She is best known for her solo work, as well as numerous collaborations with other artists and her brief stint as part of hip hop group The Firm.
After suffering from a hearing loss and pushing back release dates for the album, Brown left Def Jam for the second time and launched an independent record label, Black Rose Entertainment, in a distribution deal with Koch Records.
According to Brown, two albums worth of material had been recorded between 20 and she planned to release some of the material onto the street album, Brooklyn's Don Diva.
The album sold over 109,000 copies in the first week, and debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 album charts.
Following the release of Ill Na Na, Brown joined fellow New York-based hip hop artists, Nas, AZ, and Nature to form the supergroup known as The Firm.
The album was released via Aftermath Records and was produced and recorded by the collective team of Dr.
Dre, the Trackmasters, and Steve "Commissioner" Stoute, then of Violator Entertainment.
An early form of The Firm appeared on "Affirmative Action", from Nas' second album, It Was Written.
