Da Brat

Despite having not put out a full-length project for over a decade — her last solo release being 2003’s Limelite, Luv & Niteclubz — Chicago lyricist Da Brat made history with her 1994 debut album Funkdafied. The effort, which featured Kris Kross and Jermaine Dupri, among others, sold over a million copies, making her the first female emcee to ever go platinum. This accolade alone earned Da Brat her place in hip-hop’s history book.
