AceShowbiz - Kandi Burruss' decision to bring Foxy Brown to her "Welcome to the Dungeon Tour" show in New York City on Saturday night, May 18 did not go as smooth as expected. Rather than go out in a blaze of glory, the veteran rapper was booed by the crowd and forced off stage following what the crowd might consider as less-than-stellar performance.
Footage from the show featured Foxy hitting the stage in thigh-high boots, a long coat and a mask that covered her face. She tried to perform her 1996 song "I'll Be" featuring Jay-Z, but she was noticeably struggling with the words. Watching her performance, the crowd went angry and proceeded to boo her off. She was quickly whisked backstage, looking confused when she was escorted off the stage.
Kandi then took the stage to do a little damage control, telling the crowd, "Y'all gotta respect my girl. Let her take the mask off." Adding insult to the injury, the DJ decided to switch the sour mood by playing tracks from Foxy's longtime rival Lil' Kim.
Besides the Xscape singer, fans of Foxy have also come to her defense following the incident, with many reminding others that the female emcee is partially deaf. "Poor foxy. Someone please get her a hearing aid, or surgery she can hear this is so sad. She needs help," one said as one other sarcastically asked, "Did they forget she is partially deaf now?" Another similarly wrote, "People keep forgetting she is deaf. I actually feel bad for foxy."
Foxy revealed in December 2005 that she experienced and sudden sensorineural hearing loss in both ears and she had not heard another person's voice in six months. This prompted the Bronx rapper to go on a hiatus before announcing in the following year that her hearing had been restored through surgery.
