PROJECT IS GETTING CANNED?
I guess there are rumors that Foxy Brown's album is being canned because
of all the bad publicity she's been getting over the last year. Rumors
say Jay-Z is pissed at Foxy's lack of productivity on her album "Black
Roses". One source reveals "The album has been plagued as a
result of Foxy's hearing loss, constant legal woes and horrible publicity.
Regardless, the label has poured tons of money into her project, pushed
the album back four times, and Foxy still hasn't been able to produce
anything but embarrassing editorial features."
