Vixen Chat: Tiffany Foxx Talks Working With Lil’ Kim and Femcee Unity
VIBE Vixen: Tell our readers a little bit about yourself.
Tiffany Foxx: My name is Tiffany Foxx, 2 x’s. I’ve been doing music all my life; whether it’s been playing the clarinet, piano or doing poetry. For the past seven years I’ve really been pursuing my rap career. I’m from St. Louis, so I’ve seen how Nelly was able to put poetry with harmony.
You’re planning on putting St. Louis back on the map?
Of course definitely, Nelly opened the door and I’m going to make sure I carry that torch.
How would you describe your sound?
The name of my sound is street couture. I can talk about anything; heartbreak, politics, having fun at the club, and I’m always going to incorporate fashion. But I’m really raw, you really don’t know what’s going to come out my mouth. I might say things I’m really not supposed to say and do things I’m really not supposed to do but I think that’s what makes a lot girls really connect to me, but it’s life.
Who are a few of your favorite designers?
Yves Saint Laurent, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Versace. My favorite jeans right now are Rag and Bone.
How did your collaboration with Miley Cyrus come about?
I did a video called “Jellybean” and I guess she saw it when it came out. Kim retweeted it and she’s in love with Kim so she was on twitter like “Kim I love your artist Tiffany Foxx” with all these little hearts and “I love Jelly bean.” I was recording with Nelly at the time and my manager knocked on the booth like come look at this twitter. From that point on we started tweeting back and forth and then we dm’d each other our information and we just started kicking it via telephone for a second. I asked her if she would be able to come to the video shoot. She said, “No I’m not going to be in town, but it would be cool if you could put my name in it.” Then on the set they were like come upstairs and Miley was there. I was like “Oh my god Hannah Montana is right here.” We’ve been cool ever since.
Are you releasing any more mixtapes or albums soon?
Yes I’m releasing “Goal Diggers” in late spring. It’s almost done and I could have [released it already] but I’m trying to really squeeze everything I can out of Yellow Tape because my fans have been asking for different singles.
Why did you choose the name ‘Goal Diggers’?
I have been making “Goal Diggers” very popular because I call my fan base that. It’s for anyone who dares to be different, pushes the envelope, takes risks, is used to rejection, but is still motivated. That’s pretty much been my story. I’ve just been going ham and my fans have been going ham about it too.
