Foxy Brown Joins Nicki Minaj On Stage

Foxy Brown Joins Nicki Minaj On Stage
New York -- Nicki Minaj's New York City concert featured usual suspects like her mentor Lil Wayne and label mate Drake, but it was another guest appearance that was really striking: rapper Foxy Brown.

Brown joined Minaj onstage Tuesday night at the Roseland Ballroom. Before she took the stage, Minaj said she wanted to introduce "the female rapper who influenced me the most."

As Brown entered, the crowd of nearly 3,000 roared. She performed three songs from her last album, 2001's "Broken Silence."

"'Broken Silence' changed my life," Minaj said. "I always loved Foxy. When she put out `Broken Silence,' I knew she was an innovator."

The Queens-based Minaj added that although Brown is "crazy sometimes," she's also ahead of her time.

"There aren't any other female rappers who have opened doors for me than you," Minaj said, looking to Brown and quickly adding: "You and Lauryn (Hill)."

As long as he keeps himself clean, he'll be in excellent shape.

Even if he stumbles a bit on his return to the real world, Weezy is on the way to having the most successful post-incarceration career of any recent rap star. Take a look at his peers for proof.
