Foxy Brown refuted reports in May saying she made claims that she lost her virginity to Jay-Z when she was just 15 and he was 27, as well as he had previously engaged in gay sex.
In her interview with MTV’s RapFix Live this week, the female rap legend denied those rumors and expressed how ludicrous it would be for her to diss her longtime friend … 15 years later
“When I got a call about this anonymous blogger who wrote… keep in mind, you and everyone else, this wasn’t in TIME magazine, Daily News, People, XXL… it wasn’t an article. It was an anonymous blogger who could be somebody from Wisconsin named Joe Schmoe the Midget, hiding behind [a computer screen],” Foxy said, holding back tears.
“Anybody that knows me knows how much I love Jay. Period. Jay and I come from nothing together. Together. My cousin, Clark Kent… is the reason we’re all on. My blood cousin,” she continued. “Have you ever heard Foxy dissing Jay-Z or Jay-Z dissing Foxy? Ever? So we’re gonna wait fifteen years later, and come out the blue, and start…?”
Foxy came onto the scene at the age of 16, featured on Jay Z’s single, “Ain’t No N****,” which appeared on Hov’s seminal release, Reasonable Doubt.
Regardless of whether the rumors were true or fabricated, Jay addressed them on “Picasso Baby,” off his recent album, Magna Carta… Holy Grail: “I never stuck my cock in the Fox’s box / But damned if I ain’t open Pandora’s box / They try to slander your man on CNN and FOX / My Mirandas don’t stand a chance with cops.”
Later in Foxy’s interview with MTV, she admitted she was surprised to hear Jay address the rumors, but had a theory as to why he did.
“Was I shocked when Jay said the line in ‘Picasso Baby?’ Yes, because we’ve talked about that. We have a history that supersedes music. We know how this business work. We sit back and we laugh at those rumors. We laugh at that. I think he began to feel the pressure because people began to say my age. The age thing. She was fifteen, fourteen. After a while, that gets to a person,” Foy explained.
“The fact that he felt he needed to say that, that means something struck [a chord].”
