Biography

Foxxx released his first LP, Freddie Foxxx Is Here in (1989) through MCA Records. He soon parted ways with the label and became a member of Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit establishment.[1] In 1993, only promo copies of his second album, Crazy Like A Foxxx, were circulated when Epic Records decided to shelve it.[1]

Foxxx then began to be known more for his cameos on songs by Boogie Down Productions, Naughty By Nature, M.O.P., Missin Linx OC and, most notably, his appearance on Gang Starr's The Militia from their Moment of Truth album (1998). The song was issued as a single, building a buzz for Foxxx and helping him to prep for his next full-length release. [1]

This time around he applied the lessons he'd learned from previous experiences with major record labels, and went the independent route. The LP featured production from hip hop heavyweights DJ Premier, Pete Rock and The Alchemist. The members of M.O.P. provided the album's only cameo.

After the success of Industry Shakedown, Foxxx released his third official album, Konexion (2003) via Barely Breaking Even. A less commercially successful affair, the album was nevertheless faithful to its predecessor in terms of style and content and featured contributions from frequent collaborator DJ Premier and DJ Clark Kent.


Foxxx made significant contributions to the WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2006 soundtrack. He contributed two songs, and made a guest appearance on another song. He also produced all of the hip hop songs.He also appeared on WWE John Cena's album You Can't See Me.[1]

In 2006, he released a mixtape called Street Triumph, in anticipation of his fifth album, Amerikkan Black Man. He has also confirmed a joint project with producer, Kev Brown, although it hasn't been announced when this album will be released.

Recently, his previously unreleased album Crazy Like a Foxxx will be officially released in July 29, 2008 on Fat Beats Records.[1]
