Biography

Early career, "Ill Na Na", The Firm

While still a teenager, Brown won a talent contest in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. At the time, production team Trackmasters were working on LL Cool J's "Mr. Smith" album, the pair were in attendance that night and being impressed, they decided to let her rap over "I Shot Ya." She followed her debut with appearances on several RIAA platinum and gold singles from other artists, including remixes of songs "You're Makin' Me High" by Toni Braxton. Brown was also featured on the soundtrack to the 1996 film "The Nutty Professor", on the songs "Touch Me Tease Me" by Case and "Ain't No Nigga" by Jay-Z. [Erlewine, Stephen Thomas. [http://wc05.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:0zfexqthldje "The Nutty Professor" - overview] .

Jamaican airport incident

Threat of arrest faced her following an altercation at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, Jamaica from July 26, 2002; she would be arrested if she ever would return to the country. Nicola White, clerk of the Kingston Criminal Court, told the "New York Post" that Brown illegally evaded a body search at the airport and punched a policewoman in the stomach. Brown's publicist, Marvette Britto, argued that Brown felt that she was being "detained" at the airport. Originally, a hearing for Brown was scheduled for July 28, 2002, but Brown failed to show up. Thus, on late December 2002, an arrest warrant was set up for Brown skipping the hearing.
