Foxy Brown: "I Just Knew God Had Got Me..."

The female MC speaks about how she went deaf before regaining her hearing

New York rapper Foxy Brown recently opened up about her deafness with talk show host and comedian, Mo’Nique. The female MC spoke about how she went deaf a few years ago and how she has now managed to regain her hearing.

Foxy Brown said: "It was 100 percent gone, overnight. They don't even know why. I have the best surgeon in the world who specializes in ear problems and the operations and surgeries and Wednesday night [in 2005], I was out shooting the cover of XXL with Jay-Z, Kanye West and LeBron, and Thursday morning I woke up and couldn't hear anything. I was completely deaf. 100 percent.

"I just knew that God had got me then. Because I kept running and dodging him and he kept giving me signs and little warnings, and they say God will get you first in private and if he don't get you then, then he'll get you in public."
