Brooklyn's Don Diva is the debut mixtape by American hip-hop artist Foxy Brown. Released on May 13, 2008, it was intended to be the follow-up to 2001's Broken Silence. According to Rolling Stone magazine, the album would be released prior to Black Roses, the album that she has been working on since 2004 and was recorded in Chung King Studios in New York City. Several tracks ("When the Lights Go Out", "We Don't Surrender", "Star Cry") have been released to iTunes, as intended singles to promote the street album. A couple of beats were produced by Polish beatmaker Matheo.
The album's release had been delayed multiple times, primarily due to Foxy Brown's jail sentence.
The album peaked at #83 on the Billboard 200 chart, #8 on the Independent Albums chart, and #5 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
