Da Brat Writing Book, Working On Reality Show

Da Brat, who was released from prison in March after serving two and a half years for assaulting an Atlanta Falcons cheerleader with a bottle, is looking to take her second chance and begin new ventures outside of music.

In an interview with CNN, Brat talked about her future business moves saying, “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.”

“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.”

Da Brat revealed that she’s in the midst of shopping a reality TV show.

“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,” she said.

“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.”

Brat wasn’t completely turned away from music. She released released a new mixtape, Life After Death, which can be found here.

Lets hope through ventures workout for the B-R-A-T.

It’s hard out here for these old school rappers. Word to Foxy Brown. Lil Kim too.
