2001–2003: Broken Silence

In 2001, after two years of artistic silence, Brown released Broken Silence.

The track gave "props" to her hometown, Brooklyn, and famous rappers such as The Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z. Def Jam decided to release a music video for the record, which had a similarly urban and home-grown low-budget feel, and was made as if from a home video camcorder. The second single from the album "Oh Yeah", which featured her then boyfriend Jamaican dancehall artist Spragga Benz, marked Brown's debut in the reggae/dance hall genre of music. The album debuted on the Billboard Charts at #5, selling 131,000 units its first week, and 553,000 copies to date.

Power 105.1 controversy

On November 22, 2006 Foxy Brown appeared at New York radio station Power 105.1 for an interview with morning show hosts Egypt and Donnell "Ashy" Rawlings. As the interview began to air, Ashy made remarks and took several shots at Foxy's recent hearing loss. Through the rest of the interview Brown refused to answer to Ashy, excluding him from her conversation with Egypt. The interview became acrimonious when Ms. Brown was asked by Egypt to explain rumors that she had been dropped from her record label. Ms. Brown switched stories, first insisting she was still "signed to Jay" and then contradicting that by saying she was the one who "initiated leaving Def Jam ... they could never drop [Foxy Brown]" The DJs then asked the rapper questions including details on her recent conviction for assault, but she declined to answer, berating the DJs for being "disrespectful" and reminding Egypt that, "I told you when I called you what type of questions I wanted for my interview." At this point, Egypt ended the interview, stating: "Foxy, you leave the room ... this interview is over" [31]. A sound clip of the interview, during which Brown leaves the New York radio station, then surfaced on various blogs and websites. is the 326th day of the year (327th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Date of birth

In the artist's own MySpace Account, her date of birth is shown as 6 September 1979. However, the police report of her arrest in 15 February 2007 [32] shows her date of birth to be 6 September 1978. The accuracy of the police report has not been disputed by Foxy Brown or her representatives, who assert, nonetheless, that her year of birth is 1979. Foxy Brown herself has added to the controversy when, in the DVD entitled Sub-0, recorded in 2006, she stated that she is only 26, but went on to state that, while she has been in the hip hop industry since the age of 14, she has been in the industry for 14 years.
