HOT 97’s K Foxx talks VH1’s ‘The Gossip Game,’ Summer Jam & drops serious B.I.G. freestyle

NEW YORK (TRP) — New York radio personality K Foxx is known for holding it down for the ladies as the lone female voice in the mornings on HOT 97’s “Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg show.”

And when she’s not on the NYC airwaves, you can catch the foxy radio star dishing it out on VH1’s “The Gossip Game,” the show that follows 7 female media personalities covering the world of hip hop where drama is surely not lacking.

“Do I have drama?” K Foxx quipped when asked about the over-the-top scenes that have become commonplace on the reality show.

“With me I really try to steer clear from that,” she explained. “But if someone gets at me, I will check them. There’s a difference”

K Foxx does a fair share of checking when she’s on the HOT 97 mic, sounding off – and at times – clashing with co-hosts Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg.

Radio personality turned reality star K. Foxx talks about her career and new VH1 show in a candid sit-down with Andrew Ramos where she even drops some Biggie freestyle.

“[Being the only girl] is a lot of pressure but I grew up with 3 older brothers so [I] can be one of the guys, but sometimes you have your feminine days and you’re kind of like ‘today is not the day,’” she explained. “You kind of have to draw the line in the sand and say ‘you know guys I don’t’ feel like joking around today.’”

While hip hop appears to be a predominately male-dominated game, Foxx offered some insight as to why it really isn’t.

“Us females let you guys believe it is a man’s game but we really run it,” she said. “Because if you listen to all the music out there, it’s about us. It’s about women.”

Between Kendrick Lamar rapping about “Poetic Justice” to A$AP Rocky proclaiming that he loves “bad bitches,” anyone who takes a look at the top hip hop songs on the Billboard Hot 100 would probably come down with the same conclusion.

And it just so happens, Kendrick and A$AP will both be hitting the stage at this year’s Summer Jam, as HOT 97 celebrates its 20th year of putting on the legendary show billed as the biggest hip hop concert on the planet. With a lineup that includes Chris Brown, 2 Chainz and a reunion by Shaolin’s -own Wu Tang Clan, rookies need not apply.

“Touching that Summer Jam stage is legendary. We hand pick our artists,” Foxx said. “You have to be the best of the best.”
