Rapper’s Cayman departure planned, says publicist

| 30/03/2011

(CNS): International media reports that rapper Foxy Brown was kicked off a Royal Caribbean cruise ship in the Cayman Islands last week are untrue. Black Star Communications said that Brown was always scheduled to leave the ship and fly back to the States once it arrived in Grand Cayman. Reports that the rap star was thrown off the cruise stemmed from comments made by radio host Tom Joyner, who was hosting the  Fantastic Voyage Cruise, a specialist annual trip for listeners to his show. Joyner said Brown, who was one of the celebrity performers, was booted off  because of an altercation aboard ship with a nail salon attendant. However, the radio personality admitted yesterday that Brown was not put off the ship.

The Cayman Islands Immigration Department confirmed that rap star Foxy Brown left from Owen Roberts Airport last week after arriving in George Town on the cruise ship Voyager of the Seas.

"We reported that Foxy got put off – she did not get put off – she did not get put off. That was incorrect," Joyner said on his show yesterday. "She was scheduled to get off when she got off." Joyner’s co-host Sybil Wilkes went on to say that stories of a nail salon altercation with Foxy and staff also were untrue. "A lot of was reported was blown out of proportion," Wilkes said.

Brown had responded to Joyner via Twitter previously tweeting, "I tore the stage down! That’s the thanks I get?? U wait til’ I leave the ship and then 2 days later your on the air …”

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, has been in trouble before, however, over a manicure. In 2008 she was charged with misdemeanour assault for allegedly attacking workers in a New York nail salon after arguing with them over the bill.

    Sybil DID NOT say that the story of her altercation in the nail salon were untrue. Tom said that they WERE TRUE. He received the wrong information that was blown out of proportion, BUT SHE DID get into an altercation with the ships staff.

     Controversy has always surrounded Foxy Brown.

    It is quite unfortunate because the woman is one of the best female rappers to ever pick up the microphone. (For those that don’t agree I point you in the direction of the "I Shot Ya Remix" – LLCool J and others.)

    What impresses the most is how young she was (16-17 years at this particular point) when she was on top of her game.

    Nonetheless, she appears to have a horrible attitude and for that there is no justification in this short life.


    * Pay close attention to Prodigy’s verse beginning at the 1:00 min mark. Therein lies knowledge for every reader today – although I am quite certain that many folks on here will dismiss the entire track as immature urban ramblings. 

    Nevertheless, I know the few brave and openminded amongst us will appreciate.

        Ummm … no.

        ‘Best rapper’ is like ‘best rocker’ or ‘best singer’.

        In what world do you live that musician and politicians carry out the same functions?

    Has anyone actually everheard of her?

    Sounds like a drama queen who thinks she’s better than everyone else.

    If she threw a tantrum on my ship I’d chuck her overboard.

      And why would you say that – do you know her. Obviously your comments were made before the untrue statement was retracted. Just shows people just cant keep their mouths shut and are always getting into business that does not concern them. For the record the story was not true for those that are missing it. She was scheduled to leave tha ship in tha Cayman Islands and she was not put off tha ship

      wouldn’t have hurt to do a lil research before you commented! She might not be a Whitney Houston chart topper but she was relevant in her time & has a loyal following to this day.
