The sophomore album from hip-hop diva Foxy Brown comes almost two years after she took rap music by storm. Her hardcore rhyme flow and fashionable lyrical content are still present, but where Foxy went the commercial route with her debut, she returns to the streets on CHYNA DOLL. Constantly a target for the media, Foxy explains the hardships that go along with that circumstance on "My Life." She flips the coin, though, on "B.W.A.," collaborating with Gangsta Boo and Mia X for a women's-power anthem. Street-inspired songs abound on CHYNA DOLL, and Brown is visited by her partner-in-rhyme, Jay-Z, as well as other notable hardcore MCs such as DMX.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (3/4/99, pp.84-95) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) - "...CHYNA DOLL is nothing if not diverse....thanks to a strong cast of featured guests and an impeccable collection of begging-for-airplay beats, she never spreads herself too thin..."
Entertainment Weekly (2/5/99, p.69) - "...Like Puff Daddy, Foxy Brown at her most shallow creates a beguiling fantasy life of limos and champagne; her persona and songs are glamorous and exciting in the way a pop star's should be. What's surprising is that the record hints at how painful maintaining the fantasy can be..." - Rating: B
Q (3/99, p.93) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...CHYNA DOLL deals in rap's usual boasting, liberally sprinkled with lashings of typically industrial language, but there's more to her than simply showing off and swearing..."
The Source (4/99, p.196) - 3.5 Mics (out of 5) - "...CHYNA DOLL is important because it provides a roadmap through the mind of a Black girl....CHYNA DOLL certainly rocks the body..."
