Ever since her 2011 release from prison, Da Brat has been on the grind and just landed her a new gig.
The Chicago born emcee will be joining the Dish Nation television show. “We are very excited to have Da Brat officially join the Dish Nation team. Having been a celebrated rap artist for over two decades, Da Brat brings an authentic voice to the world of entertainment news. Once she began guest hosting, we knew right away we had to make her a permanent member of the Dish family,” stated Stephen Brown, EVP of Programming and Development, FOX Television Stations.
“Since the first day I filled in on Dish Nation, it felt comfortable and there was a natural chemistry. The amazingly talented personalities that I’m surrounded by every day make me thrive to be better. I am so grateful that Rickey Smiley gave me the opportunity to do his morning show and ecstatic to be a part of the Dish Nation family. I’ve had an incredible career since 1994 and I feel like it’s just the beginning all over again. Thank you Dish Nation family!,” Da Brat exclaimed in the statement.
Da Brat released her last studio solo back in 2003 but her name and contributions to the culture are solidified in granite. In 1994 she released her debut album “Funkdafied” and became the first female solo rap act to go platinum.
