Foxy Brown's "Special Treatment" In Jail

Sounds wack, but out of all the many many things wrong with the prison system I'm not sure this should be at the top of the list..

Foxy Brown's "Special Treatment" In Jail

New York City prison officials offered preferential treatment to rapper Foxy Brown while she was incarcerated, Department of Correction sources allege.

The unidentified sources allege the "Chyna Doll" rapper, who was jailed for a 2006 assault on two nail-salon manicurists, received unlimited phone and TV use while incarcerated, the New York Post reported Sunday.

In addition, the rapper received new clothing to replace her dirty apparel and prison officials helped coordinate a magazine interview and photo shoot for Brown, the sources allege.

"It's just out of control," one source said. "There's a total lack of leadership at the top," another source added. Brown, whose real name is Inga Fung Marchand, completed her nine-month prison sentence for her parole violation last April.

The sources told the Post that top prison official Imam Umar Abdul-Jalil was among those allegedly pampering the rapper. Abdul-Jalil is already the subject of a city probe over a lavish bar mitzvah allowed to take place in a New York jail.
