The city of St. Louis is known for churning out successful recording artists in the music business. Popular names such as Nelly, J-Kwon, Chingy and other Top 40s artists have all emerged from the Midwestern city. Another name to soon be recognized amongst the phenomenal musical talents representing St. Louis is female rapper, Tiffany Foxx.
Tiffany Foxx discovered her love for music at a young age. In her youth, her artistic talents were cultivated by playing both piano and the clarinet; while her creative talents were unleashed through her love for writing poetry. As she became exposed to one particular popular artist from her hometown (Nelly), Tiffany Foxx began to fuse her artistic and creative gifts. As she started to put her poetry to music, she unlocked ability in herself that she never knew she had – songwriting. This ability quickly transcended that of the simple hobby of a young girl. As she rigorously practiced and cultivated her skills, Tiffany Foxx developed into the immensely talented emcee she is today.
In 2007, Tiffany Foxx joined forces with two female rappers, also from St. Louis. Together they formed the rap trio, June 5th. As a female rap group, Tiffany Foxx, Scar La Don and Brooke Holladay coined the term “street couture” to describe their signature sound, which reflects influences from musical legends of the Rhythm and Blues and Hip Hop musical genres. In 2009, their breakthrough efforts earned June 5th a career spotlight in one of Hip Hop’s most reputable magazines, The Source. About five years later, after encountering their share of deception and disappointment at the hands of people in the music business who were trusted to guide their career, the group would make a difficult, but unanimous, decision to forever remain loyal to their June 5th union, but to dissolve the musical entity and support the solo career of Tiffany Foxx. With the continuous and relentless moral and professional support from her sisters in music, Tiffany Foxx is making great strides in her solo efforts.
Throughout her musical career with June 5th, Tiffany Foxx worked with Hip Hop heavyweights Eric Sermon, Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Jim Jones, Akon and more. Since embarking on her solo music career, Tiffany Foxx is currently working with reputable hit maker, Bangladesh. With Bangladesh taking her under his wing, her project has gained much momentum. Her debut solo mixtape is entitled Yellow Tape, and is slated to be released summer 2012. Tiffany Foxx attributes Lauren Hill, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Eminem and Adele as being her irreplaceable musical influences. A reflection of her personal style, Tiffany Foxx’s music maintains the description of “street couture.” In her music, you can hear her love for fashion and style and her story of struggle and sacrifice. Having claimed personal triumph over tragic events in her past such as sexual assault and other personal struggles, Tiffany Foxx refuses to allow any worldly force to keep her from realizing and living her dreams. Regardless of disappointing deals with past managers and shady industry characters, she remains focused. Having overcome both professional and personal obstacles over the years, the dominating theme for Tiffany Foxx in life and music is that of pride, independence, perseverance and humility.
