foxy announced, before revealing the unfortunate circumstance that derailed their recording process. “Mary’s like a big sister to me, and in the middle of recording those records, I lost all my hearing.”

According to Fox, Blige’s 2005 single ‘Enough Cryin’,” which introduced the R&B diva’s rapping alias Brook-Lynn, was originally intended to feature Foxy, but due to the loss of her hearing, she was unable to record her part.

“When you hear Mary in the video like, ‘You turned your back and back I came running, but the simple fact is that you ain’t want me,’ that was me,” Foxy continued to explain. “Mary had enough respect to say, ‘Listen, before I go get another rap bitch to do your part, I’ma call myself Brook-Lyn and I’ma learn your part and I’ma go in and rap it for you.'”

Do you want to hear a joint album from Foxy B. and Mary J?

    yaaa HELLZZZZ NOO!!

    I would like a Mary J. & Mariah joint Album – That would be dope. (More powerhouse, Jay-Z/Kayne Male Kings of Hip-Hop & Proper Peers >> Mary J. & Mariah Queens of R&B/Soul & Been in the game for relatively the same time frame.)

    Sorry Foxy, Mary J.’s Class, girl.

    I think this is false I don’t think Mary J mess wit Fox liek that cuz her and Kim is liek BFF ‘s so I highly doubt this claim!!

  9. LindseyMari August 29, 2011

    I would’ve expected a Lil Kim & Mary record before this, but I suppose it sounds possible. I don’t think it would’ve been successful if it had been released though. That’s an odd pairing.

    Lying ass Foxy.

  11. The King August 30, 2011

    I think it would be hot…Mary is Hip Hop/Soul and Foxy is Hip Hop.

  12. YOOSONDALOOSE August 30, 2011

    Foxy ain’t hot. Sorry but she has never been. And Mary would have looked cheap with a joint album!

  13. RHI RHI IS QUEEN August 30, 2011


  14. jamir21:bey,rihanna,brit,gaga,nicki >>>>> KERI ! August 30, 2011

    Mary is not doing an album with an washed up old rapper from 1996 !

  15. Kevbo August 30, 2011

    somebody needs to smack this girl upside the head!

  16. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 30, 2011

    Well, this album would be recorded around 2004, I guess and Foxy was still hot back then.So, why are you all SURE that she’s lying??
    @YELLOW GORILLAH You really think that a woman losing her hearing is funny???*cringes*.What can I say?Anyway…she temporarily lost her hearing for 1-2 years, but now she’s ok.

    Foxy Brown is such a liar, she is delusional. Mary j blige said jay-z wrote the rap for foxy,cause she was supposed to be on “enough cryin” but mary did it instead

  18. Mr. DeBonair2U August 30, 2011

    I would luv to see this album fox &the mjb would if killed the game

  19. Derrick August 30, 2011

    She is lying. In the credits it says the song/her rap was written by Jay-Z. In fact, all of Mary’s songs with raps were written by Jay. Foxy…have a SEAT!

  20. Jane Doe August 30, 2011

    Mary would have put Kim on the record, but I think she was still locked up at the time Mary was recording The Breakthrough. Mary did say that..

  21. Mickie August 30, 2011

    Wasn’t here a period where Lil Kim and Mary weren’t speaking to eachother? Somewhere back in 2004. They made up before Kim went to jail

    How desperate is she to get the lime light… Bless her.

  24. Mumford August 30, 2011

    Crazy how this site is always late on real artists like Mary J. Blige , but are always the first when it comes to cheap acts such as Rihanna or Beyonce..

  25. Jessica August 30, 2011

    I guess people forgot about Case- 1996 video Touch Me Tease Me for the Nutty Professor OST Mary and Foxy did the backgrown vocals for that song and video. I believe what Foxy said, but because of her loss of hearing and all the other drama, she didn’t move forward. Before talking ish, DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!

  26. Kimberly J August 31, 2011

    you gotta remember foxy was signed to Def jam at that time so alot was in the works, and Mary also stated this on 106 and park when she premiered “enough crying”
