Have you gotten any advice from your peers?
I have a lot of great friends and a lot of smart people so I’ve gotten a lot of advice from good influential people who I definitely take the advice from. I don’t want to share no names. I don’t want to bring nobody in it because you would be surprised who is trying to get brought in it that didn’t have anything to do with it at all.
What was the first thing you did when you were released?
Went to get a steak and eat. Got scooped up in the limo and hung out with my partners, we just kicked it and talked about future plans. Everybody was trying to come get me but I just let my crew come get me, my boys… They been down with me the whole time, coming to see me every weekend even when I didn’t feel like it. Jamel, Mister and Ralph, that’s my squad, they more like my brothers. I told my sister and all them to just chill. They can come see me when I’m home cuz I’m in Atlanta on house arrest right now. They can come see me whenever they want to.
What do you plan to do while you’re on house arrest?
I have this nice beautiful leg monitor, ankle bracelet and I can’t really go nowhere. I can go back and forth to work — I’m gonna keep my job at the little window spot where I was working at. I was doing a work release program at the transitional center and I was able to go out every weekend. I thought when I got out I would be able to move around a little more, but now it’s like I’m confined more. At least at the house I have my computer, JD is about to send over some studio equipment, microphone and all that so I’m about to get on the records and get it crackin’. I can watch satellite tv and do whatever I want to do at the house. Get in the hot tub, grill…
Have you started recording yet?
I haven’t started yet. I’m just letting it get all built up. It’s so built up I’m going to explode when I do start and I’m not gonna stop. I’m ready. I’m hungry, I’m excited.
Who do you want to work with when you start recording again?
Aw man, that is a great question. Of course I want to work with JD cuz that’s my brother. I want to do something with Fantasia, I love Fantasia, she is the sweetest. “Bittersweet” was so hot. That was my favorite song for a minute. I love Kelly Price’s voice. I love the singers. Of course I love Mariah but she’s not really working right now cuz she’s about to drop them twins in April they’re gonna be Aries babies. I really don’t have a wishlist right now, I just want the songs to be hot.
What are you going to do differently now that you’re free?
My life period is going to be ten thousand times better because my temper and my attitude have totally adjusted. I think I needed to sit down for awhile. I think God does everything for a reason and it was meant for me to sit down and regroup and think things over and realize I shouldn’t take anything for granted. i have to be very careful about my actions and what I say to people and how I react. I think I am a better person, a wiser person, a smarter person who is not going to take anything for granted anymore.
Once you’re off house arrest, I know you are going somewhere special — where you going?
I have to get permission to go, but I will probably go to Hawaii or something like that. I just want a beautiful sunset, nice beautiful clear water and I want to see some mountains and some bonfires on the beach.
LOL at the broads in lockup fighting each other to braid Da Brat up!!!!
Who do you want to see Da Brat work with?
