Da Brat Replaces Claudia Jordan On 'The Rickey Smiley Morning Show'

The 'Funkdafied' rapper made her debut Monday morning on the nationally syndicated radio show

Rapper Da Brat will once again be blasting through our radio speakers, but this time around she's lending her voice to "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show."

The entertainer made her debut Monday on the nationally syndicated radio show following the departure of Claudia Jordan. She becomes the third female co-host to join the show in just over a year (after Jordan and Ebony Steele)

Da Brat spent the morning reading the news, which included South Carolina's decision to remove the Confederate flag and the birth of Bobby Brown's new daughter. The crew also took time to speak with Tyrese Gibson about his latest album Black Rose.

Da Brat solidified her place in hip-hop history when she became the first female solo rap act to have a platinum-selling album with her debut project Funkdafied in 1994.  She went on to release three more albums before her career came to a screeching halt when she was sentenced to three years in prison for an assault stemming from a 2007 incident.

Since her release, Da Brat has been a regular visitor on "The Rickey Smiley Morning Show," participating in rap battles with personalities Headkrack and Gary With Da Tea.
