Rapper Foxy Brown, charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from an August 2004 argument with two nail salon workers, will face trial on July 17.

Prosecutors allege that Brown, during a skirmish over payment for a manicure, kicked one salon employee and hit the other in the face.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Gerald Harris also extended orders of protection for the nail salon workers, the Associated Press reports.

Brown (real name: Inga Marchand), 26, appeared in court Friday sporting pigtails, brown shorts, stilettos and a tight T-shirt with a picture of a tiger.

At her last court appearance in December, when she was due to enter a guilty plea, Judge Melissa Jackson ended up accusing the rapper of showing disrespect and making faces at her.

Jackson said Brown could either apologize or serve up to 30 days in jail. Brown apologized, but did not enter a plea.

In September, another female rapper, Lil' Kim, began a 366-day sentence in a Philadelphia prison for perjury. She was convicted of lying to a grand jury investigating a 2001 shootout involving members of her entourage and a clique loyal to Brown, her archenemy, the AP says.
