Rapper Da Brat is trying to get her life back on track since being released from prison in March.
Brat was serving time for attacking an Atlanta Falcons cheerleader at a nightclub with a bottle, but she is plotting more positive endeavors.
Despite not writing any music during her two-and-a-half-years behind bars, she did take time to write a book that talks about her rough childhood.
“The book is pretty much about myself as a child, growing up in church and the different things I encountered like being in a gang and trying to sell drugs,” she says.
She’s also shopping a reality television show that would give fans a peek into her life without all the drama.
“The sad thing about it is most of these networks want the fighting, they want the drunkenness, they want the confrontational and that’s not me anymore,” she says. “I’ve outgrown that and I don’t want that to be the main focus. Been there, done that and been through hell because of that. I want to show people who I am, introduce them to my family, where I’ve come from, how I’m helping people with my charity work. I know it sounds boring, but with that comes with a lot and a lot of bumps in the road.”
