Yes, she's in jail, but no, Foxy Brown is not done acting up. The fiesty rapper was sentenced to seventy-six days of solitary confinement at Rikers Island last week after committing three in-prison violations. The first was a physical altercation with another inmate that went down on the way to the dining hall (it was severe enough to require the interference of correctional officers), then the next day Brown refused to submit to a random drug test. The third violation -- and the one which may bring Foxy even further disciplinary action -- was the hip-hop queen's repeated refusal to board a bus to her arraignment in Brooklyn court. Under the rules of her new mandated alone time, she will spend twenty-three hours a day in her cell with one hour allotted as personal time during which she can see visitors or her lawyer, or exercise in a separate recreation area.
Brown is serving her year-long prison sentence for violating probation after several arrests, including one for allegedly striking her Brooklyn neighbor with her BlackBerry and another for allegedly throwing hair-extension glue at a beauty-shop owner in Florida when he told her the shop was closing. Based on anecdotal evidence of its theraputic powers, we suggest she try teaching the other inmates the "Thriller" dance once she's sprung from solitary.
