Da Brat Completes Prison Bid

Da Brat is a free woman. The 36-year-old rapper has been released from prison after serving a three-year bid, stemming from an incident where she struck a woman over the head with a rum bottle in an Atlanta club in 2007. Though she got a taste of freedom over the past year while participating in a work-release program, Da Brat has completed her sentence according to her associate Jermaine Dupri.

“Happy day for me and all SO SO DEF fans, Da BRAT is finally home,” tweeted JD, who has worked with the Chi-town rapstress since the release of her debut ‘Funkdafied’ in 1994.

Brat’s sentence stems from an altercation at Studio 72’s Halloween party in 2007, where she got into a verbal argument with the hostess. While the hostess was talking with the manager, Brat crept up behind her and clocked her with the bottle. After pleading guilty to aggravated assault charges, she was sentenced to three years in prison as well as seven years of probation and 200 hours of community service.

Last May, she was released from prison on a temporary basis where she worked a 9-to-5 as a window maker. “If ya’ll need a window, holla at ya girl,” she joked at the time. “I’m doing my thing. When I come back I’m going to be making windows, movies, music, TV shows. Anything I can get my hands on.”
