Quite a few factors kept Da Brat from coming out, but the “Funkdafied” rapper — born Shawntae Harris — says that the decision to keep her sexuality under wraps was ultimately her call and not the result of pressure from her label.
And while Brat’s mother is not necessarily happy with her decision to come out, she was clear that her mom loves and supports her regardless.
