DA BRAT: Not to take anything for granted, because it's the little things that mean the most. The letters, the food — I had no idea I wouldn't see a shrimp for three years. DA BRAT: Music, reality show, a book, working with my own artists. You don't look at those little things you take for granted so easy, until you get sat down, get locked up, or get into a position were you see other people who are less fortunate than you — that don't have anybody. COM: As a female rapper what are your thoughts on Nicki Minaj? She's doing her thing, I don't know much about her but I'm sure she probably been trying get to where she is for a while — so let her get it.
In fact, we have little to say on the subject of Mariah Carey at all, other than we were recently shocked to learn that the title of her upcoming album has nothing to do with butterflies or rainbows. Reporteth one of their spies: I just wanted to tell you guys that Mariah Carey and Da Brat are definitely dating [each other]. No Homo."That said, our interest was piqued by the photograph of Mariah and Da Brat that accompanies this post. Not only is Mariah covering her chestal region with a rainbow-colored piece of fabric that was once, in another lifetime, before it was shrunk like those kids in that Rick Moranis movie, an actual article of clothing, it kind of looks like she's about to direct Da Brat's face right to her crotch.
We weren't even going to take time out of our incredibly busy (if by busy you mean we've been listening to the first volume of and playing computer solitaire all day) schedule to mention that the notoriously inaccurate and more-than-occasionally homophobic-sounding gossip site Media Take Out is reporting that Mariah Carey and Da Brat were spotted canoodling in L. They were at [Villa] last night and for almost the whole night Mariah was sitting on Da Brat's lap. We know that female sexuality is complex, like a Beach Boys vocal arrangement or doing your taxes with nothing more than a pencil and a calculator, and there are only a handful of women on the face of the earth we simply wouldn't believe lesbian rumors about.
And they were both sharing the same drink - FROM THE SAME GLASS!!!
The way those two were carrying on, I thought they would start kissing right there in front of everyone.
In 2008, rapper Shawntae "Da Brat" Harris was sentenced to three years behind bars, seven years of probation and 200 hours of community service for striking a woman in the face with a bottle.
The incident occurred at an Atlanta-area nightclub and left the victim's face permanently scarred.Harris served her time, and earlier this week was released on house arrest.The very elated rapper chatted with about what she learned, her reality show, and Nicki Minaj. COM: What's the first thing you did when you got out? There was a young Black officer that I heard rumors that he had said stuff like, 'Oh I'll lock her down, I don't give a damn who she is." I was so mad when he finally locked me down because it was for no reason.DA BRAT: I went to the Huddle House, and ate me a steak, scrambled eggs with fresh vegetables and some fried shrimp. When he told me to, 'Turn around and cuff up,' to walk me to lockdown, I really had to pray, because one side of me was like 'If you really going to lockdown then you need to make it happen and have something to go to lockdown for.' The other side of me said, 'Hold your peace, this is what got you here, keep walking and don't say nothing.' Some officers do so much to try and get at you.I didn't have any shrimp the whole time I was in prison. Not all the officers were like that, most were nice and respectful.Had I showed my ass, I would probably been in lockdown longer than I was. COM When you reflect on your time in jail, what kind of impact does it have on your life?
