So So Def rapper Da Brat has confirmed that she has completed her three-year jail sentence related to a 2007 crime but revealed she currently remains under house arrest in Atlanta.
Discussing her new situation, Brat said house arrest could last up to six months.
“It’s been crazy, everybody has been hitting me up,” she said in an interview. “I’m in the ‘A’ doing house arrest. I have this nice leg monitor jewelry. I’ma put some Swarovski Crystals on this…I actually had more freedom in the work release program because I got to go home on pass. In the transition center you work and go back and forth to your job. When you’re on pass you can go home. But I ain’t trippin’. It’s all good. All of this will be over soon.” (XXL Mag)
Finally back to the music, Brat has already started mapping out her rap return with help from producer Jermaine Dupri.
“I’m getting some beats sent to me right now from JD,” Brat added. “I wasn’t really motivated in there to write. I need to be able to hear some fire beats and I need to hear it loud. I got two and a half years of sh*t built up that I need to talk about. I’m ready to get it in. I can’t wait.” (XXL Mag)
Earlier this week, Dupri broke the news of Brat’s return home.
“Happy day for me and all SO SO DEF fans,Da BRAT is finally home,” JD tweeted Monday (February 28).

In late May, Da Brat was freed from behind bars on a work release program.
Female rapper and celeb reality TV star Da Brat, who is nearing the end of a three year prison sentence for smashing a bottle across a woman’s face back in October 2007, has been released from prison on awork release program. The 2007 incident started when Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntae Harris got into an argument with a waitress in an Atlanta-area club owned by record producer mogul Jermaine Dupri. A shouting match between Da Brat and the waitress escalated into shoving and witnesses testified that the rapper then picked up a rum bottle and hit the worker across the face with it, leaving the woman with permanent facial scars.
