Foxy Brown has revealed that she was recording a joint album with Mary J. Blige, but that the album was scrapped due to the loss of the rapper's hearing.
For the first time, Foxy has publicly revealed details of the record which was entitled 'The Best Of Both Girls,' and says that the pair had taken inspiration from Jay-Z and R Kelly's 2002 and 2004 joint effort. Speaking to The Boombox, Foxy said: "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.'"
Revealing why this album failed to come to fruition, Foxy said: "Mary's like a big sister to me, and in the middle of recording those records, I lost all my hearing."
The 'Ill Na Na' rapper explains that Mary's 2005 hit 'Enough Cryin'' was supposed to feature rapping from her, however, when Foxy was unable to finish recording, Mary decided to lay down the bars herself. "Mary had enough respect to say, 'Listen, before I go get another rap b**ch 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."
Foxy has not released a studio album since her 2001 'Broken Silence.'
