Foxy Brown released early from solitary

Rapper rewarded for good behaviour in prison

Foxy Brown has been released from solitary confinement 36 days before her scheduled release date.

The rapper who is currently incarcerated at Rikers Island prison in New York, served 40 days in ‘punitive segregation’ after a dispute with a fellow inmate and a prison officer.

Her manager Chaz WIlliams then blamed the punishment on a misunderstanding, saying Brown did not hear orders from a prison officer.

Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, is serving her sentence after repeatedly violating her probation stemming from an alleged assault in a Chelsea nail salon.
