Nearly 20 years after Jay Z released his Foxy Brown-assisted single “Ain’t No N****,” he’s become a living legend and arguably the biggest star in the genre. The song is widely considered the song that helped break Jay, and launch his career.
During an interview with DJ Superstar Jay on Shade 45, Foxy recalled the song, also agreeing that it made Jay’s career.
“Jay knows that that’s the record that made him,” the female rap legend said. “Serious, we all know that. And that’s a huge and iconic record for him, but he kept it going. He kept busting his guns…”
As the interview continued, Foxy also spoke on her relationship with both Jay Z and his former rival Nas, comparing her relationship with both to that of a woman with a husband and a side jump-off, but refused to reveal which rapper fits each title.
“It’s so much the people don’t even know. It’s like having a husband and a side jump-off and they both know it about each other. You just have to finagle the whole situation.”
