NEW YORK — After spending her entire career on Def Jam, rapper Foxy Brown has cut ties with the label and signed with Koch Records. The deal includes the launch of Brown’s own imprint, Black Rose Entertainment.
“She’d been at Def Jam for 13 years,” Brown’s manager Chaz Williams said. “It was time to move on to a situation where she was had more control. She’s an artist that’s already established her brand, sold millions of records and has a loyal fan base. She’s got the fame — now she needs to get the fortune.”
Under the terms of the Koch deal, Black Rose Entertainment will release a minimum of three albums per year, the first of which will be Brown’s “Brooklyn’s Don Diva” on Dec. 4. Another new album, “Black Roses,” will arrive next year. The label will keep a focus on Brown’s dancehall reggae roots, and the rapper plans to sign up-and-coming Caribbean and U.S. artists.
Brown’s last album, “Broken Silence,” was released in 2001.
