While other rappers claim to party like rock stars, Brooklyn's Foxy Brown behaves like one. In 2007, she was found guilty of beating her neighbor with a BlackBerry device and was accused of throwing hair glue at a beauty store employee in Florida. Back in 2004, she was accused of assaulting two manicurists over a $20 bill. Like any seasoned rocker, Brown is reportedly suffering from hearing loss and recently completed a stint at Riker's Island. Also on her rap sheet: the radio favorites "Hot Spot" and "Big Bad Mama," three solo albums and membership in the short-lived rap supergroup The Firm. The Ill Na Na comes to Toad's Place July 26 at 9 p.m. $25. 648-TOAD.
