So So Def rapper Da Brat was sentenced to three years in prison today for a nightclub assault that took place in Atlanta, Georgia.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a Dekalb County judged sentenced the female lyricist for striking a woman with a rum bottle at Studio 72. In addition to prison time, Da Brat was also sentenced to seven years of probation and 200 hours of community service.
“I love y’all,” the rapper, 34, said, as she was removed from the court. Family members present to support her replied back: “We love you too.”
The incident between Da Brat and an unidentified woman took place last October at a Halloween party. The woman was a waitress at Studio 72 and she and Da Brat were involved in an altercation. The end result was the rapper struck the woman in the head, which resulted in her being hospitalized and now she has permanent facial scars.
