Incarcerated rapper, Foxy Brown, announced Thursday (October 4) the launch of her new official website, FreeFoxyBrown.com, where she says she will keep her fans updated up-to-the minute with updates on her, music from her forthcoming album and more.
The 28-year-old rapper (real name: Inga Marchand) is said to be personally involved in the content show on the newly launched site, and even that fans can write to her behind bars through it as well.
“I devoted my career to building an affinity with my fans who have supported me unflinchingly and no barbed wire fence or prison wall will stop that,” she said in a statement. “I am in great spirits and very focused, and needed a forum to communicate to the people.”
Foxy Brown was sentenced to serve one year in jail back in early September, as a result of a fight with two manicurists in a New York City salon dating back to August 2004.
Since sentencing the rapper has stated that she has no problem serving her time and that she’s fine.
“This is just a temporary situation,” Foxy following her sentencing. “I made my bed and have no problem lying in it. My will is steady. What doesn’t kill me will only make me stronger. I think there are greater injustices in America that require our immediate attention, like what’s going on in Jena, Louisiana. I will not surrender, I’m fine, free Jena Six!”
Despite being behind bars, Foxy will release Brooklyn’s Don Diva, her first new album since 2001’s Broken Silence, on November 20th.
