FOXY BROWN DISCOVERS A WAY TO REACH OUT TO HER FANS BEHIND BARS.

Looks like Foxy Brown has just figured out a way to keep her ear to the streets while behind bars on Rikers Island. The tiny, temper-tantrum titan has launched a new Web site, FreeFoxyBrown.com, that is designed to keep fans updated with her latest news, as well as allow folks to send messages to the rapper while she's on lockdown at Rikers Island. "I devoted my career to building an affinity with my fans who have supported me unflinchingly and no barbed wire fence or prison wall will stop that," Brown said in a statement. "I am in great spirits and very focused, and needed a forum to communicate to the people."

Foxy, born Inga Marchand, was personally involved in crafting the Web site, which allows fans to hear new tracks from her upcoming CD, Brookyn's Don Diva, due Nov. 20 from KOCH Records/Black Hand Entertainment. Visitors are immediately welcomed with the track We Don't Surrender, featuring Grafh. The site also features news and press sections and an area for ringtone downloads.

Brown was sentenced to one year in jail on September 7th for violating her probation that stemmed from a fight with two manicurists in a New York City nail salon back in August 2004.

Brown first made a name for herself after winning a talent contest in her hometown of Brooklyn and was soon featured on tracks by LL Cool J, Nas, Case, Toni Braxton and more. She later joined the hip-hop supergroup The Firm in the late '90s with Nas, AZ and Nature. The group released an album in 1997 titled The Firm: The Album, which sold over 900,000 units. Brown released three solo albums: Ill Na Na (1996), Chyna Doll (1999), and Broken Silence (2001) which sold a total of 3 million records and propelled her to stardom. Foxy was the first female rapper to release an album that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with Chyna Doll.
