When she was just 17 years old, Brooklyn-born Inga Marchand was featured on Jay-Z’s hit single “Ain’t No Nigga” and soon signed to Def Jam Records, determined to carve out a place for herself within the male-dominated hip-hop industry. Her deep voice and gritty flow won her instant acclaim and comparisons to the ’70s action hero who inspired her name. Repeated run-ins with the law and a bout of hearing loss have slowed Foxy’s output in recent years, but she’ll always be the Ill Na Na.
