Free As A Bird Foxy

Foxy Brown is finally free after serving only 8 months (which included 40 days in solitary confinement) of a 1 year jail sentence for assaulting two different people last year (she assaulted a neighbor with a BlackBerry and beat the hell out of a nail technician over a $20 manicure). She was sprung from her NYC jail this afternoon in a teary and emotional media blitz that was sure to be recorded for use in her upcoming reality TV show, which will prolly also chronicle the release of her next album, Brooklyn Don Diva, on May 13. Here are a few pics of the newly freed Foxy:

After eight months in prison – including 40 days in solitary confinement – rapper Foxy Brown was released Friday. Brown, 29, left the Rose M. Singer facility at Rikers Island Correctional facility in New York at 12:05 p.m., and was greeted by a swarm of photographers and fans as she exited a white Rolls Royce Phantom on the Queens side of the Rikers Island bridge. "I feel good," she said to the crowd. "I'm back home." Brown, wearing a brown leather blazer, a gold cross, blue jeans, and a brown Fendi head scarf cried as she hugged friends. She even singled out a couple people, saying, "These are my two number one fans. They are like family." After the teary reunion, Brown's entourage went to LaGuardia Inn so the rapper could talk to the press. "My family never missed a visit in eight months, ever. I cried coming out. I didn't cry coming in. There's a big difference. I believe that God put me there for a reason, Incarceration is serious," she told Access Hollywood. Adding that the first place she wanted to go after her "learning experience" was church. "He got me through," she said. Later Friday Brown was spotted buying a pocketbook and two pairs of shoes at a store called Signature in Harlem near the Apollo Theater, where she was again mobbed by fans and photographers.

Well, I'm glad that God was there in prison with her (tho he must've been otherwise occupied when she assaulted another inmate and was forced to serve in solitary confinement) cuz I really hope she's finally learned her lesson. Am I totally convinced that Foxy's ass beatin' days are over? Not really ... but I do think she'll be on her best behavior for some time. You're free, girl ... stay out of trubs. [Source]
