NEW YORK (Billboard) - After serving eight months at New York's Rikers Island, rapper Foxy Brown will be released from jail April 18, according to her manager.

"They had her on continuous lockdown just because she is a celebrity. They were trying to break her spirit," Chaz Williams said.

Williams revealed that Brown, born Inga Marchand, is in talks with a couple of television networks for a potential documentary and reality show on her life.

Upon her release, Brown will also prepare for the release of her oft-delayed album, "Brooklyn's Don Diva," now due May 13.

"She's going to get on top of her career again. She's ready to hit the ground running and do anything she needs to do to get her career back on point," Williams said.

Brown was sentenced on September 8 to a year in jail for violating her probation after several arrests, including an altercation with two nail salon employees in August 2004 and assaulting a neighbor with a BlackBerry.
