Da Brat, a rapper and actress from the United States, is worth $100k per celebritynetworth. Her debut album “Funkdafied,” which she released in 2004, sold over a million copies, making her the first female rapper to have an album go platinum. She was one of the first female MCs in the ’90s hip-hop industry.
Da Brat, then a teenager, was discovered by producer Jermaine Dupri in 1992 after taking first place in a “Hey! MTV Raps” amateur rap competition.
She met Kriss Kross as part of her award, and he instructed her to Dupri, who marked her to his So So Def label. Da Brat’s debut album, “Funkdafied,” produced by Dupri, went platinum and peaked at number two on the R&B charts.
Also, the title track from the album peaked at number one on the rap singles chart and numeral 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Give It 2 You,” the second song, peaked at number 26 on the Hot 100.
Da Brat exercised more creative control over her music and persona for her second album, “Anuthatantrum” (1996), which led to another mainstream triumph with hits like “Sittin’ on Top of the World” and “Ghetto Love,” which included T-Boz from TLC.
She made well-known cameos on songs by Mariah Carey, Missy Elliot, Dru Hill, Lil’ Kim, and other artists during the rest of the 1990s.
Da Brat made her component film debut in 1996’s “Kazaam,” and she also made an appearance in Carey’s “Honey (So So Def mix)” remix.
Later that year, she collaborated with Left Eye from TLC, Angie Martinez, and Missy Elliot to record the widespread remix of “Ladies Night (Not Tonight).”
In 1999, she also appeared on a remix of the song “Jumpin’ Jumpin'” by Destiny’s Child.
Da Brat’s third album, “Unrestricted,” which she released in 2000, became her second R&B chart-topper and her largest album on the pop charts, climbing into the Top Five.
In 2001, she collaborated with Ludacris on a remix of Mariah Carey’s “Loverboy,” at digit 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop bucks diagram. She was a featured artist on a remix of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor.”
She created a big screen in Mariah Carey’s movie “Glitter” in 2002, and in 2003, her fourth album, “Limelite, Love & Niteclubz,” was released. She also appeared in season four of “The Surreal Life” on VH1.
In 2005, Da Brat made a reaction when she and Jermaine Dupri got back together, and she appeared on Dem Franchize Boyz’s remix of “I Think They Want Me,” which peaked at digit one on the Hot R&B graph and number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2006, she performed her rap verses from “Heartbreaker” and “Honey” while on tour with Mariah Carey.
On season five of VH1’s “Celebrity Fit Club,” Da Brat collaborated with Kelly Rowland on the bonus single “Gotsta Go” from her album “Ms. Kelly” in 2007.
With $108,700 in assets and $7,8 million in liabilities, including the $6.4 million judgment owed to her assault victim, Da Brat filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in August 2018.
She owes Sony Music $1.255 million, Ally Bank $12,000, and the IRS and Georgia Department of Revenue a few thousand dollars.
Da Brat owned a $23,000 Jeep Wrangler, a 2014 BMW 328i, and a 1999 Mercedes 238i, each worth $5,000 and $15,000, respectively.
She stated that her monthly income, on average, was $9,300, and her monthly expenses were $10,500. She reported $75,000 in earnings for the year and $92,000 for 2016 as of mid-2018.
But a few months after declaring bankruptcy, the victim of Da Brat’s assault sued to stop the discharge of her debt.
The victim claimed that she had not received any money from the rapper and that the debt had increased to $8 million plus interest.
