Inga DeCarlo Fung Marchand (born 6 September 1978), better known by her stage name Foxy Brown, is an American rapper, model, and actress. She is best known for her solo work, in addition to her numerous collaborations with other artists and her brief stint as a member of The Firm. Her debut album was Ill Na Na in 1996, followed by Chyna Doll in 1999 and Broken Silence in 2001. She performed on the 1997 self-titled album by The Firm, the only album to be released by the group. Throughout her career, Brown has held an extensive arrest record and has served some time in jail. Brown has also had a number of feuds with numerous hip hop artists.

After 2001, she continued recording verses for herself and other artists but did not release any albums; she left the Def Jam label in 2003, thus cancelling the release of her Ill Na Na 2 album. However, she returned to the label in 2005 after then-Def Jam president and CEO Jay-Z signed her back to begin work on her album Black Roses. In December 2005, she began suffering from hearing loss, and put her career in hiatus for a year until she had surgey. Her fourth studio album, announced to be titled Bandz Up, is currently in production.
