Atlanta bound, female emcee Da Brat is the new co-host of “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.” She will be replacing Claudia Jordan of the “Real Housewives Of Atlanta.” Da Brat is known for being very opinionated, and quick witted. Add that, and her background within the music industry, becoming a co-host for a top nationally syndicated radio and television show… could be a good look for her, and her career. She was first discovered as a young artist by Hip Hop producer Jermaine Dupri, in her hometown Chicago. Da Brat greatest career accolade is being the first female solo Hip Hop artist to go Platinum with her album “Funkdafied”, released in 1994. July 13th was her first official appearance on the show. RSMS has been going strong for over five years.
