Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- Foxy Brown leaves Def Jam to start an independent label which will be distributed through Koch Records. Last Wednesday night, August 8, Foxy Brown closed a deal with Koch Records which makes her the first female star MC to have an independent label at Koch. Although the exact terms of the deal were not disclosed, label sources revealed it was a multi-million dollar negotiation that signed after office hours. The first artist to be released under Black Rose Entertainment will be Foxy Brown.

Ms. Brown will release her highly anticipated street album titled' Brooklyn's Don Diva ' later this year, which will be her first release since regaining her hearing. Foxy stated "I have always been a symbol of independence as a female in music. My brand is already established, millions of my records have already been sold, and I have a fan base already loyal, after 13 years at Def Jam, I felt it was time as a matured business women to move on and continue my brand under the roof of something I own".

Foxy also hinted she will be looking to sign artists who have worldwide appeal because of her strong ties in the Caribbean music genre. Chaz Williams, of Black Hand Management, stated, "Foxy is not only an incredible talent but an entrepreneur with a vision. She decided to move on to literally greener pastures, like money green. We are faced with a climate in music and new media where the independent is far more profitable. Ownership and partnerships are the new millennium record deals."

The first single from Brooklyn's Don Diva will hit radio within the next few weeks, and the album is scheduled for a December release. Foxy went on to say, "I have two albums of music recorded, and my fans have waited long enough, I'm back b%ches!!!"
