Since getting home from serving her 3 year bid, DaBrat (who recently ripped the stage during the Car & Bike show in Atlanta) seems to be getting back in the full swing things.
Brat explains that in her book, she talks about her background and her path towards So So Def history:
The book is pretty much about myself as a child, growing up in church and the different things I encountered like being in a gang and trying to sell drugs.
All the little things that led up to me going to that Kriss Kross concert in 1992, rapping on stage, going to the Oprah Winfrey show, meeting Jermaine Dupri and all of the things that led up to that.
So now that you have been back home for a little bit, are you getting back into the groove of the music industry and did you do any work while you were away?
I actually didn’t do any writing of music while I was locked up. I wrote a book, but I didn’t do any music. But I’m getting back into the swing of things.
I have a mixed tape out called “Life After Death” which you can find on Global14.com and I discuss my prison stint a little bit. A couple of the remixes I did are on there, including a remix of (the Chris Brown song) “Look At Me Now” and I am very happy and excited about it.
It’s loosely based on my life. I’m doing it mostly so I can get a movie deal.
Fans of your sister’s reality show (TV One’s “LisaRaye: The Real McCoy”) saw her interacting with you on while you were locked up. Any plans for your own reality show?
I’m working on getting one now.
The sad thing about it is most of these networks want the fighting, they want the drunkenness, they want the confrontational and that’s not me anymore. I’ve outgrown that and I don’t want that to be the main focus. Been there, done that and been through hell because of that.
I want to show people who I am, introduce them to my family, where I’ve come from, how I’m helping people with my charity work. I know it sounds boring, but with that comes with a lot and a lot of bumps in the road.
So I’m currently shopping for a deal right now.
You have very close family and friends, so who surprised you by coming to visit you in prison?
(Laughing) Mariah. Yeah, Mariah and Nick.
It was a shocker because the whole place was in an uproar. They must have called ahead because all of the officers and the warden knew. The whole compound put on their uniforms and it was a down day when we didn’t have inspection or anything.
They called me and told me I had a visitor and I hadn’t requested a special visitor so I was like “Huh?” Mind you, the person who came to get me was a lieutenant who up until then had been a complete a**hole towards me, but she was being all nice.
They told me to go into the warden’s conference room and when I came around the corner I saw Mariah’s manager. My knees buckled and I almost passed out. I couldn’t believe she had come to see me.
She found a private airport that I didn’t even know existed, flew her G5 in and came to see her BFF. I was really touched by that.
Wooow! Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey went all out to see Da Brat! How sweet was that?
Welp… we all know who Did NOT visit Brat in prison though…
Would you watch a ‘Brat is Back’ reality show?
