“I can confirm that Da Brat has been released and is home in Atlanta,” said the MC’s publicist, Saptosa Foster.
The jail time stemmed from a 2007 occurrence at an Atlanta club where the 36-year-old rapper was arrested after striking a woman over the head with a bottle. A work-release program allowed Da Brat to have some freedom over the last year.
Jermaine Dupri took to twitter yesterday (February 28) to announce his excitement. “Happy day for me and all SO SO DEF fans, Da BRAT is finally home,” tweeted JD who has worked with the Chicago native since her platinum selling album, Funkdafied. JD is expected to give a statement soon. Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as more details emerge. —Nicole LoPresti
