Word has it that Da Brat is out of prison on work release. She was sentenced to three years in jail after having a brutal altercation with an aspiring model/Atlanta cheerleader named Shayla Stevens. The female rapper hit Shayla in the face with a bottle of rum, causing lacerations and nerve damage (ouch!).
This took place back in November of 2007 and now she is supposedly out on work release. She was on Jermaine Dupri’s Living the Life blog, saying that she was out on a pass and visiting her lawyer. The work release program she is on involves her making windows daily from 9 to 5.
“I’m out on a little pass,” Brat said before thanking fans for all their support while she was in lock-up. “I got a job. I work 9 [a.m.] to 5 [p.m.] because I’m in the work release program. I make windows, so if you need a window, holler at your girl.”
“I’m doing my thing, when I come out I’ma be making windows, music, movies, TV shows, anything I can get my hands on,” Da Brat said. “It’s too much grass done grew up while I aint do nothing all this time and it got on my nerves. I’m fittin to come out and run..fast.”
Da Brat, born as Shawntae Harris, didn’t release any details about her upcoming music work, but I’m sure we’ll hear something about it soon.
