(AllHipHop News) Da Brat has not released a studio album since 2003’s Limelite, Luv & Niteclubz, but the Funkdafied femcee announced she is back in the studio with longtime producing partner Jermaine Dupri.

In the time since Da Brat’s last LP, Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea have emerged as female rap’s highest charting performers. The Chicago native has her own experience with mainstream success (she was the first solo female rap act to have a platinum album), so VladTV asked Brat for her thoughts about the potential longevity of the more recent women to break into rap music.
“I definitely feel like Nicki’s gonna have longevity. I’m not sure about Iggy. Right now she’s dope, but I’m not sure,” said Brat. “I haven’t really heard her ‘spit-spit’, and ‘spit-spitting’ is coming back. Nicki’s spits.”
While Brat is open about her respect for Nicki’s talent, the two ladies did have a misunderstanding back in 2012. Nicki responded to a false blog post by calling Brat “sir” in a tweet. The Young Money artist later apologized for her comments.
Brat also revealed the public could be hearing her on tracks with Missy Elliott, Trina, Shawnna, and Vita in the future. The So So Def representative also claims she is working on two separate television shows.
