Foxy Brown Quits Def Jam

Hip-hop beauty FOXY BROWN has finally parted ways with rap label DEF JAM RECORDS after a long-running feud with ISLAND DEF JAM MUSIC GROUP's boss LYOR COHEN.

Brown's management have confirmed that the HOT SPOT rapper is no longer with Def Jam, but has yet to provide details on her release from the label.

In April (03), Brown appeared on WENDY WILLIAMS' WBLS radio show announcing her wishes to sever ties with the label, after her album ILL NA NA PART 2: THE FEVER was shelved indefinitely.

Foxy told Williams, "(Cohen's) response was, 'Over my dead body am I letting you go. You're stuck.' Verbatim."

During that interview Foxy expressed a desire to work with DR DRE's AFTERMATH label, citing the creative freedom his artists seem to enjoy.

Def Jam and SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS' label BAD BOY announced that they would jointly release albums by 112 and Foxy Brown in February (03), after 112 jumped ship from Bad Boy to Def Jam.

Combs then filed an injunction against the label and announced that he would executive produce Brown's album.

The two resolved the dispute out of court by agreeing to split the profits on both Brown and 112's future releases and feature both label's logos on the releases.

It is not clear how Brown's departure from Def Jam will effect that agreement.
