Artist: Foxy Brown —
Brooklyn's own Foxy Brown decided to change her image to reflect the Kings County neighborhood she's from. In 2001, she released her third album, Broken Silence showcasing a more "street" image, and gave tribute to hometown heroes such as The Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z.
The first single, "Oh Yeah," featured her then-boyfriend, Jamaican dancehall king Spragga Benz. Sampling the Jamaican reggae and ska band Toots & The Maytals' "54-46 That's My Number," the Ill Na Na flowed like water on the track. In the end, her song is widely credited as the first song to kick off the Hip-Hop/Dancehall movement in the early 2000's.
