Muze PNote A little more than two years after she released her sophomore album, Foxy Brown returns with a world of experiences to talk about on BROKEN SILENCE. This album is a testament to the life the hip-hop femme fatale has lived, and it's her most truthful work to date. From the vagaries of love to life's struggles to the business of music, Brown completely opens up, detailing every last secret that has haunted her career.
Muze PNote On "A Letter," she dedicates a verse to her mother and each of her brothers, apologizing for her mistakes. Then on "730," a bouncy track produced by Loafey, Foxy speaks directly to another woman who's trying to rain on her parade. But that doesn't mean that the entire album is about heartache, as reggae-influenced songs like "Tables Will Turn," featuring Baby Cham, and "Oh Yeah," featuring Spragga Benz, introduce a new wrinkle to Brown's rapping style. She also honors her roots by paying homage to her hometown Brooklyn on "BK Anthem."

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (8/2/01, p.64)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Over some bodacious tracks, she employs Jamaican patois, slips oral sex past the censors and is strong enough to be vulnerable....'Pac would be proud."

Spin (9/01, p.159)
- 7 out of 10 - "...SILENCE has the stark and brooding air of urban realism Before Jigga. A classic out of time, kinda like Foxy..."

Entertainment Weekly (7/20/01, p.68)
- "...Hip-hop with a decidedly dancehall feel..." - Rating: B-

Vibe (6/01, pp.129-30)
- 3.5 discs out of 5 - "...Succeeds largely because it gives her the opportunity to employ her swift, bottom-heavy voice...over the best backing tracks that DefJam money can buy..."

The Source (7/01, pp.179-82)
- 4 mics out of 5 - "...Contains her most introspective work to date...FB's authentic reggae twang could...give KRS the Blastmaster a run for his 'bloodclot' money....she proves she can be a credible master of ceremonies on her own."
