Da Brat is back with a fresh new mixtape entitled, Life After Death, not only an homage to the late Notorius B.I.G, but also a reflection of her life before and after prison. MrsGrapevine.com had an opportunity to talk with Da Brat one on one. We discussed everything from Da Brat’s return to music, Nicki Minaj, and the lack of women in hip-hop today. We also asked her a few questions submitted by our readers via Facebook, dealing with her sexuality, her “tomboy” style of dressing, and her relationship to Lisa Raye. She also reveals a little something about Mariah Carey and dem babies.
You can download the mixtape, Life After Dark, at GLOBAL 14 (Jermaine Dupri’s Blog-Spot). If you aren’t already, you can also follow Da Brat on twitter @only1rbrat. Check out the transcript of the interview below, I will add the audio soon.
You missed one of the biggest events in US history, what was it like behind bars when you found out Barack Obama won the presidency?
Awww man, we were all in jail crying. The whole thing was in Chicago, I’m from Chicago, I will rep Chicago till I die, so you know I just wanted to be there; just mad because I couldn’t be there. But, it was a beautiful day.
